To commemorate the 85th anniversary of the world’s most demanding racetrack, Nordschleife has released its 1927 24-hour wristwatches to the general public.

The track, most well-known for the 24 Hours of Nürburgring originally opened for business back on June 18th, 1927 under the name of “Mountain, Racing and Testing Track.” And to make it the perfect companion to those attending the famed race, the timepiece from Nordschleife has its dials displaying all 24 hours of the day, as opposed to the more traditional 12 on conventional watches.

The stainless-steel timepieces are available in 1.4 or 1.7 inch cases in either white or black. Pricing is affordable too, at around $110 for the smaller piece, and $140 for the larger one. Those interested in purchasing the watch may have some difficulty telling time at first, due to its 24-hour setup.

A black leather strap accompanies the stainless-steel case while a Swiss quartz movement keeps time precise.
