ETERNA Jumps in the "Way Back" Machine!

Okay, sometimes you have to look back to move forward.  And ETERNA has done just that with its latest offerings.

This is an original ETERNA model produced for the Czech military just prior to 1940 - that being 1939.
With this starting point, ETERNA has endeavored to re-imagine this iconic timekeeper.
These are the new Heritage Military pieces.
