    Did Eterna make a non-military issue Super Kontiki 633.1018.41 ?

    As title states:

    Did Eterna ever make a 633.1018.41 without military engravings?
    I see quite a lot of these pop-up without the mention off an IDF or Icelandic military engraving. I always thought the model was reserved for military issue and a civilian issue is fake.

    Now I wonder if you are going to fake it; why not add the IDF engraving for the extra cash? Why leave it blank like that?



    Cheers

    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    The member 'Clayman' mentions he once owned the watch in question, and it had no military markings when it was in his posession, and 'JoeK' answered that 'IDF markings are being added to civilian Eternas'.
    That makes two very knowledgeable members on MWR mention a civvy type model, with no-one saying 'nay', as would be expected if that were so.

    Also the member 'Nalu' posts photos of the alleged fake markings, with the Kon-Tiki raft image worn almost smooth, and the fresh engravings are actually done on the opposite sides as in other images of genuine IDF models, as the model serial numbers should be underthe raft not above it.
    That is more evidence of blank case backs for this model.

    Aha. They do seem VERY rare though? I have almost never seen a civ issue...
