    For sale is a nice Eterna-Matic Chronometre with uncommon black waffle dial and stainless steel case.

    1.jpg 2.jpg

    The dial is difficult to photograph due to glare on the crystal, but it in excellent condition. The markers are applied with gilt lettering. The stainless steel case is 34.5 mm in diameter excluding the crown and 44mm from lug-to-lug. The case has been polished in the past, but the lug facets and serial number on the back are all visible. Minimal scratches to the back from prior opening attempts.

    The hands are original with some minor lume loss to the minute and hour hands. The crown is signed Eterna, which I believe is original. The cal 1243UC Chronometre-Automatic movement is in very nice condition. There are some signs of previous rotor rub, but the rotor was tightened and issue was corrected. This watch was was actually owned by efauser in the past and was serviced in December 2016 according to the prior sales listing.

    Overall, a really fun watch with good movement and attractive black waffle dial. The case serial would date this to around 1951. It will come on the black leather textured strap pictured in the photos, which complements the watch nicely.

    I am asking $600 which will include shipping in the USA. International deals are gladly welcome and will ship at cost to buyer. Transferwise preferred for international trades. Returns accepted only if the watch is misrepresented. I have many feedback on OF if you search "MikeMan2727" in the Seller Profile and Reviews section!

    Thanks OF for the space!

    I was able to get some better photos of the dial after playing around with the lighting last night. These represent the dial nicely.

    Beautiful watch. Which is not surprising at all given my theory that 87.3% of all the beautiful watches in the world are in your possession, good sir. That’s just a rough estimate based on your postings! GLWS!

    I'd buy this myself if I wasn't in the process of a 're-organisation'..... If it had Omega on the dial it would be 5x the price!
