Chrono 4 Geant Full Injection from Eberhard

The Chrono 4 Géant collection is being enhanced with a new super-cool total black
edition: Chrono 4 Géant “Full Injection“. The timepiece, that perfectly combines
technique and aesthetical elegance, is produced in a limited series of 500 pieces.

The complexity of the construction process, which makes this chronograph even
more precious, allows in fact for only a limited production. The 46 mm case of
Chrono 4 Géant “Full Injection” is particularly remarkable for the use of a special
treatment consisting in an advanced low temperature carbon diffusion. This allows
the carbon to penetrate the steel surface for 30 μm (micrometers), thus producing a
structural hardening. With the steel’s hardness increase, the watch-case wear resistance
and fatigue-limit are improved.  Afterwards, the beautiful black colour is obtained thanks
to the treatment DLC – Dianoir® - Diamond Like Coating – which, by providing the
steel case and buckle with a black coating, gives the watch a particularly sporty and
attractive look.

Chrono 4 Géant Full Injection is unique also from the styling point
of view: the black shade is extended to the chronograph push buttons and crown and
the black dial, with black counters and red counters’ hands, features a circular metal
plate with a “Côtes de Genève” decor.

The name of the model - “Full Injection“ – is engraved on the case-back.
Water-resistant to 200 metres, this chronograph comes with a vertically sculpted rubber strap
that underlines its explosive energy.

Chrono 4 Géant has been made stronger than ever, because when the going gets
tough, the tough get going...
