With a precocious talent, at only age 22, Geroges Eberhard founded Manufacture d’Horlogerie Eberhard & Co, in the Swiss city of La Chaux-de-Fonds. It was 1887 and as early as 1889 the brand launched its first pocket chronograph watch, featuring an innovative and patented time-setting system.
In 1919, Eberhard came out with the first wrist stopwatch, a stunning success. It was worn by the officials of the Regia Marina Militare Italiana and of the Frecce Tricolori, in a special collection dedicated to the famous pilot Tazio Nuvolari. It was followed by the Chrono 4 which pioneered stop-watch readings in the new millenium.
Over a century of history. Forever striving towards innovation and evolution.
