This chronograph timepiece was born when revolutionary Chrono 4 met TEMERARIO, Eberhard & Co.’s most daring and innovative interpretation of the chronograph. Temerario is a provocative name, it stands for those individuals who dare, and seek out a new challenge. Chrono 4 Temerario presents itself in a completely original and unique way.
With its large size, Temerario’s case has a domed tonneau-shape, with a slightly arched caseback that allows it to snugly adhere to the wrist, and a convex sapphire glass that follows the soft ergonomic design. Chrono 4 Temerario boasts 3 exclusive patents developed by Eberhard & Co. One of these regards the movement, another concerns the access system to the crown, and a third relates to the safety clasp of the leather strap and the bracelet.
Equipped with an automatic movement and an Eberhard & Co. device, Temerario represents a daring evolution of the chronograph with the auxiliary dials and counters aligned innovatively in a vertical row. A revolutionary solution, which required an in-depth study of the shape of the case and the design of the dial in order to balance the surface and ensure maximum visibility.
Starting at the top, we find the small dial with the continuous seconds, the 24 hours, the hour counter and the minute counter. The date is situated at 8 o’clock, so as not to overlap with the vertical counters. Beneath the case, at the level of the chronograph’s push button at 1 o’clock, there is a lever that when triggered releases the lid of a small chamber, at 12 o’clock, in which the crown is kept.
The device that opens the chamber is exclusive to Eberhard & Co. and is easily activated even while the watch is worn. The case is water resistant up to 30 metres and features two personalized chronograph push buttons, with an unusual triangular shape. The caseback is locked with four screws and bears the name Temerario, engraved in red.
Also red is the hand of the 24-hour counter. Chrono 4 Temerario is available with a leather strap, which is integrated through a support at the joining points, or with the new steel bracelet “Chasse”. Both are fitted with the innovative and exclusive deployment clasp Déclic by Eberhard & Co., which consists of a sliding security lever that, when blocked, prevents the accidental unlocking of the clasp.
The access device of the crown is activated by exerting pressure against a small lever situated on the case-back. Large fluted regulation crown (Ø 11,7 mm.)
Deployment clasp with safety lever, steel, embellishment “microbillée”, oxidized engravings. Steel CHASSE bracelet, crocodile leather strap.
