Divers must constantly monitor their remaining air in relation to the ascent time, taking the specified decompression phases into account to ensure maximum safety. Eterna therefore felt the need to make a suitable chronometric contribution to relieve this stress in creating the first Super KonTiki in 1962. It benefits from an optimal legibility of the time even under dim light, an extremely reliable automatic movement, a rotating bezel with handy knurling and a sturdy steel case resistant up to 20 atmospheres. The Super KonTiki from 1973 is the heir of this first piece. Various navy troops have seen in this watch a first choice instrument. Therefore, several armies have been the first to be equipped with the Super KonTiki in the years 1960s and 1970s.
