    Someone mention Eterna?

    No,well that's ok, I saw this one online and liked its vintage look, although it's a 2007 dated watch.

    Hm - just wonder why they had to copy a Zodiac Seawolf. Had Eterna no indigenous model to go by?

    Can't blame Eterna for copying this style, it's a classic and extremely ggood looking.

    What came firsts... the Seawolf or Kon tiki.....

    As this is an Anniversary watch by Eterna... I think they just copied their 1958 design!
