EBERHARD & CO. SUPPORTS WOPART – WORKS ON PAPER ART FAIR

保薦

EBERHARD & CO. HAS BEEN ONE OF THE SPONSORS OF WOPART, FOLLOWING A TREND THAT IS INCREASINGLY LEADING THE BRAND TO SUPPORT ART EVENTS MARKED BY A COMMON DENOMINATOR: THE GOAL OF SPREADING INTEREST AMONG AN EVEN WIDER, YOUNGER AUDIENCE. IN CONJUNCTION WITH ITS LUGANO WATCHMAKING PARTNER MERSMANN, EBERHARD HAS PROVIDED A LOUNGE AT THE WOPART EVENT. HERE, VISITORS HAD A CHANCE TO DISCOVER THE HISTORY OF THE SWISS BRAND’S HOROLOGICAL CREATIONS.

TESTO_WOPART_2108_EBE_259x260px_v02 THE MODELS ON DISPLAY RETRACE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT STAGES IN THE LONG HISTORY OF EBERHARD: BEGINNING WITH AN 1894 POCKET MODEL, WE ARRIVE AT THE FIRST WRISTWATCH INTRODUCED IN 1919, MOVING ON TO AN EXAMPLE OF THE LEGENDARY EXTRA-FORT COLLECTION MANUFACTURED IN THE EARLY FORTIES, AND FINALLY ONE OF THE FAMOUS SCAFOGRAF DIVING WATCHES THAT TYPIFIED PRODUCTION IN THE SIXTIES. AMONG THE CONTEMPORARY MODELS, PRESENTED TO THE SWISS PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME, HAS BEEN THE NEW SCAFOGRAF “THE BLACK SHEEP”, AN ALL-BLACK VERSION OF THE WELL-KNOWN GMT MODEL.

WOPART, ESTABLISHED IN 2016, HAS UNDERGONE DEVELOPMENT THAT HAS LED TO A DOUBLE-DIGIT GROWTH, BOTH IN TERMS OF THE INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITORS AND THE ATTENDANCE OF VISITORS.
NUMEROUS FACTORS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THIS RAPID EXPANSION: THE QUALITY OF THE WORKS, THE EXPERTISE OF THE ORGANISERS AND THE FIRM BACKING OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT HAVE ALL HELPED MAKE WOPART AMONG ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT INTERNATIONAL EVENTS IN THE “WORKS-ON-PAPER” CATEGORY. IT IS ALSO THANKS TO THE CONSIDERABLE TURNOVER THE EXHIBITIONISTS HAVE BUILT UP THROUGH THE PARTICIPATION OF PROMINENT INTERNATIONAL COLLECTORS
WOPART VISITORS HAVE ALSO BEEN THE FIRST TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADMIRE A PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK CONCEIVED AND REALIZED FOR EBERHARD & CO. BY THE GREAT MASTER MARIO CRESCI, WHOSE INSPIRATIONAL PURPOSE IS CAPTURED IN THE TITLE “TEMPO E MOVIMENTO” [TIME AND MOTION].
