eterna-heritage-military-1939-41-46-1298It is truly hard to compel a seasoned watch enthusiast.  Having handled watches that range from the complicated and modern to the aged and vintage, it takes an outstanding combination of design and heritage to motivate a “wow” response; especially from a new production.  Eterna has struck a cord with its latest Heritage Military Limited Edition.  Bringing back the design from their 1939 issue to the Czechoslovakian military, Eterna has assembled a new vintage. Starting with the dial, the Heritage Military dons a very accurate representation of the original 1939 issue.  A gilt minute track and logo sit atop a matt black dial along with the luminescent arabic numerals of the same original font type.

These 1939 pieces of the Eterna Hertitage Military Limited Edition are the gateway for the modern watch lover to the vintage world.  Exemplifying the best parts of a vintage dial and case with slight modern updates, this automatic military style timepiece is a versatile modern piece for many occasions. Maxing out at $2,400, this exceptional reproduction to the trained eye is priced to be a member of all collectors collections.
