Eberhard & Co. Extra-Fort Edition Vitree Chronograph Watch

by

You can always rely on Eberhard & Co. for classic looking watches with modern appeal. Back when Eberhard was perfecting their core designs, the attitude in the watch industry was function first design. It was about making a nice looking watch, that was first and foremost a highly legible and functional watch – before it was an impression piece. Sometimes today you have watch makers creating pure “novelties” that focus much less on being a good watch, and more on boldness or shock value. The Extra-Fort Edition Vitree Chronograph is watch with all the prowess of a classic timepiece crafted from modern materials and manufacturing practices (for a luxury Swiss watch that is).

The 39mm stainless steel case is well milled and features an anti-reflective coating applied sapphire crystal for optimal viewing. You can tell just how easy to read the dial is with its perfectly shaped and sized hands – with clearly viewable hour indicators. Eberhard traded lume for a more classic and elegant look. Inside the watch is an ETA Valjoux 7750 movement that has been modified for use in a bi-compax layout. The result is a 30 minute chronograph with a centralized date window. The movement with it’s decorated rotor, is viewable thought the case back window. The watch itself has many dial and strap options. Dial colors include black (glossy and matte), white, and chocolate brown. There are many matching straps available. The use of red stitching in the pictured strap to match the hands and tachymetre scale is sporty and suave. There is also a metal bracelet available. Eberhard & Co. has always been a solid watch maker. If the design appeals to you, have no hesitation about the quality and craftsmanship of the watch itself. THe Extra-Fort Edition Vitree Chronograph watches should be available soon.
