The Rake Vintage

Eterna Field Watch, Circa 1950s

$ 1,100
  • Product Notes

    Eterna is one of the many storied names in Swiss watchmaking that deserves more attention in modern times. Founded in 1856, the ebauche maker gradually gathered steam in the twentieth century, patenting the first alarm wristwatch and later making waves with the innovative ‘Eterna-matic’ automatic movement in 1948. Around that time they became a household name thanks to the Thor Heyerdahl’s Kon-Tiki expedition. This epic Pacific trip saw the crew wear watches from Eterna, which named a collection after the famous voyage.

    The dial of this sporty little Eterna has faded to a glorious creamy eggshell hue over the decades, and the once bold black Arabic numerals have aged with equal dignity. This age, compared with the very strong condition of the case, with crisp lugs and oversized crown, makes for a pleasing combination.
