The return of a classic among classics

The new Eterna "1948" recalls the launch of a pivotal invention.
Eterna is now introducing two new versions of the technological breakthrough which, back in 1948, made possible the world's first self-winding watch whose rotor pivoted on ball bearings. This exceptional timepiece generated strong and lasting interest worldwide, as much because of its unforgettable good looks as for its technical sophistication, becoming a genuine classic in the process.
