The MARC GEBAUER Edition by HOFFMAN is the first collaboration between Marc Gebauer and Will Hoffman. This limited edition series is an eclectic study of blue – powered by mechanical manual-wind movement.
The Racing 40 Mechanical MARC GEBAUER Edition comes in a 40MM polished, brushed steel case with a blue bezel and engraved markings. The edition features a unique 333 mark on the tachymetric scale instead of the usual 300 mark [in reference to Marc’s favorite number].
The edition’s rich blue dual-layered fume dial is a first for HOFFMAN and incorporates a customized logo at twelve o'clock.
The sub-dials are dark blue and features a circular embossed pattern. They're altered from the original series with the running seconds counter at 9 o'clock featuring the MARC GEBAUER logo and the stopwatch minute counter at 3 o'clock featuring the number 33 versus 30.
The hands are polished and black, reinforcing the gradient of the blue fume dial.
The edition is presented with an exhibition case back displaying the inner works of the mechanical movement, and each watch is individually numbered from one to 99.
Finally, the MARC GEBAUER Edition comes with an elegant blue Saffiano strap adding finesse to this eclectic racing chronograph.
"Working on this limited edition with Marc has been a true joy. The creative process and the final design convey Marc's passion for horology. The edition is as eclectic as him and one of the more unique designs we've made. Many design elements are completely new for us and will be cherished by its owner."
