Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 08, 2019: Eberhard & Co. pays tribute to the sporting spirit of the historic Italian brand with a new Limited Edition chronograph. This is the coming together of two powerhouses of innovation built on tradition, with the objective of maximum performance.
Certain brands know how to mix technical skills with passion, performance with emotion. These are the ones which have the power to endure, precisely because they push all the right buttons, in the head and in the soul.
Alfa Romeo and Eberhard & Co., each in their respective fields, have always shared the same goal: to hit the heart with unique products.
The aim of Eberhard & Co., founded in 1887 and nurtured in the heart of the Swiss watch region, has always been to challenge time, measuring it with relentless accuracy, providing to the worlds of sport, work and leisure instruments which are, of course, reliable, but also beautiful to look at and to wear on your wrist, with a charm that never fades over time.
For Alfa Romeo, established in Milan in 1910 and become a byword for automotive performance on a global level, the objective has been to create cars that are able to satisfy every possible need: unquestionable performance, reliability, safety, unmistakable style: values which are combined in the symbol of the “Quadrifoglio”, the four leaf clover, at the same time a lucky charm and an emblem of boldness, which has been the signature for Alfa Romeo’s most sporting models since 1923.
Today Eberhard is dedicating a unique timepiece to the automotive brand, conceived to convey all the technical prowess and style which, for generations, have characterized the products from these two bastions of innovation based on tradition.
The “Quadrifoglio Verde” Chronograph from Eberhard & Co. boasts a generous 43mm diameter steel case housing the automatic movement which animates three counters. Of these, the small seconds’ catches the eye first: its reading is given by a hand shaped as the triangular clover emblem. The tachymeter scale surrounding the deep black dial, inspired by the readability of Alfa Romeo’s dashboard instruments, neatly combines all the tradition of Eberhard & Co.’s chronographs with an automotive imprint. The satin-finished bezel and buttons contribute to the stylish balance of the case, which appears sporting and elegant in equal measure.
Only a lucky few individuals will have the chance to own one of the specimens available: the Limited Edition consists of just 250 pieces and will be on sale exclusively at Eberhard & Co.’s authorised dealers.
