Eberhard Chronograph from WWII Auctioned for 56,000€ Written byWatchTimeJune 6, 2012 The “Sistema Magini”, later called the “Metodo Magini” by Eberhard & Co., was auction for 56,000€ at the Meeting Art Auction House to an unknown buyer. This 24-hour split-second chronograph is said to have flown from Rome to Tokyo and back in 1942, during World War II. As stated in an Eberhard document dated 1943, an order was confirmed by the Italian Air force for 10 standard and 10 split-second chronographs with the Magini wording on the dial, but then the War ended and they were not realized, making this the only model. The “Sistema Magini”, later called the “Metodo Magini” by Eberhard & Co.
