Description

Thank you for looking at this incredible 18k gold watch. Please see 360 degree view for full images.

This watch will make you feel really special when on the wrist! A year or so ago, I stumbled across Eberhard. I had heard of the brand but I didn’t really know them. I mean ‘really’ know them. With my innate desire to walk the path less trodden and do things that not everyone else does, I went on a quest to learn more about this elusive brand. My finding were that within the 'big picture' history of horology, this is a seriously underrated and under-appreciated watch, from an incredible watchmaker. I then wanted to find a perfect watch that included desirability, coolness, rareness, value and wow-factor. My hunt lasted for several months until I found the one.

There are of course two “Eberhards”. Modern and Vintage. Here I believe is the perfect balance between the two. Read on and I will explain...

If you want a solid gold watch, at a very reasonable price, that looks absolutely incredible, then I proudly present this watch to you…. You may go an entire lifetime and not see this watch on another persons wrist. If you seek a watch of the everyman that you see everywhere (like Submariner, Daytona, Datejust, Constallation, Seamaster, Speedmaster) then this is not the watch for you. But if you want a super cool watch that will strike up a long and meaningful conversation with anyone that is interested to listen to your watch story (or any one that is generally interested in watches), then keep reading.

Eberhard & Co is a Swiss luxury watch company, founded in 1887 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchâtel, Switzerland by Swiss watch making industrialist Georges Eberhard.
This is just 48 years after Patek Phillippe and 18 years before Rolex.

Eberhard & Co. watches boast over 130 years of research and passion, where the Swiss brand has been synonymous with excellence and innovation, which are represented in precious timepieces with high technical content that have marked important stages: the pocket chronograph, the first wrist chronograph, right up to dual time watches. 130 years of special passion for an art made up of charm and precision, 130 years of uninterrupted history of taking up new challenges, 130 years of watches with timeless personality.

Eberhard creations stand out for their quality and style and that express the values of great Swiss tradition, as showcased at the 16th Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, the Oscars of Watchmaking – as award winners of the world's most prestigious sports watch prize with their Eberhard & Co, Scafograf 300.
This is Eberhard & Co’s reinterpretation of its own Scafograf collection that was launched in the 1950s - a divers’ watch that appeals strongly to the adventurous and sporty watch collector.

Only a relative handful of collectors are aware of the brand’s rich history and diverse offerings, but now buoyed by this victory for its most historically significant model, Eberhard is making the global watch collecting world sit up and take notice.

Eberhard watches and the brand itself, has always been very popular in Italy, and looking at their watches, you can see why. They manage to be both artistic and classical at the same time. More than anything, they just have great style and are profound in their balance of art and design and mechanics – something the Italians know a thing or two about.

Eberhard chronographs were worn by Italian Royal Navy officers during the pre- and post-World War II years, pioneering the company’s strong presence in the Italian market that remains today.
The culmination of all this advancement was the launch of the Eberhard Extra-fort in the late 1940s. The Extra-fort, which took its moniker from the toughness of its case (fort means “strong” in French), was notable for its sliding push-button that enabled the user to measure intermediate times, a device introduced to the watch industry by Eberhard. The Extra-fort quickly became a leader model for the company throughout the 1950s and influenced the design of all Eberhard chronograph watches that would follow. Among these models was one still prized by collectors today, the Contograf of the 1960s, which included another new and innovative feature, a fast- changing date, in a distinctly shaped trapezoidal window at 6 o’clock, and whose minutes counter was divided into three sectors meant to help its wearer measure the duration of a telephone call.

Today, Eberhard is best known for its unique chronograph, the Chrono 4, which displays all four chronograph counters in a row and its Tazio Nuvolari Collection, which celebrates the famous motor racing legend. Also famed their SCAFOGRAF, CONTOGRAF, TAZIO NUVOLARI, 8 JOURS – check them out.

The company manufactures around 15,000 watches per year and remains one of the few remaining watch brands that is totally independent.

Why you should love this watch:

This is a real unicorn watch. You may go the rest of your life and not see another one of these. That makes it elusive and desirable and because of its prestige; collectable and a worthy investment.

It has a certain elegance and sophistication. It is masculine and attention grabbing – without being overly ostentatious or flashy.

It is a conversation starter.

It is brilliantly sized at 37mm. But on the wrist wears more like a 39mm.

It’s a watch from a powerful and mighty brand, steeped in heritage and experience, yet not a Rolex or Omega or Patek Philippe.

It is a lot of watch for the money. Great looking, 18k gold with a dynamic blue dial that changes in different light (from midnight blue to royal blue) and gold sub dials that really pop and contrast beautifully. You would possibly think this watch to be double its price.

With its Lemania 5100 movement you get the best of many worlds, despite it not being an ‘in-house’ movement. With lower servicing cost, easier servicing availability, a rock solid, no-nonsense movement with its robustness, reliability and resilience used for the likes of military operations, space exploration and motorcar racing cannot be ignored. A bit about Lemania: Lemania was a Swiss watch manufacturer and manufacturer of watch movements. It was founded in 1884 by Alfred Lugrin (1858-1920), who had trained at Jaeger-LeCoultre. Lemania produced movements for Omega, including for the Speedmaster that Buzz Aldrin wore on the moon.
The Lemania 5100 is classic, iconic even, chronograph movement that is well respected in the watch community – up there with the Zenith El Primero, Rolex 4130, A. Lange & Söhne L951.6, Omega Caliber 9300 and TAG Heuer Caliber 1969

This watch is COSC certified (certificate included). The 20% of Swiss watches that achieve COSC certification are among the most expensive watches available, from Rolex to Omega, Tag Heuer, and Breitling, and these are indeed some of the most accurate watches available.

For a 1993 watch it is verging being vintage but still running strong. And being New Old Stock with box and papers, it is a real collectors item and worthy investment in my opinion.

The watch is NOS from 1993. It is not a watch that has been pre-owned and worn as a daily watch, but has been tried on and photographed so whilst not pristine/immaculate, it is certainly 9.7/10 with just a few very light 'trying on' blemish lines. See photos. In reality, on the wrist, they are barely noticeable.

The watch comes with its original box and papers.

Thank you for looking. Please get in touch with any questions. I'd love to hear from you.
