Today, we got the opportunity to meet with Eterna at Baselworld 2017 and it was noteworthy. How amazing? We should simply say that out of the four of us who went to the conversation (in addition to a fifth who didn’t join in), us all arranged a watch – a similar watch. The Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture was so compelling, so moderate and nailed quite a few subtleties. How about we investigate why.
Eterna reported another KonTiki Diver line this year (we’ll come back before long with detail on these incredible looking and reasonable jumpers) and decided to commemorate the declaration and the 70th commemoration of the KonTiki campaign by making a restricted release Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture plunge watch. Restricted to 300 pieces, the watch will be accessible beginning in September. It comes in at 44mm (wears a lot more modest so that even I can wear it) and highlights a case made of bronze (copper and tin), yet utilizes an amalgam without aluminum. This composite should make it more impervious to turning green like such countless bronze watches do after such brief period. Water opposition is predictable with the other KonTiki’s at 200M and, fortunately, there’s no helium valve.
When we include the normal KonTiki jumpers in an upcoming article, you’ll see that the watches highlight a date haggle Selitta development. Not so with the Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture. It contains an in-house 3902A programmed that beats at 28,800 bph and contains a force hold of 65 hours. As referenced, there’s no date, which keeps the dial totally spotless and clear. About that dial – it has a brilliant completion that Eterna calls dark matte, however it has much more surface unpleasantness to it face to face. Add that to bronze shaded hands with lists encompassed by the pinkish metal and you have a shocker. Also, the uni-directional artistic bezel contains Super-LumiNova numerals and, in what is genuinely a valuable instrument for sporting jumpers, a US Navy “no decompression” bezel. It gives a very surprising stylish to the watch and separates it versus so numerous other divers.
The crown is monstrous and will likewise be strong bronze (it was PVD covered here) and was exceptionally material to utilize. Lash insightful, there’s a beautiful waterproof, tack-sewed earthy colored cowhide tie in 22mm with a bronze pin clasp that has the Eterna logo. Caseback-wise, the watch will flaunt the production development. We were all beside the point on this component, as the typical line will get a pleasantly engraved image of the first boat utilized by Thor Heyerdahl. We’re told the bundling will be something like a Pelican case with bronze fittings – I can hardly wait to see it.
Convincingly, the Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture is evaluated at 2,990 Euros. For a jumper with an in-house development that totally checks all the cases, it was basically excessively useful for our group to overlook. Along these lines, we as a whole arranged pieces on the spot and determined the release numbers that had significance to us. Expressly speaking, I work with copper widely in my normal everyday employment and I’ve for some time been looking for the correct watch to buy to go about as a keepsake to my workday exercises. The Oris Carl Brashear persuaded me, however I stood by too long and the watch was sold out. From numerous points of view, I’m happy I wavered in light of the fact that the Eterna leaves nothing wanting.
On the wrist, the Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture looks incredible. At 44mm, it’s not little, but rather it embraces the wrist with its bended carries. Furthermore, against my moderately tan skin, the combination of the pinkish brushed metal combined with the bothered tie is truly fitting. No, this is certainly not a dress watch, however it seems like something I’ll wear a great deal when I’m taken off socially. I likewise preferred how the bezel and dial aren’t distinct dark as the entire watch simply streams much better compared to in the event that one angle looks excessively “sharp”. A magnificent occupation by Eterna. All things considered, when you persuade a whole group to put down their cash in the wake of seeing a great deal of watches, you’ve done well.
