Eterna Super KonTiki Automatic Chronograph
Brand new and unworn condition Eterna KoniTiki automatic chronograph. It was originally purchased from Ernest Jones in 2005 and comes complete with all boxes and papers. The watch has never been worn or used and as such looks to be in unused condition. The Kon Tiki chronograph has been one of the most popular Eterna of recent years. Recently purchased, around 1 year ago with only the smallest signs of wear. Eterna have been producing high quality watches since their formation in 1856 in Grenchen, Switzerland. They have been responsible for many horological innovations including the 1948 production of the world’s first automatic wristwatch on a ball bearing mounted rotor – a huge technological achievement of the era, and the Eterna logo still today bears, the five ball bearings. Then, there was the world’s very first alarm wristwatch, the smallest self-winding movement, the thinnest quartz wristwatch of all times with a mere 0.98 mm, the smallest quartz movement for ladies’ watches, and on and on. For connoisseurs of Swiss quality timepieces, all these accomplishments transformed the name Eterna into a genuine legend. The explorer, Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific Ocean in a daring and heroic journey in 1947 aboard the raft the KonTiki. Thor and his crew were wearing Eterna watches, and ever since, Eterna have called it's professional sports watches "KonTiki" This watch meets all of the needs of a professional sports watch and is water resistant to 120 metres (400 feet), has a screw in back, and is shock protected.
