ETERNA – KONTIKI DIVER BRONZE MANUFACTURE

On 28 April 1947, the Norwegian anthropologist and explorer Thor Heyerdahl, with five other men, set off across the Pacific Ocean on board the Kon-Tiki. The makeshift raft built by Heyerdahl and his team took 101 days to sail from the Peruvian coast to the Tuamotu archipelago in Polynesia. This human adventure inspired Eterna to create a new collection of replica watches with a sports look: KonTiki. Because 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of Heyerdahl’s epic adventure, the replica watchmaker based in Granges has designed a bronze timepiece baptised the KonTiki Diver Bronze Manufacture. read more
