The Von Doren Il Tempo Gigante Automatisk Kronograf is a collector's timepiece inspired by the iconic car from Norway's most successful movie, "Flåklypa Grand Prix" or "The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix." Since its release in 1975, the film has become a cultural phenomenon in Norway, making it the most widely seen Norwegian film of all time. The Il Tempo Gigante car featured in the film is a steampunk marvel, boasting a massive straight-12 engine, a supplementary jet engine in the rear, and an array of whimsical gadgets, reflecting a blend of creativity and engineering prowess.


Drawing inspiration from this legendary car, the watch pays homage to its unique features. The running seconds hand is designed to resemble a radar display, while the chronograph second hand is equipped with a distinctive crosshair. Both the hands and the chapter ring are adorned with Swiss Super-LumiNova BGW9, ensuring excellent readability in any lighting conditions.


Powering this timepiece is the La Joux-Perret Top Grade Caliber L112, a column-wheel-based chronograph movement known for its precision and reliability. The movement is housed in a meticulously crafted case made from brushed and polished stainless steel, offering both durability and a touch of sophistication.


Available here in black, the Il Tempo Gigante Automatisk Kronograf comes in a custom oak wooden box, designed in the distinctive Theodore Rimspoke style. Discover the Il Tempo Gigante at MVS Watches, where it is available to enthusiasts in immaculate preowned condition with free UK shipping.
