Gritty trio by TCM



It is an all-Italian story that of the Sorci Verdi and concerns the 12th Squadron, which had as its mascot the three green mice painted on its nacelle. In the 1930s, the squadron achieved numerous successes in the international field, putting itself in the limelight in speed races and air raids that had great resonance at the time. Dedicated to the Sorci Verdi is the Mancino collection of the Earth Sky Sea and one of the models is the chronograph with a steel case, 47 millimetres in diameter, which houses a dial with a matt black background on which the three embossed enamel mice, SuperLuminova-treated indexes and chrono hour and minute counters, and the continuous seconds counter stand out. The caseback is engraved with the image of the aircraft used by the Green Sorci, namely the S 79. Equipped with a black deer strap with green stitching, it is fitted with a chronograph movement and is on sale at a price of €1,790. Also belonging to the Mancino line is the House's solotempo, which has the same case and back as the previous model; the strap, however, is in vintage-effect leather, the movement has a basic ETA 6497 manual calibre and is priced at €890. The Aviatore della Terra Cielo Mare model is dedicated to the legend of the MC 72 seaplane, piloted by Maresciallo Francesco Agello who achieved the absolute speed record of 709 km/h, never before achieved. The engraving of the MC 72 is engraved on the case back, which houses an ETA calibre 2824 automatic movement. The price of this creation is 770 euros.
