Nicely designed vintage Swiss Eterna-Matic Kontiki 20 from the mid '60s.
The watch has quite a large steel case for its time. Namely approx. 37 mm measured without crown and 45 mm from lug to lug. The dial is slightly patinated silver with black-onyx overlaid silver indices and the date at 3 o'clock. This date can be adjusted using quick-set - quickly and repeatedly pulling out the crown...
The screwed caseback has a gold medallion at the centre with a depiction of the raft of Thor Heyerdahl. A Norwegian anthropologist. On 28 April 1947, Heyerdahl together with five crew members began his voyage from Peru to Polynesia on a raft made of balsa wood, which he named Kon-Tiki. He researched old cultures.
The movement is an original Calibre Eterna 1489K Automatic with 21 jewels and Kif-Ultraflex shock proof. It keeps time well, but the service history is unknown.
It has a new orange/brown leather strap of 18 mm with buckle clasp. Suitable for a wrist of up to at least 21 cm.
Please have a good look at the many photos. The watch is optically 8/10 with the usual minor signs of wear in the steel.
Naturally, this item will be shipped well-packaged and by registered - insured - post.
