    In the 1950s, Eberhard & Co. launched its first diver’s watch collection - the Scafograf. Through time, the water resistance of the Scafograf series progressed: from 100 meters for the earliest models up to 1000 meters with the Scafograf 1000M in 1983.

    The current model, Scafograf 200, is the sophomore model of the series and offers water resistance of up to 200 meters. The present watch features a beautiful black dial with gilt markings of the Eberhard brand, the model and the depth rating. The hour markers, which have developed a lovely verdigris green patina, were made of tritium. Adding an element of intrigue, the designation of tritium is not included on the dial, likely because it was created in a transitionary period of which manufacturer switched from radium to tritium. The hands, with an enlarged diamond arrow for the hour hand, an elongated minute hand and a Lollipop-shaped second hand, match the verdigris green patina of the indexes.

    The black bezel, a newly-added feature, is rotatable and preserved in excellent condition. The movement of the watch is based on a Felsa 1560 and is nicely finished by Eberhard. According to our research, the Scafograf 200 reference 11536 was produced only with 300 pieces. The current timepiece is numbered 247, signifying that it is one of the last examples of the series. The vintage Scafograf 200 is by all means an intriguing timepiece and continues to be widely adored by collectors.

    Eberhard

    Swiss • 1887

    From its earliest days, Eberhard & Co. has sought to bring innovation and precision to watchmaking. As early as the 1890s, the firm introduced a patented setting mechanism to its pocket watches, and in 1905 they introduced a digital system for reading the hours and minutes on a wristwatch. Throughout the firm's long history, they have produced high-quality chronograph watches, introducing their first chronograph wristwatch in 1919.  Highly sought-after by collectors, Eberhard's first split-seconds chronograph appeared in 1939. Another key model is the Scafograph 100, an extremely rare diving model introduced in the 1950s. In 2001, Eberhard & Co. made history with their Chrono 4 model, the first chronograph wristwatch with counters horizontally arranged in one row.
