Eberhard Co Extra Fort Chronograph

       A fascinating success story of the Swiss Haute Horology, Eberhard & Co, started its existence in the last decades of the 19th century under the name Manufacture d’Horlogerie Eberhard & Co, which later will be known just as Eberhard & Co, and it was the master creation of George-Emile Eberhard, an enthusiast young man, who launched his watch-manufacture at the age of 22.

       In over a century of prestige and tradition, his small brand, gradually developed into one of the most appreciated members of today’s luxury watchmaking industry, due to the irreproachable quality, outstanding design and immaculate timekeeping accuracy of its horological products.

       We also have to mention the profound connection between the watch-making brand and the exhilarating universe of car racing, which started many years ago, when Eberhard & Co was appointed official timekeeper of the first racing circuit held in Europe. This important event marked the historical evolution of the watch-manufacture, which never stopped to create outstanding timepieces, which testify about the fruitful intertwinement between Eberhard & Co, racecars, and the sophisticated watch line we are going to present to you in the following article is a great example of this strong connection.

       A superb addition to the brand’s emblematic Extra Fort Watch Collection especially created to bring a plus of style and distinction to any outfit, the new Eberhard & Co Extra Fort Chronograph Watch Line, comprises many remarkable models characterized by sporty dynamism and impeccable functionality.

       The models feature stylish round cases, measuring 40 mm in diameter, and 20 mm in thickness, nicely sculpted from stainless steel, or 18-karat white or pink gold, which demonstrate an elegant satin polished finish. Moreover, the remarkable architecture of the case, incorporates smooth chronograph push pieces and a fluted crown, and ensures a 50-meter water resistance.

       The models come matched with attractive dials, performed in black and white, and nicely completed with applied Roman numeral hour markers and sharp hands, performed in steel or pink gold; as far as the white gold model is concerned, it comes with a stylish silver dial fitted with interesting guilloche pattern. The models ensure a date function presented through a large aperture, at 12 o’clock position, central hours, minutes and seconds functions, 12-hours, 30-minutes and 60-seconds chronograph functions displayed through round counters located t 6, 3, respectively 9 o’clock positions.

       The models come matched with stylish black or brown crocodile leather straps, or masculine metallic bracelets, and accommodate best-quality self-winding mechanical movements, which confer optimal timekeeping accuracy and reliability. As far as the price tag goes, we expect it to be somewhere around $4,000.00.
