Meet Eberhard Co 8 Jours Grande Taille Watch

Dec 30, 2009
The renowned watchmaking house Eberhard & Co has successfully modified its iconic 8 Jours watch. The hallmark of this watch is represented by the respectable power reserve of eight days, which is attainable due to its patented winding mechanism. Now, the new interpretation of the acclaimed timepiece is available with an oversized 41mm case, sculptured in 18K pink gold.

The mechanism, incorporated into the watch case, is partially viewable. An aperture in the case-back enables the timepiece wearer to admire the bridge of the large skeleton barrel with its gilded figure 8. Thus, the owner of this intriguing watch is offered an opportunity to enjoy a three dimensional view that demonstrates the second winding spring at work.

The 8 Jours Grande Taille watch from Eberhard & Co provides the following functions - hours, minutes and seconds. The functions are animated by a manually-wound movement - the E&Co. 896.1.15"' calibre, which uses Peseux 7001 as its base.

The case of the watch is equipped with a water-resistant crown marked with the brands E logo. The front side of the case is fitted with a convex sapphire crystal. Its back side, meanwhile, is polished and screwed-down.

The white dial of the Eberhard & Co watch is completed either with Roman numerals against an azure background, or with Arabic numerals. It features a day-graduated power reserve indicator, located at 9 oclock. You will also notice the small seconds sub-dial, nestled at 6 oclock.

The Eberhard & Co 8 Jours Grande Taille watch is accompanied by a black crocodile leather strap, finished with an 18K pink gold buckle. The latter features the E&C inscription.
