New Look for Eberhard & Co. Extra-Fort Grande Taille Chronograph Watches

In view of Baselworld 2016, the renowned Swiss luxury watch brand Eberhard & Co. has presented the new look for the well-known Extra-fort Grande Taille chronograph watches distinguished by their unique personality. But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s remember why the elegant yet sports Extra-fort model is considered the forefather of contemporary chronograph watches for men!

The Extra-fort collection of high end watches is one of the brand’s most emblematic and oldest series. It was created in the 1940s. Since then, Eberhard & Co. has produced a variety of special editions and outstanding variations of the Extra-fort model, including split-second watches and column wheel chronograph watches. It is worth noting that in the early 2000s, in response to market demand for more classic and smaller timepieces, the Extra-fort line was expanded to include rather simple non-chronograph models, Extra-fort Automatic. These new design watches with time and date functions have become not less popular than original chronograph wrist watches. Moreover, Extra-fort Automatic models designed with different dial colors are still a true emblem of classic look preferred by luxury watch lovers and connoisseurs of fine watchmaking all over the world.

This year, Eberhard & Co. once again expands the famous Extra-fort collection paying tribute to its history and values with an exclusive, sophisticated chronograph model imbued with timeless elegance, as well as with brand’s passion and long-standing tradition. Such a great combination of classic appearance and watchmaking technologies makes the Extra-fort Grande Taille model a truly exceptional timepiece suitable for any man.

The new Extra-fort model will be introduced at Baselworld 2016.

Thus, you can choose your perfect Eberhard & Co. watch with chronograph among the following options: blue dial with silver counters, silver dial with silver counters, grey dial with grey counters, and silver dial with black counters. All brand new watches come in 41mm stainless steel cases equipped with mechanical chronograph movements with automatic winding. The thickness of such a case is 13.9mm. It is water-resistant up to the depth of 50 meters. Each model features an engraved, polished “bassine” case back secured by six screws. Besides, the new Extra-fort Grande Taille chronograph has an aperture for the date located at the 6 o’clock position. The model comes with a “Chalin” bracelet made of stainless steel, as well as with an alligator leather strap in black or brown color.
