Before I start with the Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph audit, a couple of words on the company first. Eterna has a long history that goes right back to 1856. Notwithstanding, it wasn’t called Eterna until 1905 (but Dr. Girard & Schild, after its originators). Before I leap to referencing Patek Philippe Reviews Eterna is likewise known for ETA. Estimated time of arrival used to be their subsidiary company for making developments for their own Patek Philippe Reviews just as for different brands. Most popular is their Eterna-matic development, which brought about the Eterna logo with its five metal rollers. Estimated time of arrival turned out to be essential for what we know today as Swatch Group. Eterna has been in various hands since 1982 (counting Porsche Design) however since a couple of years it is claimed by Citychamp Patek Philippe Reviews & Jewelry Group Limited.
The Eterna KonTiki Patek Philippe Reviews are alluding to the Patek Philippe Reviews on the wrist Norwegian voyager and essayist Thor Heyerdahl and his group during the . Eterna didn’t utilize the name KonTiki (without the hyphen) until 1958. From that point forward, the KonTiki models have been in the Eterna collection. There was even a re-release of the absolute initial 1958 model, with a similar style elements. This year, Eterna presented a Super Kontiki Chronograph Patek Philippe Reviews the one we have here for you today. Controlled by an in-house chronograph development with section wheel instrument. Let’s have a look.
Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph
The Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph is a jumpers Patek Philippe Reviews obviously, as it alludes to Thor Heyerdhal’s undertaking in 1947. The Super KonTiki was at that point in Eterna’s collection in 1973, and the plan of the new Patek Philippe Reviews has remained consistent with its legacy. In today’s Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph you will locate an in-house produced type 3916A development though.
Let’s start with the greatest news. The Eterna type 3916A development. A chronograph development with section wheel development and flyback work. With the flyback chronograph, you can reset and restart the circumstance without meddling with an additional press on the beginning catch. You simply press the reset button and the chronograph will restart immediately.
The type 3916A development ticks at 28,800 vph and has a 60 hour power hold. Eterna tried to make the development alluring for the eyes too, with its rhodium finish, blued screws and microblasting adornment on the rotor. As should be obvious, the Eterna type 3916A development can be respected by means of the sapphire caseback.
On the Wrist
The Patek Philippe Reviews with its 1970s look & feel sits pleasantly on the wrist. I have genuinely enormous wrists, however was shocked to learn that the Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph estimates 45mm in measurement. It wears a lot smaller, maybe because of the state of the case. The Patek Philippe Reviews is thick however, with a tallness of 16.05mm. This is the thing that I’ve come across with a great deal of late chronographs with in-house produced developments however. A week ago I investigated the new Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M titanium models , and the chronograph model is very thick also.
As you can see on the image underneath, the pushers aren’t screw-down and the winding/setting crown has the 5 metal roller Eterna logo. The Patek Philippe Reviews is water safe up to 20Bar (~200 meters). Presently, somebody said something on our Instagram account on this Patek Philippe Reviews (we previously distributed a wrist shot of this Patek Philippe Reviews there) that a diver’s chronograph with no screw-down pushers is somewhat odd. I concur, albeit the Seamaster 300M Chronograph likewise doesn’t have screw-down pushers (and can be worked submerged). The winding and setting crown is screw-down, of course.
Chronograph under Water
However, they had some framework set up to keep the Patek Philippe Reviews water safe submerged when the pushers are utilized. With the Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph it doesn’t appear to be the situation. So I accept that you better not utilize the pushers submerged with this Patek Philippe Reviews And for what reason would you, as it is probably difficult enough to peruse those sub registers as of now without great sight.
I like the sunburst dial on this blue form of the Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph. The dark rendition has a matte dial, which is maybe a touch more ‘tool-watch’ evidence. In any case, this Patek Philippe Reviews is an incredible piece to wear ashore also, during Summer. So the sunburst will give that decent impact on the dial. The three-sided hour markers are filled with Super-LumiNova and perform well overall. All hands, remembering those for the sub dials are lumed up.
