Why We Love it

Every man needs a versatile everyday watch in his quiver; one that can be dressed up or down, works like a charm, and gives you all the information you could ever want with a quick glance at the wrist. Of course vintage is always a good way to go...particularly when they look like this!

Eterna is known by collectors for two reasons: Their contribution to the development of the automatic winding movement, and a man named Thor who wore one on his wrist while traversing the Pacific on a hand-made balsa wood raft.  The latter is a story for another time, but their help in developing the modern automatic movement is nothing short of legendary.  Their contribution to the technology was the implementation of five ball bearings used in attaching the rotor to the movement, helping reduce friction and maintain accuracy while being worn and used.  The layout of these bearings, a pentagonal shape, was adopted by the brand as their logo in the 1950s, and remains to this day.  The project name for their early movements?  Eterna-matic!

The range of vintage Eterna-matic timepieces from the 1950s-1980s is about as diverse as one can imagine, with petite, ultra-thin gold dress pieces on one end of the spectrum, and large steel divers on the other. Smack dab in the middle is this guy - an absolutely stunning silver dial Reference 2002 from the 1980s.  The aesthetics of this particular watch are simply brilliant, featuring a fetching linen-textured dial with raised markers, date display and a stylized steel case with TV-style aperture.

This Eterna is also perfectly sized at just over 37mm, making it a good match with jeans and a t-shirt and formal attire alike, and it looks great on a variety of straps.

This is a no-brainer; a simple, easy and daily-wearable vintage watch at a great price. No need to say more!
