This just in from the folks at Eterna.  Hopefully live pictures to follow next week, but for now, the unvarnished info straight from the source -

Adventic GMT with Eterna in-house 3914A calibre
Superior technology and aesthetics

The new Adventic GMT perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the times. It is a masterpiece of fine watchmaking from Eterna that underscores the importance of substance over appearance. An understated, modern aesthetic joins forces with forward-looking technology, practical functionality with first-rate quality and reliability.

The Adventic GMT has a pronounced individual character and displays its contemporary aesthetic appeal without resorting to unnecessary gimmickry. Nevertheless, as the displays on the dial suggest, the Eterna in- house 3914A calibre housed inside the case represents technology at its most advanced. To achieve this, the basic 39 movement was equipped with automatic winding, a date window at 3 o'clock, a small seconds at 9 o'clock and a practical additional time zone. The latter features a 24-hour scale and is accommodated at 6 o'clock in its own subdial, whose distinctive colour and design sets it apart from the rest of the watch. In the latest version of the Adventic GMT, the single hands in the second time zone and the small seconds are both neon orange-coloured, which adeptly creates a link to the warm brown of the ostrich skin strap. Otherwise, the beautiful anthracite dial is reduced to essentials and radiates stylish self-assurance. Elegant, elongated indices with luminous highlights are dotted around an outer ring whose discreet circular decoration is reiterated at the centre of the two subdials. The simple design of the hands, likewise finished in anthracite and coated with white SuperLuminova, perfectly rounds off the modern, no-frills display for maximum legibility.

The 42-millimetre stainless-steel case with its unfussy, gently contoured bezel, slim lugs and finely knurled crown radiates the same, stylish discretion. The time and skill lavished on the finish is reflected in the fascinating interplay of the polished and satinized parts, and in the five decorative grooves that embellish the sides of the case. Five small spheres on the crown represent the famous Eterna brand logo.
