    Eberhard Contograf - would love to see more ?

    Surprisingly enough there isn't a single thread or even a picture I could find here about the Contograf, so I thought it deserves it's own thread, hoping other owners will chime in over time ?

    In 1950 Eberhard launched their exclusive (we'd now call it "inhouse") cal. 310/8, designed and manufactured by Dubois-Depraz, to be used in their Extra-Fort chronographs. That (outstandingly beautiful, I think) caliber was the basis for what seems to be the first "simple date" chronograph movement, the cal. 310/82, launched in 1958.

    The 310/82 was first used in the Contodat chronograph models, then in what I consider one of the most attractive "Aviator" chronographs with a rotating 12h-bezel, the mid 1960s Contograf.

    Cases were manufactured by Huguenin Freres; massive & lovely, but quite sanely sized at 39mm - and that date quick set button makes me miss that function on all my other date chronographs ;)

    The 310/82 was used for the Doxa Sub T-Graph too btw, during a short period both companies were merged into CHP holding.

    Enough blah; here are the pictures - and I hope more Contograf aficionados will chime in !

    Really beautiful piece, Fred. That quick-set date button is a really desirable feature.

    with pleasure; case size is precisely the same as the early 2446/3646, but build quality is superior.

    The Red line near '50', is it on the crystal or on the dial?

    Why highlight 50mph and 45 seconds? Something to do with racing?

    if it's obvious forgive my ignorance.

    45 minutes ... might be football/soccer
    50 km/h was (and is) the speed limit in most Europan cities.

    Wow! Eberhard is a brand I love, and this watch is stunning!
    I don't know, but I think that in this period people is quite underestimating this house. What do you think guys?
