  • Catalogue Essay

    Over the years as knowledge has increased throughout the watch collecting community, the value of Eberhard chronographs has increased with it. Powered by the Eberhard 1600 movement, the present split seconds is housed in a 40 mm. diameter case. The case itself is in extremely crisp well preserved condition and has not become oxidized; the movement is still very clean. Overall the watch is in very attractive and original condition.

  • 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.
