Eberhard & Co. Scafograf 300 lands a big prize

Eberhard & Co. Scafograf 300

The Scafograf by Eberhard & Co. dates back to the 1950s. The latest version of this classic model is called Scafograf 300 and was able to reel in the prize for best sports watch at the 2016 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

The steel 42.5mm watch is equipped with all the basic facilities like a strong sapphire crystal, a unidirectional bezel, a helium valve, the black ‘galbé’ dial with luminescent, applied markers on which the model name can be added if required, the central seconds hand and the dots in white, pale blue or yellow. Since its conception some 60 years ago the Scafograf has had variants that were water resistant to depths of as much as 1,000m. However, 300m was deep enough for the latest variant to get an important diploma.
