Eberhard & Co. New SCAFOGRAF 300

It was the 1950s when the Swiss watchmaker Eberhard & Co decided to conquer the sea and its mysterious depths. These were the years in which Eberhard & Co. presented its Scafograf collection, designed to be worn by the adventurous and sporty with a dynamic spirit and love of life. Enriched over the years, the collection was made up of steel models which were water-resistant to 100, 200, 300, 400, 750 or 1000 metres, with or without a rotating bezel and luminescent hour markers.

The Scafograf 300 incorporated all the main features required of a dive watch: automatic with a sturdy, shock resistant steel case (Ø 42.5 mm), a graduated black bezel to control elapsed dive time, a high-contrast dial with luminescent hands and markers and a stainless steel expandable bracelet; everything that intrepid divers and water-sports aficionados would need in the enthralling depths. The date at 3 o’clock - unusual for a dive watch - and the look of this model made it agreeably suitable for every day wear. The 300 in the name of this watch indicated the depth to which it was water-resistant.

Eberhard & Co. now presents a new edition of this model, reinterpreted in a contemporary way.
The new SCAFOGRAF 300 is a mechanical, self-winding diving watch, with aØ 43 mm steel case, an unidirectional rotating bezel in ceramic, with luminescent markings on the first 15 minutes scale, curved sapphire glass and a helium escape valve at 9 o’clock. The “galbé” black dial has luminescent applied indices and the date at 3 o'clock.

The name of the model, the central seconds hand and the dots can be white, light blue or yellow. The hours and minutes hands are also luminescent. Water-resistant to 300 m, the new SCAFOGRAF 300 has a screwed case-back personalised with an engraved starfish. The model comes with an integrated black rubber strap or a Chassis® steel bracelet with deployment clasp Déclic® (Patented).
