Eterna KonTiki Sonic

It seems like the trio (see Nautilus, ScubaPro and Eterna) has just become a quartet by the addition of the Eterna KonTiki Sonic!

I was pretty much stoked I was able to get this one: it’s got the same case as the KonTiki Super but with a Sonic movement (Eterna’s tunigfork movement) and orange dial. This must be pretty rare in this combination of (at the time) high tech movement and a robust utilitarian design.

The ‘humm’ of the movement is not as audible as the Accutron’s and the sweep of the second hand just as perfect. Another very cool piece of dive retro!
