Description
The watch has an automatic movement, calibre 1428U, which is working nicely. The watch measures 33mm excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is 9 carat gold and there are hallmarks inside the case back for London 1964 together with the Eterna name. The case is in good condition, just a slight indentation to the back but barely noticeable. The winding crown is a later replacement. The lens is in good condition. The dial is signed Eterna-Matic Centenaire along with the five ball bearings logo. It is in a dark blue finish and there is a chance that the dial has been professionally re-finished at some stage in its life. To the naked eye the dial looks good with just minor marking. If viewed closely, there is marking and wear to the finish on the outer edge of the dial and a couple of small indentations. Dauphine shaped hands and a centre seconds hand (with some marking). In 1948, Eterna introduced their automatic movement which contained five strategically placed ball bearings which made the movement very efficient and significantly reduced friction and resistance on the oscillating weight that wound the mainspring. This reduced the wear and tear on internal parts, increasing the watch’s accuracy and useful life. The watch was probably Eterna’s most famous and it was in fact so successful that Eterna adopted the image of five ball bearings as its corporate logo. A later leather strap has been fitted to this particular watch. The watch will be sent in a new presentation box. All of our watches are checked over before listing and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
