Eterna - 1948 Legacy

Eterna 1948 Legacy

The 1948 Legacy of the brand Eterna is the contemporary interpretation of the model 1948.

From 1948 on, Swiss-made self-winding movements benefited from a major technical advance devised and implemented by Eterna: ball-bearing assisted rotational movement. Swiss wristwatches fitted with this revolutionary innovation soon enjoyed worldwide success, solidly consolidating Eterna’s international reputation. Today’s revival of the “ 1948” in a dimensionally updated version preserves the technical inventiveness and overall excellence of the original. A contemporary classic in its own right, its shapely contours and typically incurved case lugs are back essentially unchanged.

"Legacy", the contemporary version of the “1948” features a sturdy proprietary self-winding mechanical movement, calibre 3030, fitted with a ball-bearing device similar to the original’s. 41.50 mm across, its finely polished 18 ct 4N rose gold and stainless steel case with transparent sapphire porthole at the back embodies today’s design preferences.

The case frames a silver- toned dial enhanced with rounded hour markers and a large-date window at 3 o’clock,over which rotate rhodium-plated hour, minutes and seconds hands protected by an antireflexive scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.Like the original design, today’s “1948 Legacy” comes with elegantly facetted and incurved case lugs securing a brown alligator strap fitted with an 18 ct rose gold deployment clasp.

The 1948 Legacy is proposed in two versions. The one in steel and the other one in steel and rose gold 18 carats.
