    Complimenting Eberhard Vintage & Modern Watches...

    In my informal vintage collecting, I have found Eberhard, established in 1887 in La-Chaux-de-Fonds to have produced some very interesting watches.

    Even though I don't have them all to take a family picture, as two are still in California at my Sister's (I'll pick them up in August) and one is at the Watchmaker being serviced, I picked up a more modern 'sibling' yesterday to go with my other 4 Eberhards, 3 of which are vintage - so I'm slightly 'cheating' here but of course there isn't a 'Misc Brand' forum as far as I know to post - and sometimes isn't it worthwhile to compliment vintage watches and their successors ??

    So here are the 3 vintage Eberhards, a 40s steel chronograph, a 40s 18ct gold Extra Fort chronograph, a late 50s 18ct gold 'bumper' automatic and my newest, a White Ltd Ed Moonphase chrono with it's sibling, a Black Champion Chrono - very nice, high quality watches for 'good' prices - IMHO, cheers, Scott

    Complimenting Eberhard Vintage & Modern Watches...

    Matt - yeah ! I thought about referencing yours in the thread because it's a little earlier, 'classic' Eberhard style I haven't found yet, plus it's a black dial (!) because I have been focused on the 40s/50s chronos - of course the bumper is a fairly dressy watch.

    Okay now everyone needs to post their Eberhards !!

    I need to keep my eyes out for one more like yours ! Cheers, Scott

    Also even though they are round, your lugs are similar in style to the first steel chrono...

    Laikrodukas - thanks - I know it's not vintage... But it was issued as a limited edition to celebrate 100 years for Eberhard - 1887-1987.

    But for some reason there was also only one other bidder so I got it for 30% of the other prices I have seen for this watch.... In the first 24 hours, it's off 2 seconds....Scott

    You heard the man let's see 'em.

    Mine was one of those chance finds, I'd looked in the sellers watch case twice and he'd just put this one out after selling some when I walked by for the final time, I'll keep my eyes peeled for you.

    'L' - let me slightly clarify - there were 3 total but one one bidder went slightly above the offer price - only one was competing against me in the last 10 seconds but was 'short' of my max bid. That's one of the reasons I don't like waiting completely to the end of an auction because it doesn't give someone more leeway to 'probe' others max bids, leaving time to respond if you want...
