At Baselworld 2017, Eberhard & Co. celebrate their 130th anniversary with a new version of their classic Chrono 4 with four counters in a row. The counters display minutes, hours, 24 hours and small-seconds, with date at 12 o’clock. It’s a very unusual chronograph, launched originally in 2001. The arrangement was patented by Eberhard and it has remained unique in the field of watches.
The EB 251 automatic movement is based on the ETA 2894-2, modified by Eberhard & Co., with a total of 53 rubies. The caseback, like the previous Chrono 4 models, is solid, with a central medallion celebrating the 130th anniversary.
Three colour variants
The watch is 42 mm in diameter and 13.3 mm thick, with a 50 metre water resistance. There are three dial versions, grey, argenté and black. The argenté dial is particularly attractive with different finishes that create interesting colour reflections, pinkish in the central soleil part, grey on the outer part of the dial, with orange details. The strap is in a carbon-texture material, with steel buckle.
The watch is reference 31129, and it costs €4,880 plus tax.
