Eberhard and Co Glamorous event with Christa Rigozzi

Eberhard and Co Glamorous event with Christa Rigozzi
Christa Rigozzi unveils the Eberhard and Co. collections to an audience of fans in the Canton of St. Gallen.

During the evening organised together with the Frischknecht jewellers of St. Gallen and the Goodtimer showroom of Sankt Margrethen, Christa Rigozzi, one of the best loved Miss Switzerland’s of recent years, was entrusted with the task of telling the fabulous story of Eberhard & Co., the watchmaking company founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1887 as well as presenting the latest collections.

Against the superb backdrop of the “Goodtimer” vintage car showroom, the guests’ attention was naturally focused on the “Tazio Nuvolari” collection, dedicated by Eberhard to the great Italian car racing champion and on the newest limited edition Tazio Nuvolari 336, a model with dual-time function.

The many ladies present were attracted by the special edition of “Gilda” which sparkled on Christa’s wrist. With its cascade of nearly 500 diamonds, this is the most luxurious version of Eberhard & Co.’s women’s timepieces.

Mario Peserico, General Manager of Eberhard & Co., had this to say at the end of the evening: “We’ve lived a few hours of full immersion in beauty: splendid watches, cars that are the stuff of dreams, an exceptional hostess who is the ideal embodiment of the Eberhard “essence de la femme”. Eberhard’s story is one of skill and research stretching back nearly 130 years, with a deep-rooted bond with the motoring world; this event has given us the chance to emphasise its most fascinating aspects.”
