The new SCAFOGRAF 300 “MCMLIX” Edition watch celebrates the 60th anniversary of the iconic Eberhard & Co. SCAFOGRAF diving watch collection.
Launched in 1959 to meet increasing demand for reliable diving watches, the SCAFOGRAF collection has been one of the biggest success stories of Eberhard & Co. The technical characteristics of the watches made them one of the most coveted instruments for diving enthusiasts.
The first two models, water resistant to 100 and 200 metres respectively, immediately climbed to the apex of the market, encouraging Eberhard & Co. to take on new challenges. The result was the Scafograf 300 (a version for professional divers), and its subsequent evolutions which could resist depths of up to 1000 metres.
In 2016, Eberhard & Co. returned with the re-edition of the SCAFOGRAF 300, a diving watch that exceeded all expectations in terms of awards. In fact, that same year, it received the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, the most prestigious recognition in the haute horlogerie sector.
The SCAFOGRAF 300 is an automatic-winding mechanical diving watch with a 43 mm Ø steel case, unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, curved sapphire glass and valve enabling the release of helium at 9 o’clock.
A celebratory edition called “MCMLIX”, in Roman numerals the year of the collection’s birth, will be available this summer. The all-black dial and ceramic bezel are animated by hands and markers with “vintage” luminescence.
The caseback is decorated with the symbol of the collection, a star fish, while the black rubber strap is integrated and features small reliefs in the shape of the House “shield” on the inside to improve breathability. The numerals “MCMLIX” are imprinted on the dial, as a tribute to a very significant step in Eberhard & Co.’s history.
