Eberhard & Co. Extra-Fort
Step into the world of vintage watchmaking with the rare and highly-coveted Eberhard Extra-Fort chronograph. This timepiece boasts a bold and striking 40mm stainless steel case that was considered gigantic in the 1940s, but today is the perfect size for modern watch enthusiasts.
The Salmon dial of this chronograph is a true standout, featuring a telemeter scale around the edge and a snail-shaped tachymeter scale in the center, making it a multi-scale dial. The registers at three and nine o’clock are in line with the center post, providing additional symmetry. The silver ring around the hour markers creates a two-tone effect that beautifully complements the salmon dial and silver tachymeter scale, while the blued steel hands add a touch of sophistication.
This chronograph is more than just a pretty face – it’s a practical timepiece too. Despite featuring two buttons on the three o’clock side, it is actually a single-button chronograph, also known as a monopusher, with start, stop, and reset functions all operated by the pusher at two o’clock. The button below the crown works as a slide lock that can be slid toward the crown to lock the primary pusher from being engaged, thus preventing accidental activation of the chronograph.
What sets this particular example apart is its authentic and unrestored dial, which shows its age and adds character to the piece. The non-lume dial, with matching hands, may have patina and scratches, but it’s all part of the watch’s unique story. The patina on the dial has aged gracefully, giving it a one-of-a-kind aesthetic that’s sure to turn heads.
Overall, the Eberhard Pre-Extra Fort chronograph offers incredible value, especially considering its rarity, in-house movement, and perfect size for modern-day wear. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of vintage watchmaking history.
