Eberhard Scientigraf - A Rare Antimagnetic Watch
The Rolex Milgauss, the OMEGA Railmaster, the IWC Ingenieur … and the Scientigraf?
As the name would imply, this watch was designed for Scientists - of the nuclear variety - and was highly resistant to magnetic forces measured in gauss. As anybody who has worn a mechanical watch in the modern era of cellphones can tell you - magnetism is the enemy of accurate timekeeping. So how do Nuclear Scientists a la Doc Brown factor into this equation? Well, during the post WWII years - there was a massive rise in nuclear studies for energy and arms and scientists who relied on their precision instrument watches needed a more anti-magnetic watch to resist the day-to-day exposure to these highly magnetic forces
Those watches listed above all answered that call - but the Scientigraf is the rarest example of those 1960s anti-magnetic efforts. Extremely large, highly legible, and with a stunning Cathedral lumed hour hand its no wonder this model is so sought after by collectors. Much like other icons of the era though, very few of these of survived as they actually saw real use in the field and certainly not many survived in the condition of the present example which looks to be almost new.
Now is your chance to grab one of the coolest and rarest watches from this era in watchmaking - and we can almost guarantee that nobody will ever have the same watch as you on in the room!
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
