Eterna Adventic GMT
Eterna announced the launch of the Adventic GMT, a 42 mm stainless steel piece, with a beautiful anthracite dial, powered by the in-house developed Calibre 3914A. For this model, the basic 39 movement was equipped with automatic winding, a date window at 3 o’clock, a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock and a second time zone at 6 o’clock. The latter features a 24-hour scale with a subdial having a distinct pattern that sets it apart from the rest of the watch.
In the latest version of the Adventic GMT, the single hands in the second time zone and the small seconds are both neon orange-coloured.
The Calibre 39
The Adventic GMT’s automatic 3914A movement is based on the Eterna proprietary 39 calibre, the latest innovation from the company’s workshops in Grenchen, which can be modified to produce no fewer than 88 different movements. The basic movement, which in its simplest form is hand-wound and has hour and minute hands, owes its astonishing versatility to the unique modular design. This permits simple and efficient integration of additional components and sub-assemblies.
This movement’s enormous potential lies in standardized production and optimized assembly. Like all other versions of the movement, the Adventic GMT’s 3914A calibre has other impressive features such as chronometer-level precision and a guaranteed 68-hour power reserve, and is equipped with further-improved Spherodrive ball-bearing-mounted barrel. Seventy percent of the parts are manufactured at Eterna’s Grenchen headquarters or in the immediate vicinity.
