The 1887 Remontage Manuel

From Eberhard & Co -

I am, as a rule, not one prone to gushing. Having said that, this is one of the most beguiling new watches I have seen in a few years.

It is available with two different strap options, and although I know that the law of purchasing data would tell you that the black croc is the safe choice, I'm kinda' crushing on the jacquard silk option (below) -

This is, at least in my opinion, a wonderful departure for Eberhard. Don't get me wrong, the Traversetolo, the Chrono 4 and the Tazio Nuvolari (among others) are wonderful pieces and absolutely worthy of all of the praise that they receive. But having said that, this one is a bit special.

I could be wrong as I am writing this without the aid of a press kit, but I believe that the dial is available with a "full-steel" look (above) and my personal fave, with gold hands and indices (below) -

The movement is again, something a bit special -

Hand winding, it is referred to as the EB140.

The case is of stainless steel and measures 41.8 mm

This is listed on the Eberhard & Co. site as a novelty, so I am not sure about its availability, but reach out to your retailer ; )
