I wish they could make more watches like this...they used to produce some pretty funky chronos back in the day...

I did try the former but perhaps I was not as observant.

but a bit too thick for me at 14mm.

Not the thinnest...

Due to the officer's case back...

Yes just like

the Montblanc Villeret monopusher I once owned but it is possible for a manufacturer to make a manual chronograph with a hinged back with a thin case but it would probably cost a lot more money eg Patek Philippe.

Wow

There is a watch that ticks all the boxes for me. My only wish is that were more modern manual chronos available for an affordable price hehe. Have a great sunday!

I agree David!

Manual chronos with good finishing at a good price is almost a contradiction. You have a pleasant Sunday too! I am on Monday mode here

David Kang, Obligado for bringing to out attention. Your 10th Anniversary Eberhard Chronograph is beautiful inside and outside. 1987 is from before my time as I did not collect Eberhard watches until 10 - 15 years later. They had some nice watches and eve...

Eberhard used to make beautiful chronos

Especially the pre extrafort ones...the nuvolari is pretty cool, not really my style but is very original and unique cheers!

This watch is pure class, all the way! I love it when watch companies actually do a good job of such celebration pieces.

Everything about it harkens back, and that massive, stout balance cock looks like it means business. Oh, I'd rather have larger sub dials on a chronograph, but these are the right size for this reminder of the past. Bargain, eh? Well… I'd better start loo...

It shouldn't be that hard

For brands to create a nice commemorative watch hehe yes, the subdials are a bit tiny but I think it adds to the character cheers, dk
