Eterna to reissue the Heritage Pulsometer Limited Edition 1942

First published: 28-02-2011

Eterna is to rerelease one of its unique timepieces, which has a wealth of appealing features that may catch the eye of watch fans.

Entitled the Heritage Pulsometer Limited Edition 1942, one of the most eye-catching elements of the device is its link to the medical industry, Watch Observer reported.

This is done through a pulse meter designed around the edge of the dial, which tracks 30 heart beats to work out a person's beats per minute ratio, in a similar style to how a tachymeter functions on stopwatches.

"Even though its everyday use may seem somewhat limited, this functionality brings an original touch to an altogether very classic model," the news source commented.

This is one of the reasons which appealed to Watch Observer's reviewer enough to grant it a rating of 61 out of 100.

Another eye-catching feature of this Eterna timepiece is the dial being mixed in fluted, polished and brushed surfaces, thus giving it a stylish and unique look.

Watch Luxus has also picked up on the Pulsometer Limited Edition 1942 recently, pointing out that the original watch "was the first and only pulsometer chronograph available to medical personnel in Switzerland".
