KonTiki - Another View

Eterna is, of course, known for the KonTiki.  When we think of the KonTiki these days our thoughts tend to jump right to dive watches.

But that is a shame, because the KonTiki started life as something other than a dive watch.  So I thought it might be interesting to have a look at the modern KonTiki in a more "traditional" format.

These pieces are from the KonTiki Date series.  Hours, minutes, seconds and date.  Clean, easy to read, and nothing superfluous.

When you really think about it - what was the watch REALLY worn by the crew of the KonTiki on that first voyage?  Something like this.  Although maybe not with a gold bezel and crown ; )
