Regular price $0.00 $475.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A STRIKING 1959 ETERNAMATIC WITH ONE OF THE MOST DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS DIALS I'VE WITNESSED.  

 

CASE: SUPER SHARP SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 34mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED ETERNA CROWN BY 41mm LUG TO LUG.  SUCH A SIMPLE AND ELEGANT DESIGN WITH THE ULTRA-THIN BEZEL AND SLIM PROFILE.  BUT, FOR A WATCH OF THIS ERA IT IS QUITE LARGE AND WEARS NICELY DUE TO THAT THIN BEZEL/WIDE DIAL AND THAT LONG LUG TO LUG LENGTH.  THIS CASE HAS CLEARLY NEVER BEEN POLISHED AND ITS FINISH IS ALL ORIGINAL. THERE ARE SOME MINOR HAIRLINES AS SEEN IN THE PICKS, BUT THE FACETS ON THE LUGS ARE EXTREMELY SHARP AND CRISP. YOU GOTTA LOVE THE DRILLED LUGS WHICH MAKES STRAP CHANGES SIMPLE.

 

DIAL: NOW HERE'S WHERE IT GETS REAL GOOD. THIS MIGHT BE ONE OF THE MOST HANDSOME DRESS WATCH DIALS I'VE EVER RUN ACROSS. ITS DESIGN IS SPOT-ON. WITH JUST ITS ONE LINE OF TEXT SET AGAINST THAT GENTLY TONED SILVER CREAM DIAL, IT HAS SUCH A BOLD AND MINIMALIST LOOK TO IT. CHECK OUT THOSE SUPER SUAVE APPLIED BIFURCATED ARROW MARKERS. YOU GOTTA LOVE THE 5 APPLIED BALL BEARING ROTOR ETERNA LOGO AT 12. THOSE LUME PLOTS ARE PERFECTLY PRESERVED AND MATCH THAT ON THOSE SHARP DAUPHINE HANDS. I COULD FIND THE MEANING OF LIFE IN THIS DIAL.

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 17JEWEL IN-HOUSE HIGH GRADE ETERNA AUTOMATIC.  WATCH WAS JUST SERVICED AND IS RUNNING VERY WELL. 

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SUPER SLICK TAPERED HANDMADE BOMBER LEATHER NO-STITCH STRAP MADE BY RUEWATCHES WHICH DEFINITELY BRINGS OUT THE VINTAGE MAGIC ON THIS ONE. I'D SAY THIS WATCH IS EASILY AS NICE AS SOME OF THE PRICIER LONGINES, UNIVERSAL GENEVE AND OMEGA CONTEMPORARIES. THIS IS THE PERFECT DRESS WATCH BUT ALSO WOULD LOOK REALLY COOL WITH SOME JEANS AND A FLANNEL. I LOVE THIS ONE AND SO WILL YOU.
