Eberhard & Co. Champion V Watches
New from Eberhard & Co.
For 2012 Eberhard & Co. will release these two rather clean looking sport watches called the Champion V. These are new versions of older Eberhard Champion watch collection pieces released about 20 years ago. The same sober looks are maintained while the Champion V watches are more modern in each way. I don’t know why, but in their press release each time they write "Champion V," the Roman numeral 5 is done in a red font.
There are going to be two distinct Champion V models. One will just be called the Champion V and the other will be called the Champion V Grande Date. While they are both decent watches I must admit to not understanding why the two models exists. I think they should have just made the Champion V Grande Date. Let me explain…
Both versions offer multiple dial styles and colors. The styles range a lot actually and dial colors can come in blue, black, or white with different trims. The two watches have the same case – which is 42.80mm wide and 14.45mm thick. So what is the difference? Well they have different movements.
