2019 has proven to be a significant year for Eberhard & Co. with the opening of its first museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds and the launch of its new EB140 caliber, a manual-winding movement exclusively produced by Eberhard & Co. in La Chaux-de-Fonds. It powers a likewise all-new model, the 1887 Remontage Manuel. The simplicity of the clean case design is nicely complimented by the “Clous de Paris” hobnail motif on the white dial with either gilded or rhodium-plated numerals and hour-markers. A date window at 6 o’clock sits below the “1887” logo, taken straight from the company’s archives dating back to the early 1900s. And inside beats the EB140 caliber, its balance wheel and bridge finished with a circular wave pattern visible through the sapphire caseback. As a first for Eberhard & Co., this model comes with an alligator strap as well as a new Jacquard patterned silk strap. Made in collaboration with the Ulturale tie-makers, widely considered the gatekeepers for the Neapolitan sartorial arts, the new wristbands add a certain flair to the watch as a nod to Eberhard & Co.’s Italian connections.
