With the original strap, buckle and box, it is actually the dial of this Eterna-Matic 1000 that stands out.  Model reference 3331T.


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1969.


If you look very carefully you will find some marks on this watch.  There is a tool slip mark on the case back, and some very minor light scratches on the side of the case.  But for a watch of this age it is in remarkable condition.  The original signed strap and buckle still has the shop tag on it!  The case is gold capped stainless steel, so the bezel and tops of the lugs are coated with thick gold but the rest of the case is steel.  The bezel may be solid gold but we can not confirm that.  Behind the screw off case back is Eterna’s calibre 1488K, with quick set date activated by pulling the crown outwards.  The buckle is gold plated and faultless.  But it is the mushroom dial that looks the best, and that is visible via the original signed acrylic glass.  Watches like this do not come around very often.

This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, and our Certificate of Authenticity.
