This racing driver watch is named after the AVUS BERLIN (Automobil Verkehrs und Übungs Straße), a circuit opened in 1921 on the outskirts of Berlin which is currently part of the A115 Autobahn. In this racetrack that hosted the first German Grand Prix in 1926 and the Formula 1 German Grand Prix in 1959 (with Ferrari on the three steps of the podium), drove and won drivers as Rudolf Caracciola, Tazio Nuvolari or Bernd Rosenmeyer.
