In this thread I would like to explain you why we decided to use exclusively an ETERNA movements in our Biatec Watches. There are several main reasons:
1, I don't know why but I have never been a big fan of Japanese movements like Seiko, Miyota or others. Though I know that some are really great without any doubt.
2, I wanted to be a bit "different" from other watch manufacturers since they are mostly using ETA or Miyota movements in their watches.
3, As we all know, long time ago the ETA has declared a supply restrictions of their movements outside the Swatch Group. Therefore I do not think it would be a smart to establish a new watch brand on the supplier who cannot quarantee secure supplies of watch movements now and also for the future.
4, And last but not least is the fact that the Eterna offers briliant modular solution of its revolutionary Caliber 39xx.
Eterna engineers invented Caliber 39 family, from which over 88 different movement versions can be produced.
Base caliber 39 has a kind of "basic module" to which you can add various attachment modules and modify it respectively enriched it with the new features/complications.
Basic modul looks like this:
Just add the missing plate/module and you will get a standard hand wound movement.
Add another module instead and get an automatic movement.
Or add a chronograph module and you will get the beautiful chronograph movement.
As you can see, there are almost countless possibilities. 88 at the moment and new are coming. So I like that we can have one watchcase and to use a different movements inside without any big modifications.
Did you know? Eterna has a history of over 150 years and it is also responsible for giving rise to the ETA company!
I trust you will be in line with our decision to use Eterna movements for our watches. I will be glad if you will let me know your thoughts.
