Read all about it! Sometimes, I come across the watch that I know I just have to bring to your attention – and today’s piece, on offer from the folks at Eberhard, is no exception. And yes, it’s a stunning piece, but it was actually the name that put it into this post.
And what is the name of this 125th annivesary model, you might ask? It’s the Extra-Fort (go ahead, say it in your head in the movie trailer guy voice). Extra! Fort! And yes, I’m writing about this watch simply because of it’s name. I just plain like it.
But of course, a watch doesn’t sell on it’s name alone, now does it? Thankfully, this watch has a great list of features:
- 41mm steel or rose gold case (15mm thick; 20mm lugs)
- Movement: Eberhard caliber EJ8150 (based off of the Valjoux 7750)
- Sapphire crystals front and back
- Water resistance to 50 meters
- Big date display
Now, this is a limited edition piece (only 500 will be made). That limited availability, plus that stunning movement (amirite, or amirite), means this isn’t going to be a watch you pick up on a whim (at least I won’t be). If you’re in the market, though, you’ll need to visit a higher-end retailer (listed here) to see if any are still available, and at what price.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
