Swiss luxury watch maker Eberhard & Co presents two new watch models this year “The 8 JOURS GRANDE TAILLE ” in Rose Gold and “The Extra-Fort Edition Vitrée”.
8 JOURS GRANDE TAILLE in Rose Gold
The 8 JOURS Grande Taille collection has been complemented by a new version in rosé gold. The 8 JOURS by Eberhard & Co. was the first wrist watch with an indicator for an eight-day power reserve. A technical feat that was made possible by a special patented device with two superimposed springs with a combined length of one and a half metre.
The “Grande Taille”, originally devised in a steel version and now presented with a gold case, reveals the movement with all its nobility and exclusiveness.The rosé-gold version of the 8 JOURS GRANDE TAILLE has the same characteristics as the steel model. The generously dimensioned 42 cm case has been retained.
An especially refined special feature is the caseback that allows watch enthusiasts to catch a glimpse of the precious mechanical movement with hand winding. Through the bull’s eye on the caseback, made of sapphire glass, you can gaze at the bridge of the large barrel, adorned with a silhouetted “8”, and at the coil of the second spring with its extraordinary length of one metre and 25 centimetres.
Once again, Eberhard & Co. demonstrates with this new and prestigious rosé-gold version how much care the company devotes to even the smallest detail. One example of that care is the silhouetted “8” in relief and its gold-plated finish, enhanced by the special “Black-or” treatment that makes the new model even more precious.
The 8 JOURS GRANDE TAILLE is water-resistant to 3 atm. It is available with a white dial and Arabic or Roman numerals and has a crocodile strap with an 18 ct. gold clasp.
