Very well presented review. Looks like a great watch - very stylish and the clasp/bracelet look extremely sturdy:-!
Peter (Gunscrossed) is where my trade came from, so that is an earlier pic of the same watch ;-)haakon59 said:Nice photo of the old Eterna KonTiki IDF model, gunscrossed. You must have had that one for awhile, looks like a 60's era watch. I like the current version of the Kontiki also, which you obviously already have. Thanks for the photo.
Well, "officially" it's not a dive watch as all the official standards I'm aware require a minimum 200M depth rating.Hi André:
OK!! Thanks. Now officially a dive watch. I think it's a great watch too.
But I still need the technical details about this watch.
Hi XTrooper:Well, "officially" it's not a dive watch as all the official standards I'm aware require a minimum 200M depth rating.
That said, this technicality certainly wouldn't stop me from buying this beautiful and capable dive chrono. b-)
Colin,Another "not a dive watch" then:
I'm with you! I'd buy a Super KonTiki reissue in a heartbeat! |>It seems to me that Eterna would be able to sell tons of divers if they simply put out a watch that was, in essence, a reissue of the classic Super KonTiki that rajenmaniar posted (excellent watch, by the way). Put it out in 42mm and 14mm thick - man, I would buy several just to keep them for years to come.
I have to agree as well! I ended up trading/selling the KonTiki because ultimately it didn't 'sing' to me enough. I'd buy another Eterna in a heartbeat, because the quality of construction is just superb. I've thought about trying to track down an earlier Super KonTiki as a replacement for it, but haven't bitten the bullet as yet. (The 1958 4-hand looks rather nice as well, actually!)I'm with you! I'd buy a Super KonTiki reissue in a heartbeat! |>
