    Eterna Super Kontiki repairs

    Dear all

    Please be gentle, as this is my forst post to this forum.

    I have a late 1990's Eterna Super Kontiki (green dial) that I stupidly went climbing with and which now has a few problems (see below). I am trying to find a reliable place to have this repaired in the UK can any one make any suggestions and (possibly) give a ball park cost for the repair and service.

    Problems.
    1. Needs new hands. The luminus stuff fell off both of the hands, watch has been cleaned out, but my repairer cannot find replacements
    2. Bezel spring is broken. Bezel now rotates in both directions with little resistance.
    3. Winding button has come away from the watch. To be fair this was a delayed result of the climbing accident, which damaged the winding clutch. After the best repair that could be made without parts, repeated use has now resulting in a break.

    Many Thanks

    Send Eterna an email or look up their AD in the UK from the website. They'll be able to help.

    It won't come cheap though, from what you described.

    Would do, but cannot find a website for them. My repairer also says there are no agents for eterna in the UK. This is why he cannot get parts.

    www.eterna.ch

    You can find a list of nearby ADs in many parts of France on the website itself. I think the best option is to send the watch back to Eterna for a complete overhaul.

    The 21st century is truly the global age: a UK person, having its Swiss watch repaired in France, after being advised by a person in North America.
