ETERNA 1940 Teleme­ter Chrono­graph Fly­back Bronze Man­u­fac­ture –5,190 eu­ros

WatchTime - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

A new bronze watch looks very much like a gold time­piece, but the al­loy soon ac­quires a charm­ing patina.

With this new time­piece, the Swiss

man­u­fac­ture re-re­leases a his­tor­i­cal gold watch in trendy bronze. The choice of this ma­te­rial en­ables Eterna to en­large the for­merly pe­tite model to a con­tem­po­rary di­am­e­ter of 42 mm, but with­out cat­a­pult­ing its price into the strato­sphere. The teleme­ter scale can be used to de­ter­mine the dis­tance to the source of a sound, for ex­am­ple, a thun­der­bolt or (hope­fully only his­tor­i­cally rel­e­vant) a grenade launcher. The fly­back func­tion lets the user in­stan­ta­neously restart the chrono­graph with­out an in­ter­ven­ing step. Au­to­matic Cal­iber EMC 3916A amasses a 60-hour power re­serve and is based on Eterna’s mod­u­lar Cal­iber 39, which, ac­cord­ing to its man­u­fac­turer, can sup­port 88 dif­fer­ent com­pli­ca­tions. The move­ment is vis­i­ble through a disk of sap­phire sur­rounded by a stain­less-steel rim in the back of the case.
