Born in the 1950s, Extra-fort by Eberhard & Co. is a watch that has signed an era, marking a precious milestone in the history of Swiss Maison and whole watchmaking. Its unmistakable charm is destined to last over time and the present watch is a great example of this elegance. The caliber 16000 with manual winding equips a very nice stainless steel case with stepped bezel, snap on case back and olive shaped pushers. The dial is really attractive with its blue tachymeter scale still crisp and in clear condition, the dauphine hands in yellow gold resume the gold of the baton indexes while the two, big compaxes for constant seconds and 30 minutes registration complete the whole picture in a harmonious way.
