Eberhard & Co. Extra-fort Grande Taille Mechanical Automatic Watch

Eberhard & Co. Extra-fort Grande Taille Mechanical Automatic Watch
One of the most characteristic chronographs from Eberhard & Co., the Extra-fort Grande Taille reaches a new level of sophistication and attention to detail. Its steel case moves to a 41-mm diameter, making it the largest in the collection.

The dimensions are dictated by the movement inside, a tried and trusted automatic chronograph whose natural thickness is offset by the rounded, bassine caseback. These elegant, harmonious lines effortlessly adjust to the curve of the wrist. The dial has been completely rethought. Still with a tachymeter scale, it comes as four variants: silver or blue with silver counters, grey with grey counters, or silver with black counters. All share a textured surface and new applied Roman numerals. The Extra-fort Grande Taille thus has all the qualities of tradition, elegance, refinement and lasting charm.
