Back in 1968, this watch left the manufacturer and today, it hasn’t looked better!

This common reference 130T from Eterna is the true value proposition. Although the reference is common, the configuration is not. The black, glossy dial with silver lettering is in inmaculate condition, having all the tritium plots present and glowing under UV light. The date is really interesting, having a black background that meshes perfectly with the dial, and silver font. The case is, as well, in really good condition; maybe polished before, but not overdone. For me, this watch is really brighten up by the big and bulky screw down crown.

The movement has been overhauled earlier this year, in June, so it’s working as a charm. If this wasn’t enough, it comes with the original Gay Frères bracelet, at full lenght, and the original box (that most likely was added to the bundle later).
