    SOLD: Eterna Kontiki *LNIB*


    Yet another very recent acquisition I dislike having to part with but that's the case if I am to get my hands on the grail that just came up. This Kontiki is in like-new condition having been worn a mere handful of times. In fact I don't even recall wearing it out of the house. A wonderful piece with tremendous history behind it.

    The best outdoor adventure companion for more than 50 years
    The striking dial face combines practical features with a modest lesson in geography and lets this timepiece meet all the expectations one might have of a watch with this name. To begin with, legibility in the dark is enhanced by the luminous triangular area under the four numbered hours, while strips of luminous compound highlight the eight other hour markers. The centre of the dial bears an engraved outline of Raroia, the Polynesian atoll on which the KonTiki ended its fabled voyage in 1947. The case is built for exceptional robustness, with water resistance extending to 200 metres thanks to the screw-down caseback and screw-in crown.
