    Eterna - You know, they do exist!

    I ran a search and found a fairly miserable selection of Eterna threads - far to many vintage ones.

    There are some nice pieces in the current line up, but, as fits our age of information saturation, I am leering of jumping into one without knowing more....

    Anyone have any pix or info of new models?

    I have a Monterey quartz from a year or so ago... nice fit and finish. The bracelet is my favorite - as good or better than any I've had the pleasure to wear. Eterna is hard to find outside of the EU. I don't believe there's a North American AD anymore.

    How many watches are in Eterna's current collection? 6? 7? I don't think they make many models.

    EDIT: Heh, I think I got it right:

    I bought the Kontiki this year. It is the nicest watch I have ever seen in person. A true classic design, great lineage, lume that makes the Monster look dim, and a caseback with the Kontiki ship engraved that is really fantastic.

    I had Super Kontiki diver which was certified chronometer. It was a great watch but at 39mm was too small for my taste. I ended up trading it which I regret... The bracelet was the smoothest one ever.....

    Is there an internal, or indeed external, hierarchy of the brand with Porsche Design?
