On 7 November 1856, Dr. Joseph Girard and Urs Schild founded Dr. Girard & Schild. During the 1870 there watches was built entirely in-house. The company continued to be at the leading edge of watch development, and in 1908 it patented the first alarm wristwatch (now they had changed the name to Eterna).
Eterna have produced many innovations in their time: the smallest production wristwatch with a Baguette movement in 1930, an eight-day alarm watch in the 1930s and their first automatic watch in 1938.
In 1948, Eterna advanced self-winding watch technology with the development of the Eterna-matic automatic movement. The use of five strategically placed ball bearings made the movement very efficient and significantly reduced friction and resistance on the oscillating weight that wound the mainspring. This reduced the wear and tear on internal parts, increasing the watch’s accuracy and useful life.

What to say!? This watch have never been worn and is like it just was picked up at the factory. The dial is flawless with a beautiful sunburst effect, it's hard to capture in photos - but it sure is spectacular to see. The case is unpolished, like new. If you study it hard you may see a little, little mark at the end of the right lug - but its hard to see. The crystal got a super thin, light scratch that you can see in specific angels. It would be easy to erase but since we wants this spectacular watch to be as genuin as it gets we have decided to let it be. Original crown. This watch is as beautiful as it gets and really is something for the real watch connoisseur, we hope that the pictures speaks for them self.
