Eterna-Matic Sport 1856 Kontiki Chronometer Item #2612 Price $1225
Great look on this early 90’s Eterna-matic Sport 1856 Kontiki Chronometer-grade wristwatch with original stainless steel bracelet, Chronometer Certificate, and Instructions booklet.
Eterna made many Kontiki models, but this is one of the cleanest looking, most wearable models we’ve seen. It is a nice size so it fits your wrist comfortably. Very easy to read the time and well made. This is maybe one of the best values for an everyday watch.
The watch is housed in a 36mm stainless steel case. The screw-on caseback features the signature Kontiki raft with nice, sharp details. The crown also screws down and is signed with Eterna’s logo. The black dial looks great with luminous indices and white/luminous hands. A contrasting date window at 3 o’clock completes the look. The watch comes ready to wear on its original stainless steel bracelet. It features an Eterna-signed double fliplock clasp. This bracelet will fit up to a 7 ¾ inch wrist.
Powering the watch is a Swiss made certified chronometer movement, based on the ETA 2892-2. It features automatic winding and quick-set date at 3 o’clock. It comes recently serviced, keeping very good time. The case and bracelet were both completely disassembled, very lightly refinished, and then ultrasonically cleaned. It has passed a pressure and vacuum test, and the printout is included.
