Eterna produced a number of watches that are highly respected by watch collectors. The Kontiki is one of them. It was introduced in 1947 by the brand with one main purpose, to sail from South America to Polynesia on a wooden raft. These watches were named after the raft they used, Kontiki. If you look at the back of the watch, you will see a gold medallion that shows a representation of the Kontiki back in time.
Tropical dials are hot right now, but not all tropical dials were created equal. Some are artificially created to command a premium, but this one turned brown due to exposure to elements and, in essence, humidity. I have to say that I can not be happier than it did.
