As part of its much-coveted Heritage Collection, Eterna unveils the new 1948 For Him Reveil watch. Deftly blending classic style and watchmaking prowess, Eterna’s newest watch is a statement of form and function. Each watch is powered by a rare movement, the 1475 caliber with alarm function. The vintage movements were discovered by Eterna and it was decided to create a special edition watch. Just 70 pieces will ever be made.
The mechanical watch offers hour, minutes, seconds and alarm functions. It also has 46 hours of power reserve. The alarm is indicated by a distinct red hand. The 40mm case is crafted in stainless steel and the daily is vintage eggshell white. Even better is the retail price: just $5,000.
Eterna has been producing mechanical watches since 1856, when it was founded in Switzerland. The brand’s workshops have produced a wealth of important developments over the centuries, including a ball- bearing-mounted Eterna Matic rotor, and the first wristwatch with an integrated alarm. Other milestones include the recently developed Eterna Spherodrive ball-bearing-mounted barrel, which has set new standards in terms of the quality and longevity of a mechanical movement.
