t was in the 1950s when Eberhard & Co. decided to take on a challenge that has, from time immemorial, always fascinated men – the sea and its mysterious depths.
These were the years in which the Swiss watchmaker presented its Scafograf collection. The 300 in the name of the watch suggested the depth to which it was water-resistant. The collection, which was enriched over the years, was made up of steel models that were actually water-resistant to 100, 200, 300, 400, 750 or 1000 metres.
The Scafograf 300 incorporated all the main features required of a dive watch: automatic winding, a sturdy, shock-resistant steel case (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.
The new Scafograf 300 is a mechanical self-winding diving watch with a 43 mm steel case, a 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 clean and precise lines of the watch are also well suited to a more casual-chic use out of the water.
