The Eberhard & Co manufacture was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the historic birth place of watch-making industry by George-Emile Eberhard. Eberhard was the son of a prominent Bernese family tracing its origins back to the 10th century which has become instrumental in the development of the Swiss watchmaking industry. His father early initiated him to the art of watch making and Eberhard was only 22 when he founded the company.

1900-1947

In 1907, the company has become one of the largest swiss watch manufacture and inaugurated its new headquarters which takes an entire block at the very center of rue Leopold Robert, La chaux-de-Fonds's main avenue. The Parisian-like five-stories building was designed in distinctive Beaux Arts style with a round tower topped by an impressive eaglescuplture has become one of the city's wellknown landmark and its highest construction until the 1960s. In 1919, Eberhar's sons, George and Maurice took over the company. During the 1930's, the brand designed some of the most modern and innovative watches of the time such as the very first chronograph with self-winding movement in 1930, the first featuring a stop and start again buttons in 1935, the first wrist-watch with counter device in 1938 and the first double timekeeping chronograph of 1939.

1947-1987

After the end of World War II, the manufacture resumed its activities and, in 1947, made its first woman's watch, starting its jewellery collections. The brand continues its innovations: in 1950 it launched the Extra fort(Extra strong) with a single button to start and stop the chronograph, in 1960 it launched devises with simultaneous date setting, in 1968 its chronometers performed 36.000 vibrations per hour, making them among the most precise in the world, in 1980 it is the first Swiss Watch company to re-introduced mechanical chronographs in the market. In 1987, Eberhard & Co celebrates its centenary.

1987 - NOW

Since 1996, the manufacture has decided to focus on luxury king-size wrist watches and launched a newGrande Taille (Super Size) collection. True to its history of technical challenges, Eberhard & Co launched in 1997 the 8 days "a manually winding mechanical watch that needs to be rewound every eight days only" thanks to a special winding device and, in 2001, it launched the Chrono 4 "the first chronograph in the history of watchmaking whose counters are arranged in one row". In 2007, the brand celebrated its 120th anniversary.
