Eberhard’s Hardcase Chronograph

  • James D. Malcolmson

Having produced several versions of its highly recognizable four-counter in-line chronograph, the Swiss watchmaker Eberhard has now released a model designed for pure durability. The Chrono 4 Géant “Full Injection” (around $12,000) is subjected to a special process to saturate its steel case with carbon, thereby creating a harder, more scratch-resistant material. The case is then coated with a diamond-like carbon treatment for color. The watch also boasts water resistance up to 200 meters and a textured rubber strap. (603.206.5195 www.eberhard-co-watches.ch)
