Eterna reveals Pulsometer 1942 Limited Edition

First published: 10-11-2010

Watchmaker Eterna is taking a step back in time by releasing a timepiece which is a special edition of one of its iconic designs.

Called the Eterna Pulsometer 1942 Limited Edition, the watch is an exact duplicate of the original model, except that the case size has been expanded to 42 millimetres, Watch Luxus reported.

The original timepiece is famous for the fact that "it was the first and only pulsometer chronograph available to medical personnel in Switzerland", but has plenty of features to make it appealing to modern watch fans.

Some of these elements include a dial layout - which features a pulsometric scale, minute totaliser and second subdial – as well as a date window subtly fitting into the six o'clock location.

Eterna, which has been in the manufacturing business since 1856, has finished off this watch with a water resistance of 50 metres, with each timepiece also being engraved with a number between one and 1942, the total limited edition products to be released.
