PRICE: $835 (including PP fee and free US shipping)

MSRP: $2800.00 On Jan-15-2015, due to Swiss Central bank's policy change, Swiss Franc appreciated value by 30% against Euro and USD, so expect all the major watch manufacturers (including Eterna) to dramatically increase the list price very soon!

Watch Description (see high-resolution pictures below)This Swiss Made Eterna Kontiki Automatic Date Watch with Brown Alligator Strap is in Brand New Condition. It will come with all the boxes, hanging tag, and open warranty paper. As an avid watch collectors, I am handling all kinds of watch ranging from mid to ultra-high end, in my opinion, if you are in the market for a high quality Swiss Made Automatic 3-hands watch with highest craftsmanship, I dare to say this watch is offering you the highest value/price ratio in the current watch market, period. The equivalent quality watch such as Omega, Zenith, or IWC will cost you at least $5000. The case and dial finishing is unbelievable, and it is at or higher than my other $5000+ watches such as JLC Master Geographic or IWC Portuguese. For less than $920, I don't think you can find a better valued watch in the world. The equipped Swiss Made Sellita Calibre SW 200 movement is also used in other high-end Swiss Watch Manufacturer such as Omega, IWC, or Breitling, which will easily cost you more than $5000. Due to its very fine movement, winding on the watch is extremely smooth, reminding me of high end watch like JLC or PP. In short, for less than $920, I think this watch is absolutely a steal. In my opinion, compared with Omega and IWC, the only thing Eterna lacking is Marketing. The equipped brown alligator strap is extremely high quality, which alone is worth more than $450. The box comes with the watch is made by real wood, which you only see in the very high-end watches.
This watch is also featured screw down crown, so it is rated water resistant up to 200m. In another words, it is not only can be served as a dress watch (e.g. wear with suit and tie), but also it is a sports watch, and can be wear in a casual occasion. Eterna Kontiki collection is one of the most famous collection in Eterna history, which has more than 50 years of history.
From Eterna Website regarding Kontiki Collection
The striking dial face combines practical features with a modest lesson in geography and lets this timepiece meet all the expectations one might have of a watch with this name. To begin with, legibility in the dark is enhanced by the luminous triangular area under the four numbered hours, while strips of luminous compound highlight the eight other hour markers. The centre of the dial bears an engraved outline of Raroia, the Polynesian atoll on which the KonTiki ended its fabled voyage in 1947. The case is built for exceptional robustness, with water resistance extending to 200 metres thanks to the screw-down caseback and screw-in crown.
KonTiki. Its name carries a lesson in courage and determination – that of Thor Heyerdahl and his crew. In 1947, they sailed across the Pacific from the Peruvian coast to a Polynesian atoll aboard a primitive balsawood raft. 101 days and nights at sea to prove a scientific point. For essential operations, each one of them depended on the Eterna watch that never left their wrists. Their survival could have depended on it. Their success wrote history. In 1958, the least Eterna could do was to give the Inca Sun God name of that raft to its most ruggedly reliable watch line. For a good half-century now, the Eterna KonTiki has demonstrated exemplary toughness, water resistance and precision on the wrist of countless other adventurers. Eterna KonTiki. From strengh to strength.
