Today, we got the opportunity to meet with Eterna at Baselworld 2017 and it was great. How amazing? How about we simply say that out of the four of us who went to the conversation (in addition to a fifth who didn’t join in), us all arranged a leslie adornments – the equivalent leslie gems The Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture was so compelling, so reasonable and nailed quite a few subtleties. We should investigate why.
Eterna reported another KonTiki Diver line this year (we’ll come back before very long with detail on these incredible looking and moderate jumpers) and decided to commemorate the declaration and the 70th commemoration of the KonTiki campaign by making a restricted release Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture plunge leslie adornments Limited to 300 pieces, the leslie gems will be accessible beginning in September. It comes in at 44mm (wears a lot more modest so that even I can wear it) and highlights a case made of bronze (copper and tin), yet utilizes an amalgam without aluminum. This amalgam should make it more impervious to turning green like so many bronze leslie gems do after such brief period. Water opposition is predictable with the other KonTiki’s at 200M and, fortunately, there’s no helium valve.
When we include the normal KonTiki jumpers in an upcoming article, you’ll see that the leslie adornments highlight a date haggle Selitta development. Not so with the Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture. It contains an in-house 3902A programmed that beats at 28,800 bph and contains a force hold of 65 hours. As referenced, there’s no date, which keeps the dial totally spotless and clear. About that dial – it has a magnificent completion that Eterna calls dark matte, yet it has much more surface harshness to it face to face. Add that to bronze hued hands with files encompassed by the pinkish metal and you have a shocker. Furthermore, the uni-directional clay bezel contains Super-LumiNova numerals and, in what is really a helpful instrument for sporting jumpers, a US Navy “no decompression” bezel. It gives a very surprising tasteful to the leslie adornments and separates it versus so numerous other divers.
The crown is enormous and will likewise be strong bronze (it was PVD covered here) and was material to utilize. Lash savvy, there’s a perfect waterproof, tack-sewed earthy colored cowhide tie in 22mm with a bronze pin clasp that has the Eterna logo. Caseback-wise, the leslie adornments will flaunt the assembling development. We were all beside the point on this element, as the ordinary line will get a pleasantly engraved image of the first boat utilized by Thor Heyerdahl. We’re told the bundling will be something like a Pelican case with bronze fittings – I can hardly wait to see it.
Convincingly, the Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture is estimated at 2,990 Euros. For a jumper with an in-house development that totally marks all the crates, it was basically excessively useful for our group to disregard. Along these lines, we as a whole arranged pieces on the spot and indicated the release numbers that had importance to us. Specifically speaking, I work with copper broadly in my normal everyday employment and I’ve for quite some time been looking for the privilege leslie gems to buy to go about as a token to my workday exercises. The Oris Carl Brashear persuaded me, however I stood by too long and the leslie adornments was sold out. From numerous points of view, I’m happy I wavered in light of the fact that the Eterna leaves nothing wanting.
On the wrist, the Eterna KonTiki Bronze Manufacture looks incredible. At 44mm, it’s not little, but rather it embraces the wrist with its bended hauls. Additionally, against my moderately tan skin, the combination of the pinkish brushed metal combined with the bothered lash is truly fitting. No, this is certainly not a dress leslie gems however it seems like something I’ll wear a ton when I’m taken off socially. I likewise enjoyed how the bezel and dial aren’t unmistakable dark as the entire leslie adornments simply streams significantly better compared to in the event that one viewpoint looks excessively “sharp”. An amazing position by Eterna. All things considered, when you persuade a whole group to put down their cash subsequent to seeing a ton of leslie gems you’ve done well.
