Description

The watch has a signed automatic movement, calibre 1412 UD which was first produced in 1958. The movement is working well.

The watch measures 33.9mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The stainless steel case is in nice condition with only light marking to the back from a previous strap and the screw-on case back is signed inside with the Eterna name.

The lens is in nice condition with only the odd minor mark.

The dial is signed Eterna-Matic and has the five ball bearings Eterna logo.The dial has a nicely aged patina. The bezel under the lens would originally have had minute markers but these have faded over the years.

The watch has its original hands.

The dial has 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.

A new brown leather strap has been fitted.

The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
