Eberhard Scafodat

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!

The Story

Founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Georges Eberhard in 1887, by 1907 the manufacture had grown to be one of the largest 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 chronograph in 1935 and a chronograph 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.

After the war, along with much of the Swiss watch industry, the manufacture broadened its production to encompass watches meant for sports that emerged in the post-war period. But the brand’s best-known product is without a doubt the Scafograf dive watch, a perennial favorite of collectors.

However, theirs was an expansive output, encompassing everything from delicate time-only ladies’ watches to other, more complicated creations
