Eberhard Contograf, Chronograph, Steel


In 1887, Georges Eberhard founded the Swiss watch manufacturing company Eberhard & Co. in La Chaux-de-Fonds. In 1919, the company presented its first wrist-chronograph, featuring a hinged-case with articulated lugs, and a chronograph operated with a single button. Eberhard produced a variety of high-quality wristwatches throughout the early-to-mid 1900s, considered some of the most visually-striking and technically brilliant of the period.
