Beautiful Vintage Eterna-Matic Kontitki 20 Dating to 1968 with Lovely Blue Dial

Eterna Watches, a renowned Swiss luxury watch brand, has a fascinating history that spans over 160 years. Founded in 1856 by Urs Schild and Joseph Girard, the company initially began as a small watchmaking workshop in Grenchen, Switzerland. Throughout the years, Eterna Watches became known for its innovative designs and exceptional craftsmanship. In 1905, the brand introduced one of its most significant inventions - the revolutionary EternaMatic movement. This self-winding mechanism set new standards in precision and reliability and became an industry benchmark. Eterna continued to thrive over the decades, captivating watch enthusiasts with its exceptional timepieces.

The Eterna-Matic Kontiki was named after the famous 1947 journey across the Pacific Ocean by Raft from South America to the Polynesian Islands led by the Norwegian writer and explorer Thor Heyerdahl. The raft in question was named the Kontiki after the Inca god Viracocha.

What's on offer

This lovely blue dial makes this Eterna-Matic Kontiki pop with colour. Dating to 1968, the condition of this watch is unbelievable. The stainless steel case boasts its factory shine with only light blemishes present on the underside and side profile of the watch. The dial presents itself in a new-like condition in a dazzling blue tying in nicely with the chrome hour markers and baton hands. 

Internally you can find the ETA base calibre 1489k movement with 17 jewels and a lengthy power reserve of 49 hours.

Paired with a blue leather strap which contrasts excellently with the blue dial, this watch is an excellent everyday wear but also has the capabilities of a classy dress watch and would be a great addition to anyone's collection.
