    Question Need help ID'ing Eterna-matic

    I just picked up a fine looking Eterna-matic while in NYC, and would appriciate some help finding out more about it, as in how old it is, model / type, etc.

    The watch been serviced, and has been running great so far. Movement looks to be in good shape, and the dial is in very good condition. Hard to say if it has been re-dialed or not. There is no sign any re-luming anywhere. The crystal, which I think is plexi, has hardly any scratches with leads me to beleive that it has been replaced.

    Its a no-date, the case back is numbered 3993309 while the movement is numbered 4191275.

    Some pictures:









    Would appriciate any suggestions, input or comments!

    Hi.

    Afaik there isn't an Eterna serial number list online. But if you email them [email protected] with the details he'll look it up for you.

    Nice find.

    Not entirely true.....

    This German site has a serial number list... not easy to find!

    Schild-Eterna

    on the left in the grey column, there is a title - Für Uhrmacher - click on it!

    scroll down to the bottom of this page and you will find a blue bar, titled: Seriennummern von 1900 bis 1974 - click on this and there will be a drop down menu with movement serial numbers/dates to be used as a guide!

    Dates the movement to 1957/58 ish.

    Still best to contact Eterna direct.

    Dial looks original to me... movements normally have a cal number under the balance?

    Congrats... nice watch!

    As for the movement,

    would guess something from the 14XX range - something like this: 1414
