Eterna 154 FTP-3 Valjoux 72 1969 Rarest Black Bezel Gray White Dial 41mm ManualEterna
For auction is a 1969 Eterna 154 FTP-3 Valjoux 72 41mm rarest of all black bezel tonneau sunburst unpolished case gray dial with white subdials. A criminally underappreciated reference that offers up an iconic look. 99% of the time this watch is seen with a burgundy bezel; either with a tachymeter (oddly a rotating one) or a 60 minute bezel. This has a black bezel which is totally rare; it is identifiable as an Eterna bezel with the small dot at the center of the 12 o'clock triangle. So as against all the FTP watches this has the most unusual configuration with the black bezel.
