Here we have this new Eterna, with a very interesting story!
From the middle of the 19th century on, Eterna watches regularly found themselves at the heart of pivotal events. Such was the case in 1939, for instance, when the Czechoslovak authorities called on Eterna. The country's military pilots urgently needed a wristwatch made to precise specifications.
Eterna was happy to oblige, soon supplying a design that today still attracts steady interest. So much so, in fact, that the company has just reissued it under the "Military" name in the Heritage collection, in a pair of subtly improved designs that nonetheless successfully capture the piece's original spirit.
The first of the two designs is practically similar to the 1939 original: a brushed and polished steel case framing a black dial. Like the initial model, hands and figures are coated in a green luminous compound.
Today's case, however, measures 40 mm across, in keeping with current preferences. Only a date window at 6 o'clock and a black leather strap differ from the original Czech model. As for the second design, its case is clad in black PVD and features a brown leather strap.
Thank you very much for following us!
Have a nice day!
