The history of the Eterna KonTiki is based on the famous 1947 journey of Norway's Thor Heyerdahl. "Kon-Tiki": it was the name of the balsawood raft on which Heyerdahl and five other Scandinavians sailed from Peru to the Polynesian islands. The Norwegian explorer wanted to prove his long-standing thesis: Polynesia was not settled from the west, but from the east, before the time of Christopher Columbus. The KonTiki expedition took place in the post-war period and had great symbolic significance: It reminded the world of our desire to explore - which seemed to be lost in the decades of war. Thor Heyerdahl once said, "Borders? I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people."

The dial of this Eterna is flawless. White dial with silvered hour markers, date window set to three o'clock, bordered by a minute track. The dial is very well preserved as you can see in the photos. The tonneau shaped case have signs from use and so do the bezel. The original steel link bracelet with folding clasp is tight and fits the wrist very good even if it got signes from use. Since we want all our watches to be as authentic as possible, we have not polished the case/bracelet to get ride of the scratches.
