    Eterna Civilian with military features

    Hello to all,
    this happens to be the first Eterna wristwatch to come in to my collection. I was looking for something more ambitious(military) but suddenly saw this good looking "Birks".
    I'm still waiting for it to come on the mail but at first glance looks pretty good and clean. Of course, some polishing on case but with a great dial(reminding the WWW) and very clean movement(Eterna 520) wich is the first gents wristwatch issued by Eterna, according to Ranfft.
    Looking forward to your thoughts.
    PS - The black hands against the black dial looked odd to me but after a quick research found out thats not unusualName:  front.JPG

    In case you may not know 'BIRKS' is a very famous Canadian Jeweler - This watch would have been sold by them. so termed 'private label'
    You can read a lot on BIRKS
