Eberhard has a special relationship with the Italian brand Alfa Romeo. To celebrate the 110th anniversary of the car manufacturer, the Swiss Maison has created a new chronograph model.
Produced in only 110 pieces, the new 110th Alfa Romeo Anniversary Limited Edition comes in a 42 mm x 13.45 mm round case crafted from stainless steel that is strongly characterised by a chronograph start/stop pusher at 2 o'clock inspired by the shape of a cylindrical piston and a coaxial push button controlling the reset function on the large crown at 3 o’clock.
Water resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet, the timepiece has a flat sapphire glass caseback, which is personalised with engravings and the Alfa Romeo logo, and closed with 6 screws.
Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, the anti-magnetic and anti-shock automatic chronograph movement is embellished by blue screws and rubies with golden circular engraving as well as by Côte de Genève and perlage decorations. The oscillating weight features personalised decoration and Côte de Genève finish.
The white dial features a raised engraving of the new Alfa Romeo celebratory logo: two number “1” that follow a perspective line which represents the transition from past to present, culminating in the number “0”, inside which is a "Biscione", the grass snake of the Visconti noble dynasty which, during the Middle Ages, became the symbol of Milan, where Alfa Romeo was founded in 1910.
The three counters follow a 3-6-9 layout with the chronograph 30 minutes at 3 o'clock, chronograph 12 hours at 6 o'clock and continuous seconds at 9 o'clock. The dial is completed by black “skeleton" hour and minutes hands with black luminescent insert.
Matched to a grey rubberised fabric strap, the Eberhard 110th Alfa Romeo Anniversary Limited Edition ref. 31072 will be sold exclusively at Authorised Eberhard dealers at the indicative price of CHF 5,500. eberhard-co-watches.ch
