i know, you guys are going to get sick of my one-note song here, but...
and i really shouldn't keep pointing out how undervalued and well made these are, but...
here's my latest. 'buy it now' for $60. dial is rough, case needs a polishing, but still has some charm:
i like the shape of this case. beefy, but not huge at 34mm.
but here's the best part. the seller's pics weren't great, but i could tell it was an adjusted movement. eterna wasn't big on overstatement, so there tends to be very little writing on the plates. but when i popped the hood i got a nice surprise;
they didn't produce a lot of movements with micro-regulation. all the examples i have seen that had it were labeled 'chronometer' on the dial. i believe this dial is original- and in terrible shape- so this wasn't marked a chronometer, but it still one their better movements.
again, i really shouldn't urge my fellow collectors to seek out these watches. that will leave fewer good bargains for me. but really, the quality here rivals the best mass produced watches of their day. i think anyone who picks one of these up will be very happy with it.
