Eberhard & Co. is a brand steeped in precision Swiss watchmaking excellence since 1887. Founded by watchmaker Georges Eberhard in Le Chaux-de-Fonds Switzerland, the brand was first noted for its innovative pocket watches, featuring a patented time-setting system, as well as hours and minutes reading system.
In 1938, Eberhard & Co. introduced the first chronograph watch with an hours counter. The brand followed with the 1959 introduction of the first split-second chronograph, the Extra-Fort Chronograph. The Eberhard & Co. 8-Jours Watch was the first mechanical timepiece with an 8-day power reserve, providing the wearer with the convenience of not having to manually wind the watch for eight full days.
However, Eberhard revolutionized the watch industry in 2001 with the introduction of the Chrono 4 timepiece, the first and only chronograph with its counters arranged in one single horizontal row. In 2005 Eberhard & CO introduced an updated Chrono 4 model with the counters arranged in a vertical row.
