Traditional Swiss watch brand Eberhard & Co. has created a special edition timepiece in association with Moreschi, the legendary Italian manufacture which produces most elegant shoes and other leather goods.
One of the best examples of Swiss excellence in the watch-making world paired with the most sophisticated of leather goods has produced the “Extra-fort Special Edition for Moreschi”; an elegant and refined watch that best expresses a number of characteristics shared by the two companies: a unique and unmistakable style, timeless class and great attention to detail.
The idea of creating an Eberhard & Co. watch for Moreschi was inspired by the long-standing and deep-rooted bond of friendship and mutual respect between the two companies: indeed, the watchmaker’s timepiece owned by Mario Moreschi, the company’s founder and grandfather of the current proprietor, dates back to 1949. Jealously guarded and handed down from generation to generation, as tradition would have it for the most valuable and best-loved products, this watch has been a source of inspiration for both companies, eventually leading to the idea of creating a special product that would combine Swiss watch-making know-how with Made in Italy craftsmanship.
After being “unveiled” for the very first time at the international watch-making fair in Basel, the model, in a limited edition of 200 pieces, was officially presented at the Milan Men’s Fashion Week (17 - 21 June) during a dedicated event in Milan on Monday 20 June, at Pisa Orologeria.
The watch will be available as from the autumn in Moreschi mono- and multi-brand stores around the world.
