    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    I have had several come and go in my collection, these are the three I still have:






    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Thank you Colonel!

    It is the second last version of the Soleure triple date moonphase chronograph with day/night indicator. This is by far my most complicated watch. It is post Porsche Design/ pre-Chinese takeover.

    42mm with short lugs means that I can actually wear it.

    It has an ETA/Valjoux 7753 that has been heavily modified by Eterna to become a single pusher chronograph. This does mean it is quite thick.

    Brushed satin dial with textured subdials. The running seconds/ 24 hour subdial has two textures to indicate day/ night. The chronograph hands are blued steel while all the rest are polished.

    I was wearing it last full moon when I took this picture:

    Thanks Henry. Eterna is such an under appreciated brand. I love my Madison 3 hands. Waiting to see what direction they are headed with the Chinese take over.
