Feeling Blue (and Bronze) with the KonTiki

Despite the prolonged "Sleeping Beauty" that continues in Grenchen, there are still some wonderful time machines on offer from Eterna, and this is one of my favorites.

The KonTiki is one of those wonderful watches that seems to endure, and the latest options in bronze are definitely special.

The KonTiki Bronze Diver is of bronze and measures 44 mm in diameter. It is water resistant to 200 meters (if the legend on the dial is anything to go by).  The dial is particularly beguiling with a "frosted" texture and white applied indices.  The movement is Eterna's very own EMC 3902A, self-winding with a power reserve of 65 hours.

Should you be so inclined, the suggested retail is $3,580.  

Here are the pertinents -
