Eberhard & Co.  - A Singular Duo of Triangles

Eberhard & Co. A Singular Duo of Triangles

Focus on the Scafograf 300 “MCMLIX” Edition and Scientigraf

Between 1959 and 1961, Eberhard launched two timepieces that were to leave a mark on the brand’s history. Both the Scafograf and Scientigraf are part of Eberhard’s hall of fame as they went on to become very successful, each in its own right. In 2020, the La Chaux-de-Fonds brand is releasing hommage versions of these two models, with a consistency in style on the dials. Both feature striking triangular indices. This is no coincidence as both initial versions were launched one after the other, at a time when design updates were fewer and further between as they are today. So both the contemporary Scafograf 300 “MCMLIX” Edition and Scientigraf bear some resemblance. Yet in truth, they were meant for and remain destined to altogether different uses.

Ancient Waters

Created in 1959, the Scafograf is one of the earliest diving watches. In those years, Eberhard & Co. launched also watches water-resistant to 200- 300-500-1000m, which was bascally the deepest any retail timepiece could go. The original sturdy design has since been updated, especially in 2016. The Scafograf 300 “MCMLIX” Edition is a throwback to the year, colours and styling of the very first Scafograf. Especially the choice of luminescent, applied hour markers and cardinal points on the dial. But in the meantime, it has gained the attributes of a perfectly functionnal professional diver. The bezel ring is made of black ceramics, the steel case is water-resistant to 300 meters and the full steel caseback is screwed, and engraved with the line’s insigna, a A singular duo of triangles.
