Pioneers in the "world of silence"
Divers must constantly monitor their remaining air to make sure they have enough time to reach the surface given a few decompression stages for maximum safety. The challenge for Eterna was to create an horological solution to relieve this stress. This gave rise to the first Super KonTiki in 1962. It boasts optimal legibility of the time even in poor lighting, an extremely reliable automatic movement, a rotating bezel with handy grooving and a sturdy steel case resistant up to 200 metres (20 bar). The Super KonTiki from 1973 is the heir to this first timepiece. Various sea-going special forces the world round considered this watch a first choice instrument. Several armies were also equipped with the Super KonTiki in the 1960s and 1970s.
