Eterna’s workshops have given rise to a multitude of critical developments over the course of their 150+ years of history. The manufacture of watch movements has always played an important role in the history of Eterna. To begin with the company only manufactured ébauches, however Eterna already revolutionised the automatic movement in 1948 with its invention of the ball-bearing-mounted rotor system. Originally fitted in the Eterna Matic, this watch is now regarded as a benchmark. The use of ball-bearing mountings is de rigueur for Eterna Movement today – a fact also reflected in the depiction of ball bearings in the company logo.
