ETERNA BALM-GALE 1930's STAINLESS STEEL RECTANGULAR EARLY WATERPROOF CASE RADIUMEterna
Please refer to photographs for the most accurate presentation of condition
For auction is a 1930's Eterna Galm-Bale (a retailer) early rectangular waterproof case with great patina dial. Two piece case construction is actually great quality and does a good job protecting the movement and dial. The quality is also dripping off of this watch, all those beautiful bevels done on hand guided machines....just delicious. This was a mans watch, but at 23MM it is an ideal ladies piece (or unisex). Mounted on a gorgeous strap that matches the patina color of the dial...just a very very nice watch for not very much money.
