Blue is the official colour of Eberhard & Co. and it is also the colour that adorns the new version of the ‘1887’ model.
Equipped with the exclusive EB140 manual-winding calibre, the ‘1887 Remontage Manuel’ timepiece features an architecture designed for the Maison of La Chaux-de-Fonds and specific technical and structural specifications.
The movement is characterised by attention to detail, particularly in the area of the balance-cock and the large gear bridge, both rhodium-plated, with circular waves in the centre and a spiral paper perimeter while the screws are blued and the engravings are gilded.
The steel case, with a diameter of 41.80 mm, houses the blue dial with ‘Clous de Paris’ finishes, featuring Roman numerals, rhodium-plated indexes and a trapezoidal date window positioned at 6 o’clock.
The uniformity between the dial and the blue alligator strap enhances the timepiece which, as its name tells us, embodies and represents Eberhard & Co.’s strong link with its history and its foundation, created in 1887 in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
To mark brand history and its roots while further consolidating the return to its origins, the internal EB140 calibre was created and integrated in the ‘1887’ model designed for this occasion.
