Newly Designed Dials for Eterna Vaughan Big Date Watches

Oct 27, 2008
This autumn, Eterna, a traditional Swiss watchmaking company, is unveiling two new dial designs created for the brand's Vaughan Big Date line. One dial design is created in anthracite, while the other one in off-white.

In 2007, the Vaughan Big Date line, featuring classically elegant watches equipped with Eterna's own movements, marked the company's return to the refined art of fine watchmaking. The Eterna 3030 calibre provides the unique big date display.
Now, the Eterna Vaughan Big Date reveals a rose-gold case, an anthracite dial coupled with a brown alligator leather strap.

The stainless-steel version of the Eterna watch reveals an off-white dial. The timepiece goes on a black or brown alligator leather strap. The dial of the watch is convex to match the lens-shaped movement. The elegant dial is completed with subtle minute markings, purely-designed indices and straight dauphine hands.

The big date display of the Vaughan Big Date provides a fast-to-act date function switching over in less than a second at midnight. A great advantage of the movement is that the switch mechanism allows the watch's owner to adjust both the time and date over twenty-four hours. The units disc turns automatically the tens disc in the date display as required. To come up with a slim-line movement, the Eterna engineers have elaborated a ball bearing-mounted date disc, having integrated gear toothing.
To manually adjust the date, it is necessary to twist the crown, with one complete turn adjusting the date by two days.

Being shaped as a lens, the Eterna 3030 calibre features a convex profile on both sides. The two discs of the date display are perfectly united into the movement's cambered surface. The discs are designed as two concentric cambered rings, rotating side-by-side. The automatic movement, providing big date display function, boasts to be the slimmest in its class.

The Eterna 3030 calibre has been developed to guarantee remarkable longevity.
