EBERHARD & CO EXTRA FORT CHRONOGRAPH 18k ROSE GOLD

£0.00GBP
Extra Fort Ref. 14007

We purchased this watch from the original owner's son some time ago but have not been able to bare parting with it until now — and even now it will be extremely difficult.

This Eberhard Extra Fort Chronograph watch will come on a quality leather band and pink gold plated deployment buckle which can be seen in our photo's.

The dial, as you will see from our photographs is now showing some really nice signs of patina. In a positive and quite even way with odd marks but nothing that detracts from the overall condition of the watch. The rose/pink gold watch case has been simply cleaned and polished with a jewellers' rouge cloth and looks exquisite.

The watch has been serviced and for something that dates back to the 1950s is testament to the maker and the quality of the movement — as this piece is keeping absolutely fantastic time (approx. +/- 2 seconds).

For your information we received information as below from Eberhard & Co in the form of an email and for completeness sake include an extract of it below with further details of this watch:

“ Thank you for your email which retained our best attention and sorry for this late answer. When we received your request our offices were closed for the summer break and this kind of search takes always a long time.

From the pictures received, we can say that the reference 14007 corresponds to an “Extra-fort” chronograph with case made of 18 kt pink gold (diameter 39 mm ), with pressure case back and bezel, produced by Eberhard & Co. starting from the ‘50s.

The movement is mechanical with manual winding, Bicompax, anti-magnetic, with Incabloc system (anti-shock), pallet escapement, bimetal balance compensated with screws, 18,000 vib/h, 19 jewels, fixed balance-spring stud holder.

The chronograph is fitted with an Eberhard movement 14000 with split times device:

- pusher at 2 o’clock which functions are start - stop – reset of the chrono
- plate sliding at 4 o’clock which functions are stop and restart of the chrono without resetting for the split times (patent Eberhard & Co.)

The chronograph’s functions are regulated by a column wheel.

On the dial there are: the chrono minutes counter at 3 o’clock, the sweep seconds at 9 o’clock and the central seconds hand that counts the seconds of the chrono.

On the outer edge there is the printed tachometer scale used for the calcuation of the average speed in km/h on the basis of 1000 meters.

Hoping that this information will be appreciated, with the occasion we send you our kindest regards.
