Eberhard And Co. 8 Jours Grande Taille 21027.2

Eberhard & Co. 8 Jours Grande Taille 21027.2

Eberhard & Co. has officially been relaunched here at AZ Fine Time with new distribution, a better supply of inventory, and even more important, new lower retail prices for the consumer.  A personal favorite has always been their 8 Jour Grande Taille, not just for its classic and elegant styling, but for incredible mechanics for a much lower price than most of its competitors.

Eberhard And Co. 8 Jours Grande Taille 21027.2

The term jour is french for day, obviously translating this piece to 8 day, which is in reference to the timepieces power reserve.  The 8 day power reserve is not a completely unique complication, but the system used by Eberhard & Co.  is.  Instead of using multiple barrels to achieve its extended power reserve, the 8 Jour utilizes 2 mainsprings overlapping each other.  One of the springs is a standard length of 30cm, while the other is an impressive 1.25m (totaling over 5 feet of mainspring).  This unique winding system is applied to the manually wound base of a Peseux 7001 (which is a part of ETA) and has a rate of 21,600 bph.  The top layer of mainspring is visible through a sapphire crystal porthole, exposing a perlage coated, blue “8” shaped bridge and has the mainspring visible underneath.  It is definitely intriguing to see the mainspring tighten as you wind up this piece, but the detail itself is very well done.  All this adds up to create the E&Co. 896 movement.

The 41mm case is in stainless steel (but does also come in 18k gold), and has a classy high polish finish all the way around.  The crown is fairly large, but not obnoxious.  While it does not dig into the wrist when worn, it is still easy to wind which is great because to reach a full 8 day power reserve, does take more than the average amount of winding.  The strap is a 19mm black crocodile leather with white accent stitching that only goes about half way down the strap.  The clasp is a nicely sculpted tang buckle, but deployment is optional.

The dial design is very well executed and has a pocket watch type look.  The roman numerals are painted on a silver embossed ring, while the rest of the dial is a matte white.  The hands are a black feuille shape and contrast the dial very well making for great legibility.  You will find your power reserve indicator at 9:00-10:00, which measures in days opposed to hours, and your small seconds counter at the sub dial at 6:00.

The details of the dial are subtle.  The silver rings embossing is something that cannot be determined from many photos, but add a very nice detail to accent the white.  The dial is protected by a slightly curved sapphire crystal and contributes to the 8 Jours soft round design.

The new MSRP of the Eberhard & Co. 8 Jours Grande Taille 21027.2 is $4,950.  This is about 12% lower than its previous MSRP, and still substantially less than most others .  As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996 or submit an inquiry through AZFineTime.com.

Eberhard And Co. Chrono 4 Grande Taille 31052.1

Eberhard & Co. Chrono 4 Grande Taille Ref. 31052.1

Georges Eberhard founded Eberhard & Co. watches way back in 1887.  Since the early 1900’s, they became renowned for their Chronometer and chronohraph pieces.  In 2001, Eberhard developed and patented a new variation of chronograph displaying the 1st inline 4 sub dial chronograph, the Chrono 4.

In 2008 they introduced the Grande Taille, a new variation of the Chrono 4 that had a sportier look, larger size and overall beautiful design. The piece in today’s review, the 31052.1 is a classic, semi-sporty piece that is a true eye catcher.

The 43mm case is done in an incredible high polish finish.  It is truly amazing how much the quality of finish impacts the total look of the watch.  The truly beautiful finish is also implemented on the hands and indexes.  In most settings, the hands and indexes reflect and appear to be black contrasting the white dial perfectly, making for great legibility.

The dial itself is a pure white , with silver Tachymeter scale  chapter ring.  This subtle detail adds much character.  The most unique aspect of this dial, is the way that the chronograph is displayed.  While you have your standard hour, minute and chronograph second hand centralized, there are 4 silver subdials that will display chronograph minutes and hours, 24 hour indicator, and actual seconds.  As I mentioned, this display is unique and proprietary to Eberhard.  There is also a date display at the 12 o’clock, which is fairly large and very easy to see.

The movement inside of the Eeberhard Chrono 4 31052.1 is the EB200, which is based on an ETA 2894-A2.  The heavily modified and decorated caliber contains 53 jewels, 28,800 bph and a 42 hour power reserve.  As you can imagine, it takes a ton of work, additional parts, and especially patience to make a base movement that generally displays its sub dials at 9, 6, and 3 o’clock with the date at 4 o’clock, to display an inline chrono with an extra 24 hour indicator (which only syncs to the actual time and indicates AM/PM) and has the date at 12 o’clock.

This complicated Chrono retails for $7,860.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996.  To see more Eberhard & Co. Chrono 4’s, CLICK HERE.

Eberhard & Co. Traversetolo Vitre 21020.01

Eberhard & Co. dates back as far as 1887 and has a rich history in high quality timepieces.  While the brand has only a small distribution to the US, and is very tough to come by nowadays, the brand still inherits original philosophy of building beautiful precision timepieces.  In today’s review, we bring you the Eberhard & Co. Traversetolo Vitre 21020.01

The Traversetolo comes in a few different executions, but the Vitre is a personal favorite.  The reason behind this is because it has a sapphire crystal exposing the movement, where the standard is a closed case back.  The 3rd variation of this model is a left handed Vitre, which also has the open case back.  There’s a lot to be said about the quality decoration on the 17 jewel manual wind movement.  There is perlage on every exposed piece of the movement, blue screws and even a weighted balance wheel.  While it appears to be an immaculately constructed movement, the feedback on accuracy has been impressive to say the least too.  Always a great combo.

This simplistic but elegant piece is a 43mm stainless steel case with a high polish finish.  The crown is fairly large to make for easy manual winding, but is not obnoxious.  There is a dual anti-reflective domed sapphire crystal protecting the pure white dial.  The heavily lumed hands and large Arabic numerals make for a very legible piece during day or night.  The strap is also a really cool padded calf that protrudes out of the center of the strap with contrast dual stitching.
