By TLex Eberhard & Co.'s flagship collection gets a new all-black edition. The technically complex, Chrono 4 Géant "Full Injection" will only be produced in single run of 500 watches. Its Stainless steel case and buckle have been treated with black DLC-Dianoir®, a patented carbon surface treatment 'Diamond Like Coating'. The 46mm case has also undergone a specialized process of low-temperature carbon diffusion that hardens the steel by allowing carbon atoms to penetrate its surface - very cool!
These two processes help to strengthen the watch's resistance to wear and tear whilst adding to its aesthetic. The black theme is continued onto the watch dial with its 'Côtes de Genève' motif, color-coordinated 'snailed' counters, and the black rubber divers rubber strap with its vertically sculpted lines. An ultra high-tech sports model its is, but it's just another iteration! Who remembers the Eberhard Scafodat 500? Now that's a really lovely diver!
