Description
The watch has a 1412U automatic movement which is working nicely. The movement is fully signed and it has the serial number 4,166,737, which dates it back to 1957. This particular calibre was in production from 1953 until 1958. The watch measures 34.5mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is stainless steel and overall the condition is good. There is a 1cm scratch to the screw-on case back, and general surface marks but nothing too serious at all. Eterna winding crown 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 lens is in good condition. The signed dial has been re-finished at some stage. Original hands, seconds sweep and outer minute markers. A new leather strap has been fitted. The watch comes 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 to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
