In 1887 Georges Eberhard founded the Swiss watch manufacturing company Eberhard & Co. in La Chaux-de-Fonds. In 1919, the company presented its first wrist-chronograph and a chronograph operated with a single button. Eberhard produced a variety of high-quality wristwatches throughout the early-to-mid 1900s in addition to retailing watches in Milan for Patek Philippe and other prestigious watchmakers.
