Brand: Eterna Watch Co.

Model: Eterna-Matic KonTiki ref. 130T Automatic (rare no-date model); Swiss Made circa late 1963

Case: Solid stainless steel case with screw-down back is approximately 34mm excluding the original Eterna signed winding crown

Bracelet: Original 18mm vintage Gay Frères (GF) five-row stainless steel linked bracelet with signed "KonTiki" fold-over clasp (stamped 2-64); full length including two extra links

Movement: Eterna cal. 1412UD self-winding automatic movement with center sweeping-seconds hands and no date; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original Swiss-only silver sunburst dial with applied Eterna logo and "stick" hour markers; original luminous hands with nice yellow patina; sharp stainless steel case with cool Eterna gold medallion on the caseback; original domed acrylic crystal with Eterna logo etched in the center; original Gay Frères bracelet; high-grade Eterna in-house movement; rare no-date model

Condition: Very nice original condition overall with honest wear consistent with age and light use; sharp stainless steel case appears to be unpolished with sharp edges and bevels throughout; crisp caseback with unique Eterna gold medallion and serial number clearly legible; gorgeous original silver sunburst dial with all lume plots present and aged to an attractive yellow hue; original hands with all luminous material in tact and matching; nice original domed acrylic crystal with Eterna logo etched in the center

Other: This rare Eterna-Matic KonTiki packs a lot of desirable features into an attractive and unassuming watch that can be dressed up or down. The beautiful Swiss-only dial has a silver sunburst finish that glistens out in the sun - Check out the matching yellow patina to the lume plots and hands! We love the two offset lume plots at 12 o'clock, a subtle detail that is seldom seen on vintage watches. This particular example comes in a sharp stainless steel case with its original Gay Frères bracelet (which is quite valuable and desirable on its own). The original winding crown is signed. Even the domed acrylic crystal has the Eterna logo etched in the center. With an in-house movement and gold medallion on the caseback, this is a high-grade watch that was ahead of its time - Perfect for the gentleman that's looking for something different than the common Rolex Datejust seen in every boardroom.
