About Chrono 4 Géant Collection
After having revolutionized the reading of time, thanks to the specially patented device aligning four counters, the Company’s emblem collection reveals with Chrono 4 Géant a maximum expression of compactness, strength and dynamism. This is the definition of a chronograph that creates a strong and decisive impact with an imposing 46mm diameter steel case, a rotating bezel with PVD-treated screws, a thick, anti-reflective sapphire crystal and water-resistance up to 200 metres.
A particular characteristic of the chronograph is its meticulous exploration of the three-dimensional and its surprising multi-level implementation of the results. Worth special mention in this context the subtle circular metal plate mounted on the dial and the screws on the sides of the case, on the bezel and the case back. Further confirming the distinctly sporty, gutsy character of Chrono 4 Géant are its unmistakable red features that stand out proudly on the dial. Chrono 4 Géant is thus truly part of the constant evolution of the projects and ideas signed “Eberhard & Co.” that now are coming skillfully and dynamically into focus in a chronograph of indomitable strength.
In 2011, The Chrono 4 Géant collection is being enhanced with the special titanium edition (Ref. 37060), limited to 1887 models celebrating the Eberhard & Co.’s foundation year. Proposed in a special limited edition of 500 pieces, Chrono 4 Géant Titane (Ref. 37061) celebrated 10 years of Chrono 4. A commemorative series with black or dial, on which the large red Roman numeral “X” stands out, as a symbol of a decade of passion, research and technique, in the purest Swiss tradition. Also the caseback, personalized with the engravings “2001 – 2011. 10 Ans de Chrono 4”, celebrates this anniversary.
Chimère is the titanium bracelet that comes with the two special commemorative versions of the Chrono 4 Géant Titane, limited respectively to 500 and 1887 pieces. Equipped with a new clasp created by Eberhard & Co., operated by a new double push-button system, including 6 extending links with special self-locking screws – also especially designed by the Swiss Maison – Chimère is a brand new precision feature, the brainchild of the Swiss Maison’s own technical research and innovative spirit.
