Eberhard & Co. is often associated with chronographs, having started producing the complication in the 1930’s. Although the brand is known less for its other technical models, Eberhard & Co. produced high quality “tool” watch models, including the Scientigraf, the Contograf, and the Scafograf.
In the 1950’s, Eberhard & Co. launched the Scafograf model line, a water-resistant dive watch that evolved to stand out from its competitors with the addition of a date display and large case size. The earliest Scafograf models were resistant to 100 meters, did not have a date display, and was produced in very limited numbers. The Scafograf 100 was followed by a 200-meter model that was available in date and no-date references.
In the mid-1960’s, the Scafograf had a depth rating of 300 meters and the case size increased to 42.5mm accommodate the cal. 266-123. The presence of a date function further set the watch apart from its competitors. The model continued to evolve into the 1970’s and 1980’s, and in 2016 Eberhard released a Scafograf 300 edition that was inspired by the 1960’s model.
Being more of a “collectors” watch, early Scafografs represent excellent value for what is a relatively rare and interesting dive watch.
