Ref: TYPE 2, RÉFÉRENCE 130PTX/3
In the late fifties and early sixties, competition was fierce between watch brands to create exploration watches.
Being one of the top watchmakers back then, Eterna jumped in the race and released their « deep » diver the Super-Kontiki. Super because it was back then the most waterproof of the Kontiki line, named after Thor Heyerdahl (a Norwegian explorer and archeologist who launched himself on a raft to prove that the pacific islands had been populated by south-American people instead of the commonly ackowledged theory of a population coming from south-east Asia).
Waterproof at 200meters this is the most coveted Eterna diver, using a big 40mm stainless steel case and an automatic ETA movement modified with Eterna’s own rotor technology. Coming with its original J/M Mexican beads of rice bracelet, with an untouched and superb glossy dial and an unpolished case, this is a top model.
