Case Material

Stainless Steel


Here we have an interesting 1940s Eterna with a jumbo 37mm case, fancy lugs and nicely patinated dial. In the 1940s Eterna were known as one of the more premium watchmakers, producing watches for the military such as the 1945 'Dirty Dozen' watches. This watch is from a similar period and is very well made.


The cal 852 was also the movement of choice for Eterna's 'Majetek' pilots watches made for the Czech Airforce.


The large case has a solid steel case with ornate teardrop lugs and a snap n caseback.


Due to the size of the case and robust movement (large in the 40s and still a nice modern size now), these early Eternas have gained a lot of attention to vintage collectors in recent years.


We have fitted this to a quaity hand made italian leather strap.
