    Just arrived yesterday. The plexi full of scratches, on a original eterna (80s) bracelet, but oh boy, look at it now.

    Dated to 1968. The triangle at 12 is relumed/added later so non original.

    Otherwise, the only aspect I question is the bezel inlay. I see numerous examples with the same inlay, but I now had two people questioning the inlay as a later example. Any thoughts?

    First three pics are mine.

    Rest is just as a reference.

    Funny thing, the last picture is mine, taken a few years ago and long time lost from my hard drive.

    That's lovely; I was vaguely aware of the history of Super Kontiki, which it seems Eterna continues to celebrate in its modern re-releases. But these are something special. Might have to make one my first venture into vintage.

    I'm not sure how I missed this thread, but Eternas do tend to fly under the radar. Here's mine, one of my very favorite divers. The box was a nice bonus.

    Very comfortable Gay Freres bracelet.

    So how did the thread get this far without a KonTiki medallion shot?
