New dials now enhance and complement the Extra‐fort Automatic range, the time‐only model from one of the watchmaker's oldest and most emblematic collections. With these new versions Eberhard & Co. once again expresses its taste for elegance and for harmonious forms and colours which, through the classic appearance of the Extra‐fort Automatic, reaffirms values which will last over time.
The range now includes three brand new dials: “argenté”, black and grey, for a sober but sophisticated style. The dials also feature Roman numerals together with rhodium‐plated indices in the outer area, ensuring clear legibility at all times. The “azurée" finishing, a decorative technique applied to the surface of the outer area, together with the “frappée” finishing in the central area, creates a compelling contrast of colours and styles and transforms the watch in a perfect marriage of craftsmanship and modernity.
With a look seemingly unchanged in decades, the Extra‐fort can be considered the forefather of the contemporary chronographs in the elegant‐sports segment. At the beginning of this century, in response to specific market demand for smaller, more simple watches, the Extra‐fort range was expanded to include a non‐chronograph version with just time and date functions, the emblem of a classic look which has gained many admirers among lovers of fine horology. It is this version, the Extra‐fort Automatic that Eberhard has updated, enriching the range of new dials available.
