Eberhard & Co. is known for its chronographs, but also produced high quality "techincal" watches, including the Scafograf dive model.
By the mid 1960's, the Scafograf had evolved to have a depth rating of 300 meters and a large case size of 42.5mm. The presence of date function further set the watch apart from its competitors.
Early Scafografs represent excellent value for what is a relatively rare and unusual dive watch.
- Eberhard & Co. was established in La-Chaux-de-Fonds in 1887. Eberhard was a purveyor to the Italian Military during the Second World War along with Officine Panerai.
- In 1935, Eberhard introduced this watch, a rather unique chronograph with two buttons featuring stop and start functions without the need of a reset.
- With its 39.5 mm. case, this watch stands well out of the crowd of its counterparts of the time.
