  • Catalogue Essay

    The present Eberhard Scafograf 200 is a true collector grail piece as very few appear on the market, especially in such well preserved condition.

    Eberhard introduced its firs dive watch the Scafograf 100 in 1958, a 36mm watch with a 100 depth rating, A year later a new version with 200 meter rating - the Scafograf 200 - was introduced. This time with a larger 39mm case and a rotating bezel.

    The Scafograf 200 was originally launched without crown guards but rapidly the brand introduced a second generation featuring crown guards. The model existed with date or without like the present example.

    The present Sacfograf 200 is a very well preserved example with a beautiful black dial that doesn't show signs of ageing, lovely gilt colored script and the model's signature large triangle indexes at 12, 3, 6 and 9 and large circles for the other hour markings . The hands, with an enlarged diamond arrow for the hour hand, an elongated minute hand and a Lollipop-shaped second hand, match the cream patina of the indexes.

    An elusive and rare watch the Scafograf 200 will please not only the collector of dive watches but also the savvy collector looking for unusual vintage timepieces.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
