    Eterna Kon Tiki Date, Wow, just Wow!

    Eterna is the biggest unrecognized gem in the watch world. I bought my Kon Tiki Date about 8 months ago.


    What a surprise, comes in a finished wood box, opened it up and my jaw dropped. The watch is absolutely stunning! Fit and finish on the case rivals my Sub, the bracelet and clasp blows away the Datejust II and the Omega Aqua Terra. Dial and markers are impeccable, numerals are rhodium plated and the lume rivals my Seikos. Date window is discreetly positioned, yet easy to read.


    Watch is 42mm wide, 12mm thick and the crystal is sapphire, screw down crown and 200m WR


    The watch is running out of the box at +2 seconds a day.


    The only thing separating this watch from one that would cost you over $5K is the rather pedestrian SW200 movement. It is a Top Grade movement though.
    I paid $1,600 for it from Iguanasell.com they are a recognized AD located in Spain.


    This watch actually killed it for me for the Datejust II and the Aqua Terra

    The quality is probably superior to the Rolex and Omega. Maybe I don't know. But the dial design...

    Yes it is unique, you will either love it, or hate it, but it sure doesn't look like a homage to anything but itself!

    The bracelet Eterna uses is definitely top notch.

    I like the clasp in particular.

    I nearly pulled the trigger on the 24hr version of this watch, I adore the engraving on the caseback.

    I agree but no micro-adjustments on bracelet. I love my Kontiki Four Hands. My problem is that I have never owned a Rolex or Omega or the like (anything above 2k) and even though I have many watches that seemingly parallel them I just itch for one haha. While I strongly prefer the Kontiki over the Aqua Terra I would gladly sell it to fund a Rolex.
