Style: Mid Century Dress, Sport

Circa: 1940's

Case: Solid stainless steel 2-piece case with separate bar attachments between the lugs which clamp the case together using 4 small screws. Measures 38mm X 27mm.

Dial: Original factory printed 2-tone dial signed Eterna-Matic Swiss with centre seconds and luminous numbers and hands.

Movement: Signed Eterna-Matic Swiss 15 Jewel full rotor movement in excellent condition. Recently serviced and in excellent working condition.

A wonderfully inventive early attempt at waterproofing, this example is rare in that it has both a tank design case and automatic winding technology in one.  I love the sharp sculpted lugs.  The dial is still quite clean and bright with very little ageing. A very stylish timepiece in excellent condition.
