Eterna Mens 7630.69.10.1185 Vaughan Rose Gold Big Date Luxury Watch

by John Sealander

Eterna Watches. Nothing by Watchmaking. Since 1856.It is a little known fact that very few watchmakers actually develop and manufacture their own movements anymore. Eterna is one of a very few brands worldwide that still do. The Eterna Vaughan Big Date — named for Philip Vaughan, inventor of the ball bearing — was developed entirely in-house and is a superb example of traditional Swiss watchmaking at its very best.

Eterna Mens 7630.69.10.1185 Vaughan Rose Gold Big Date Watch - Dial ViewThe Vaughan Big Date features Eterna’s spectacular new 3030 calibre movement. This innovative lens shaped movement, developed entirely by Eterna engineers, is modeled after the famous Eterna 1504 movement from the 1960’s.

This innovative mechanism is currently the world’s thinnest automatic movement with a domed big date function. The convex, lens shaped movement features two concentric cambered date disks that rotate side-by-side, instead of being stacked on top of each other like the flat horizontal date disks found on most automatic watches. As a result, the 3030 calibre movement is able to be housed in a slim, exceptionally smooth case that mirrors the compact lens shaped mechanism.

This high quality mechanical timepiece will appeal to purists and admirers of elegant restraint. The 27 jewel, 42mm watch features a sapphire crystal, classic dauphine hands, subtle applied minute markings, a sunray brushed cambered dial and a screw down back.

Three ceramic ball bearings in the date mechanism help reduce friction and play to a minimum, and the large date display switches over in a matter of seconds at midnight, instead of taking hours like some automatic movements.

The Vaughan Big Date is a watch that the wearer will want to pass on to his children and grandchildren. This classic timepiece is available in rose gold or stainless steel and comes fitted with an elegant brown or black Louisiana alligator strap.
