ETERNA AUTOMATIC 1950s Cal 1428U STAINLESS STEEL PATINA DIAL 34.5MM BEVELED LUGSEterna
For auction is a late 1950s Eterna stainless steel automatic caliber 1428U 34.5mm automatic. A no nonsense high grade automatic piece that has an extremely flush crown that almost blends in seamlessly to the case side. Eterna is famous for inventing the ball bearing that allows the rotor to wind in a 360 degree arc effectively killing off the bumper automatic movement. In general they kept the best movements for their own brand as opposed to ETA and the 1428U fits that profile. But the movement isn't the only excellent thing, the beautiful beveled case is just a great size. The dial has a light even patina that is quite appealing, a handsome excellent and certainly undervalued piece.
