Eterna – Heritage Military 1939
We as of late expounded on the Longines Heritage 1935 , a model motivated to the watch initially made during the 1930s for pilots in the Czech Air Force. In reality, Longines was by all account not the only provider of the Czech Armed Forces. Indeed, likewise Eterna and Lemania created these pad formed military watches, referred to by gatherers as the Majetek, from the caseback etching “Majetek Vojenske Spravy” which means, pretty much, “Property of the Military Administration”.
The new Eterna Heritage Military 1939 honors this magnificent model of the past with two case variations.
The primary (reference 1918.104.22.1688), combined to a dark cowhide lash, highlights a brushed and cleaned steel case which outlines a dark dial with green radiant hands and Arabic numerals while the second (reference 1922.214.171.1249) has a dark PVD treatment and is completed by an earthy colored calfskin strap.
Compared to the first model, the fundamental contrasts are the bigger 40 mm case (versus 38 mm), the date window at 6 o’clock, the AR-covered sapphire precious stone and no “Majetek Vojenske Spravy” engraving on the back case.
