Why We Love it

We've had a handful of Eberhards before, and it's safe to say that each one carries with it a distinct look and presence on the wrist. From the coveted Scafograf to the elusive 'snail dial' chronographs, Eberhard designs are endlessly interesting and seem to have personalities of their own. 

This particular Scafodat model dates to the 1960s and features a fantastic 35mm steel case, very much reminiscent of Omega Speedmasters of its era, an uncommon flat link steel bracelet with a signed clasp, a lovely silver sunburst crosshair dial with applied indices, and an asymmetrical date window - framing a 'roulette' date wheel.

This watch seems to have all of the things and is very much under the radar of collectors and enthusiasts alike. If you are looking to add a charming and sneaky piece into your collection that punches way above its weight class, this may just be a perfect option!

Overall Condition

The case is in very good condition overall showing normal signs of wear consistent with age and use. Sunburst silver dial with applied indices shows light patina and wear throughout with matching handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
Founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Georges Eberhard in 1887, Eberhard had by 1907 grown to be one of the largest watch companies in Switzerland. Literally — its headquarters on the Rue Leopold Robert spanned an entire block.
Some of the company’s earliest triumphs were in the realm of chronographs, including the debut of a double-pusher model in 1935 and a one with a rattrapante function in 1939. The eruption of World War II saw watches made by Eberhard, like many other manufactures, on the wrist of the world's militaries — a chronograph with a flyback complication was worn by officers in the Italian Navy. Civilian models from this period, with their distinctive 1940s stepped cases and short, curved pushers, are incredibly beautiful examples of contemporary design and rival those from the likes of Universal Genève and even Patek Philippe.
After the War, Eberhard expanded into wristwatch production geared toward practitioners of new sports such as SCUBA diving. Their Scafograph line, first released in 1958, featured 100, then 200 meters of water resistance. The Scafograf 300, which debuted in 1965, featured twisted lyre lugs similar to those of the Omega Seamaster 300, as well as a quirky asymmetrical date window and 300 meters of water resistance. The elegant Scafodat model of the 1960s, meanwhile, is not dissimilar in design to the Polerouter, though it was often equipped with a fine, matching flat-link bracelet and is much more difficult to find on the vintage market.
Though Eberhard exists today under new management and produces interesting, complicated watches, it’s their vintage wares from the 1940s through the late 1960s that best, to our mind, encapsulate the innovative design sensibilities of the original firm.
