Eberhard & Co. Extra-fort Grande Taille

In view of the next international trade show Baselworld 2016, the Swiss watchmaker Eberhard & Co. has come up with an elegant new look for the Grande Taille version of one of its most characteristic models, the Extra-fort.

A skilful blend of technique and class makes Extra-fort Grande Taille a chronograph with great personality. It is available in four new dial variants, all with “frappé” finishing and snailed counters:

– Silver /silver counters
– Blue / silver counters
– Grey / grey counters
– Silver / black counters

All models have applied indices and Roman numerals.

The elegant, harmonious lines reveal a 41 mm steel caseback containing a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement. Water resistant to 50 m, the case of the Extra-fort Grande Taille is fixed with 6 screws; the model comes with an alligator strap or a “Chalin” steel bracelet.
