Introduced in 2010, Eterna’s Heritage collection has resulted in some fantastic timepieces, each a tribute to Eterna’s past. First there was the 1973 Super KonTiki, then last year we saw the 1942 Pulsometer, and this year Eterna is releasing the Heritage Chronograph, derived from a predecessor which debuted in 1938. Reflecting the aesthetic codes of the late Art Deco period, the Eterna 1938 Chronograph is distinguished in its contrasting brushed and polished steel case surfaces, its matte black dial, geometrically balanced gold-toned minute and seconds circles enhanced with nine similarly colored Roman numerals, gold-toned hands, and a nicely paired strap. You could make a nice little watch collection for yourself if you owned each of the splendid Eterna Heritage Collection pieces! This beautiful time piece is limited to only 1938 pieces worldwide.
