Eterna Watches, a renowned Swiss watch manufacturer, traces its origins back to 1856 when it was founded by Dr. Joseph Girard and Urs Schild in Grenchen, Switzerland. Initially named "Schild Frères," the company specialized in producing pocket watches before transitioning to wristwatches. Eterna made significant contributions to watchmaking technology; most notably, in 1948, it introduced the Eterna-Matic automatic movement featuring a rotor system with five ball bearings to minimize friction - a symbol still represented in its logo today.

Over the years, Eterna has been synonymous with innovation and craftsmanship, pioneering advancements while maintaining its commitment to the Swiss watchmaking tradition.

What's on Offer

If you appreciate the beauty of a tropical dial then this beautiful Eterna chronometer might be right up your street! The dial has aged to a beautiful deep ivory colour with a very even patina. There are applied hour markers and beautiful Dauphine hands. There is also a central seconds hand in blood-red. The dial is completed with the Eterna signature and ball-bearing emblem.  The dial is encapsulated underneath a shatterproof acrylic crystal and encased in stainless steel which has been very well preserved. The case number is engraved on the caseback and reads 3965098. The watch is paired with a classic brown leather strap and is sold with its original box which is rather rare! It wears beautifully on the wrist, is understated but stylish and at 35mm is subtle enough to wear for any occasion from everyday to formal attire.
