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 change the name to Eterna).
Eterna produced many innovations in their history: 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.
