Eberhard & Co. Scafograf 300 MCMLIX Edition with Matt Blue Dial

After last year’s success with the “MCMLIX” celebration edition, the SCAFOGRAF 300 collection now welcomes a new version boasting a blue colour scheme.

Eberhard & Co. created the first SCAFOGRAF in 1959, with the aim of meeting the growing demand for diving watches. This model became one of the La Chaux-de-Fonds Maison’s greatest successes. It has been counted as one of the most coveted diving timepieces.

After the launch of the first two models (water resistant down to 100 and 200 metres respectively), the SCAFOGRAF 300 version and its evolutions followed, managing to create a timepiece able to withstand a depth of 1000 metres.

In 2016, driven forward by its desire for constant research and innovation, Eberhard & co. designed a re-issue of the SCAFOGRAF 300, a modern re-elaboration which, that very year, went on to win the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

The SCAFOGRAF 300 “MCMLIX” edition, a diving watch, with the name itself, through the transcription in Roman numerals, evokes the year of its original launch, and boasting a galbe dial in blue, Eberhard & Co.’s signature colour, with matt finish and indexes and hands featuring a ‘vintage’ luminescence. The self-winding mechanical movement is housed within a 43 mm diameter steel case, with convex sapphire crystal and automatic helium escape valve at 9 o’clock.

The unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, also in blue, has ‘vintage’ luminescence on the first quarter of the minute scale. The screw back is decorated with a starfish, the emblem of the collection. The water-repellent leather strap enhances the casual-chic look of the watch and features blue stitching, similarly evoking the rich blue tone of the dial.
