The 1950s and especially the 1960s saw the development of scuba diving, with a parallel arrival of tools allowing divers to ensure their safety.
At that time, it was not a computer wrist, but a watch, the first diving watches. Blancpain, Rolex and many other brands have produced their own watches that can safely calculate immersion times…
During those years Eberhard & Co developed their own Scafograf which was then available in several versions: 100m, 200m and even 300m Knowing that the very vast majority of divers do not descend below 60m, there is a margin . At the time, she was also one of the few “divers” to offer a date.
Today, the brand is back again with this bestseller from the ’50s to the ’60s and ’70s in an almost “all black” version. A very limited edition will be produced in only 135 copies to mark the anniversary of Eberhardt’s founding in 2022.
This automatic diver (ETA 28247-2 caliber) is equipped with a black unidirectional (and therefore scratch-resistant) ceramic bezel which allows for calculating dive times as well as timing short times, less than 60 minutes.
Note that this graduated frame lights up for the first 15 minutes. Just like the large hands and pointers they are also coated with cream-colored Superluminova to give this diver a classic look.
The curved matte black dial is protected by a sapphire crystal. Note the lack of the date displayed on other models at the 3 o’clock position. All protected by a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment. This Scafograf with screw crown features a custom starfish (formerly seahorse) engraved starfish screw back case.
This model is mounted on a black rubber strap.