On 6 o’clock, you’ll discover the date gap. The Eterna logo with the five metal balls is situated on the 12 o’clock hour marker. All hands are sufficiently long to have the option to impeccably peruse the time.
Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph Case
As composed over, the instance of the Eterna Super KonTiki estimated 45mm x 16.05mm. That is moderately enormous, yet some way or another it wears smaller and is very comfortable on the wrist. As should be obvious, I have the elastic lash rendition (there is likewise a Milanese bracelet as an alternative) and that helps making it comfortable. It consummately circumvents the wrist and the Patek Philippe Reviews sits tight.
The case has this ordinary 1970s pad shape which I truly like. Long, the Patek Philippe Reviews estimates 50mm because of the long drags. The case is pleasantly wrapped up. Brushed parts just as cleaned thick aspects. The uni-directional hour long scale bezel has this huge help squares on the side for a simple grasp. The case band has a silk brush finish too. The caseback bezel has a glossy silk brush finish on the base and a cleaned side. This screw-down caseback has a sapphire precious stone, as demonstrated on prior pictures.
The blue elastic tie is quite comfortable. Within it has these tracks and outwardly it has ‘Eterna’ in it. The brushed buckle has the Eterna logo again and has cleaned inclines. Everything feels top caliber. The tie doesn’t need any slicing to be fit (in the same way as other elastic bracelets with collapsing catches do). I loathe doing that, as this can turn out badly effectively and it likewise feels extremely complete. Not the situation with Eterna’s elastic tie though.
The Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph is likewise available with a Milanese bracelet. I haven’t seen this one in the flesh, or attempted it. It gives the Patek Philippe Reviews that 1970s look and feel, yet it very well may be the situation that the whole bundle will be very weighty eventually. Nonetheless, I can’t make certain on this without having attempted it in person.
Limited or Special Edition
I got a model Patek Philippe Reviews yet as should be obvious, the caseback peruses Limited Edition. However, on the authority Eterna site, you can’t discover this Patek Philippe Reviews under the customary collection outline. It is under Special Editions. Regardless, it isn’t restricted. It will be in the standard collection and creation. I end up finding the site and the public statement a tiny bit ‘unclear’ when it comes to item outlines. Something Eterna needs to put a smidgen more spotlight on. As per the Eterna press material, the elastic bracelet forms are more costly than the milanese bracelet renditions. That would truly astonish me to be honest.
Note: Eterna let us realize that this model was at first intended to be a restricted release. Upon additional investigation they chose to not to release it all things considered. It is presently an extraordinary release and not limited.
That has nothing to do with the Patek Philippe Reviews itself in any case. Yet, I do think about what last creation renditions will have engraved on the caseback. For the rest, all important data has been engraved in the bezel of the caseback.
Official Pricing and Some Thoughts
The evaluating on this Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph is 4650 Euro for the elastic tie rendition, and 4850 Euro for the milanese bracelet version.
To be fiercely genuine, it is without precedent for quite a while, that I’ve took a gander at an Eterna in person again and I am emphatically surprised.
Ingredients for Success
This Patek Philippe Reviews has a great deal of elements for progress. The in-house made development with section wheel component and two register spread out is one of them. There are relatively few in-house made chronographs out there that offer something for comparative value point in this style and quality. Just on the off chance that you will think beyond the normal presumes you will discover fascinating Patek Philippe Reviews with regards to this value range, a few times much less expensive. The plan of the Patek Philippe Reviews is 1970’s from one perspective, yet extremely timeless on the other. I would be amazed if this becomes unpopular in, let’s say, the following 10 years. Likewise significant, the Patek Philippe Reviews feels great on the wrists and works pleasantly. Simple to set the time, utilize the chrono etc.
Out of the Box
The cost is unquestionably intriguing. In the event that you take a gander at the standard presume brands with comparative determinations, it is all nearer to 10K than to 5K. It can be very worthwhile for you to view this Eterna Super KonTiki Chronograph in the event that you need to possess something great and notable, for a reasonable price.
