    New old Eterna find!

    Just wanted to share. I went to visit my watchmakers today, just to say hi and see what's happening. On my last stop I found this ~1960 Eterna chronometer in the display case. It looked lonely. I have a soft spot for lonely-looking watches. I'm practically helpless when it comes to lonely-looking Eternas. I'm so weak. Now it has a new home with my KonTiki and Centenaire.



    Powered by an Eterna 1420U movement. sparkling clean (despite my pics) and running strong. Everything looks original. A nice even patina on the dial (again, despite my lousy pics), gold cap/ss case in great condition. A quick buff of the crystal, wipe clean the case, install a nicer strap, and .

    Oh yeah. I paid $80.

    Wow, great watch Sherry! You don't see them marked with "chronometer" very often. The hidden crown and indices are cool too. So you provide homes for stray watches and cats, do you?

    Apparently. Cats seems to find me, and I seems to find watches when I'm not even looking. Clearly. I have "sucker" tattooed on my forehead that only cats and watchmakers can see.
