    Eterna-Matic

    Hello All,

    I picked this Eterna-Matic up at a garage sale and would like to know more about the brand. The watch is in need of a touch up and it runs a little then stops. I'm trying to identify when it was from and the model. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Jeff

    Probably a 1960s model and obviously needs service. Eterna got started in 1851 as U. Schild. Eterna (name changed in 1905) was the consumer branch and ETA the movement maker after 1932.

    I'd go a bit earlier and guess that the watch is from around 1955. Opening the watch and getting the caliber number & serial number from the movement would help.

    As Ray says, the watch is in need of service/repair.

    That would place the watch at about 1956.
