Many fans of this iconic 1960’s dive watch place this above the other well-known pieces of the day like the Rolex submariner, Blanc pain fifty fathoms and Omega dive watches of the 60,s in fact this watch was selected by THE Israeli defense force (IDF ) for use by its special forces divers in preference to the other mentioned brands.
This is a serious professional divers tool watch and in my humble opinion one of the coolest looking and with a great back story ;
Named after the wooden raft Kontiki that sailed across the from South America to Polynesia in 1947, an epic 8000-mile journey. during which all crew members wore an Eterna watch .
This piece from c 1968 is made even more desirable by the extremely rare Decompression Bezel and the fact it still comes with the original kontiki Guy freres bracelet It even comes in its original box
The 40 mm solid stainless-steel case is in completely original condition and the automatic movement keeps great time .
