It is the power that animates the Eberhard & Co. creations since 1887, the strength of an uninterrupted history, the preciousness of a historical tradition and the passionate spirit that looks to the future.
All this finds expression in the new “1887 Remontage Manuel” model, a hand-wound watch animated by the EB140 calibre. It pays tribute to the Maison's foundation year, while representing a source of pride and a symbol of many decades of dedication to the Art of Challenging Time. “1887 Remontage Manuel” is the result of a project aimed at enhancing the uniqueness of the brand and its ability to make bold and independent choices.
The EB140 calibre – manufaturé en Suisse - is the heart beating inside the “1887 Remontage Manuel”: a hand-wound movement (14'''- 28,800 A/h-18 rubies) with an exclusive architecture and special technical and structural specifications. The aesthetic aspect also reveals meticulous care over details, particularly the bridge for the balance wheel and the large bridge for the gear trains, distinguished by the traditional finishing with a “circular wave” pattern. The screws are blued and the incisions are gilded.
The new "1887" model was designed to express all the potential of this calibre. It is a watch with balanced lines, with a 41.80 mm diameter steel case that leaves ample space for a dial of extreme elegance, available in two versions with gold or rhodium-plated numbers and indices. The taste is a bit "rétro", thanks to the "clous de Paris" workmanship and the trapezoidal date window, which has already been adopted by Eberhard & Co. for some historical models. The logo on the dial is part of the heritage and is documented in the archives of the early 1900s. The sapphire crystal case back certainly could not be missed: it proudly shows off the beauty of the EB140 calibre. Great detail has also been given to the choice of straps, among which, in addition to the traditional alligator models, a new creation will be presented. It is the result of a collaboration with the prestigious ULTURALE tie-makers, one of the bestknown ambassadors of this historic Neapolitan sartorial tradition. It is a Jacquard silk strap, in two different versions combined with the two dials, dedicated to the "dandy" of the new millennium and produced exclusively for Eberhard & Co.
Each item of the new "1887" was designed and built to create a true bridge between the Maison's past and future, while at the same time paying homage to all those who have made beautiful watchmaking their life's passion…their Love!
