KonTiki Chronograph
TOP
 Borders? I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people. 
 Thor Heyerdahl 
A chronograph for the adventurer

If you happen to need a timepiece built to withstand just about everything, consider the KonTiki Chronograph. First, it comes equipped with ETA’s tried and true calibre 7750. Besides displaying the time and date on its classic KonTiki dial. the mpovement was designed to measure time up to 11 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds.  To keep it protected against all hazards including the finest dust particles, Eterna has secured the movement inside a solid stainless-steel case that is water-resistant to 200 meters, fitted with screw-in pushers and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The valiant raft is remembered in a discreet engraving on the caseback. So whenever you have adventure in mind, remember to have a KonTiki Chronograph on your wrist

Reliable and rugged
Anyone who sets out on a prehistoric voyage across the Pacific needs not only a great deal of luck but also food, water and of course instruments that work perfectly even under the most adverse conditions. In 1947, for his expedition, Thor Heyerdahl chose an Eterna wristwatch, at the time already synonymous with uncompromising reliability. That watch and its successors naturally took on the KonTiki name. Later, time and Nature demonstrated the KonTiki's exceptional ruggedness, even when exposed to long- term hostile conditions. A KonTiki 20 from the 60s spent several years at the bottom of the lake of Geneva, in Switzerland. It was then brought back to the surface and despite a few rust stains and many encrusted mollusks, still worked perfectly. The KonTiki Chronograph is demonstrably a rugged and reliable wristwatch, heir to a long and distinguished bloodline.
