Eberhard & Co. 8 Jours GRANDE TAILLE

Eberhard & Co. reinterprets one of its most famous classics and introduces the model 8 JOURS in a precious new GRANDE TAILLE (BIG SIZE) version.

The 8 JOURS by Eberhard & Co., was the first wristwatch to have an 8-day operating autonomy, thanks to a special winding element patented by Eberhard & Co., comprising two overlapping springs, whose combined length is over 1½ metres. By comparison, it is worth noting that a standard wrist watch has only one spring around 30 centimetres long.

The new 8 JOURS GRANDE TAILLE, in fact, offers not only a steel case of considerable size (Ø 41mm) compared to that of its predecessor, but, for the benefit of its many admirers, reveals part of its precious, hand-winding, mechanical movement.

From the porthole on the case back, protected by a sapphire crystal, it is, in fact, possible to admire the bridge of the large going barrel with its skeleton figure “8” silhouetted by the colour treatment, which shows off the underlying “œil de perdrix” finish on the underside of the 8, producing a three dimensional visual impact.

Through the 8, it is also possible to see 8 JOURS GRANDE TAILLE’s second spring in action, with its exceptional length of 1 metre 25 centimetres.

The Eberhard 8 JOURS GRANDE TAILLE watch is waterproof to 3 atmospheres, has a sapphire crystal and is available with a silver dial and Roman numerals, or with a white dial and Arabic numerals.
