Dubai, UAE, August 10, 2017:  For the presentation of one of its latest creations, Eberhard & Co. takes a walk down its memory lane. It was the 1950s when the Swiss watchmaker, always inclined towards technical research and innovation, decided to take on a challenge that has, from time immemorial, always fascinated men – the sea and its mysterious depths. The sea, the stuff of feats and legends; an infinite horizon, a submerged world that is yet to be fully explored, but whose surface is closely bound to the life of man.
 
These were the years in which one of Hemingway's greatest works was published – “The old man and the sea” - which dealt with subjects such as courage and man's tenacity in the face of nature – the vast blue expanse, to be exact - and his merging with it.
 
These were the years in which Eberhard & Co. presented its Scafograf collection, designed to be worn by the adventurous and sporty with a dynamic spirit and love of life. Enriched over the years, the collection was made up of steel models which were water-resistant to 100, 200, 300, 400, 750 or 1000 metres, with or without a rotating bezel and luminescent hour markers.
 
The SCAFOGRAF 300 incorporated all the main features required of a dive watch: automatic with a sturdy, shockresistant steel case (Ø 42.5 mm), a graduated black bezel to control elapsed dive time, a high-contrast dial with luminescent hands and markers and a stainless steel expandable bracelet; everything that intrepid divers and water-sports aficionados would need in the enthralling depths. The date at 3 o'clock - unusual for a dive watch - and the look of this model made it agreeablysuitable for every day wear. 
 
The 300 in the name of this watch indicated the depth to which it was water-resistant.
 
Eberhard & Co. now presents a new edition of this model, reinterpreted in a contemporary way.
 
The new SCAFOGRAF 300 is a mechanical, self-winding diving watch, with a Ø 43 mm steel case, an unidirectional rotating bezel in ceramic, with luminescent markings on the first 15 minutes scale, curved sapphire glass and a helium escape valve at 9 o'clock. The “galbé” black dial has luminescent applied indices and the date at 3 o'clock. The name of the model, the central seconds hand and the dots can be white, light blue or yellow. The hours and minutes hands are also luminescent. Water-resistant to 300 m, the new SCAFOGRAF 300 has a screwed case-back personalised with an engraved starfish. The model comes with an integrated black rubber strap or a Chassis® steel bracelet with deployment clasp Déclic® (Patented). The clean and precise lines of the SCAFOGRAF 300 are also well suited to a more casual-chic use out of the water.
