Description
The watch has an automatic movement, calibre 1478K, which is working nicely. The movement is signed with the Eterna-Matic name and it also has the serial number 5,589,399 which dates it back to 1968. The watch measures 31mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is gold plated with the thicker 20 microns of plate and it has a stainless steel screw-on case back which is signed Eterna inside. The case is in lovely condition and the winding crown has the five ball bearings logo. The lens is in good condition. The signed dial is in its original finish with original hands, centre seconds and outer minute markers. There is some light discolouration in places. The watch has its original Eterna black leather strap with Eterna buckle, again with the five ball bearings logo. 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. 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.
