1970s Eberhard & Co Valjoux 72 chronograph
Eberhard & Co, a renowned Swiss watchmaker founded in 1887 by Georges Eberhard, revolutionized timepieces with innovations like the 8 Jours wristwatch and Chrono 4. Reknown for their exceptional craftsmanship and mechanical mastery, the brand blends tradition with modern innovation. Their prestigious legacy continues as they create remarkable watches that maintain their esteemed reputation in the horological world.
What we love about this chronograph from the 70s are :
– Produced in low quantities
– Amazingly well preserved
– Animated by the Valjoux 72 mouvement
In terms of design, the watch is enhanced by all the 70’s look with its nice cushion brushed steel case. Its clean and very readable dial shows nice vanilla-patinated tritium, perfectly paired with baton hands. The watch comes on a generic, but period-correct, stainless steel bracelet and will be the perfect summer not-like-everyone-else chronograph.
