Another wonderful timepiece. Eterna certainly made some great watches

Thank you! It is lovely and really deserves a better strap - I'll get round to it one day.

Bit later than usual because we had the grandchildren for a “stop over”

Now they have gone it’s back to peace and quite in the garden.

In memory of my late father I thought I would wear his Rotary today

Is that the Triton ?

Warm here, 27 degrees!large.20210717_142938.jpg.23485e0242705a94268d4eb22c835cc5.jpg

I think so but I’m not 100% sure, some referred to the version with the power reserve as the Triton some called that the  Neptune.

City Watches, where I got it from, referred to it as the Triton I’ve seen it called the baby or new Triton in places .

”ride a painted pony let the spinning wheels turn”..

BUT  spot the issue on the back pic..what’s missing? 

 

It's a bit like the old spot the ball competitions and I am surprised nobody has responded yet. My horological expertise tells me that the battery is missing unless its mains powered. Do I win the prize?

So my Chaika lasted about 7 hours I suppose, just until I got home a bit before 3.  And my Miyota Royal London was of course fine, but is showing some 'interesting' new patina on the leather band, on account of my exertions to Knowl Hill and back.

So while I read the latest issue of The Watch and Clock Bulletin with a cold Guinness, I have ditched the vintage Russian and the fashion brand, and changed into something a little less Mickey Mouse.

Well, I can't see any adjustment mechanism?

And you sir are today’s horological champion. :notworthy:

thank you for taking the time to reply.

it does have the usual 2 rabbits ears affixed to the balance but no f/s or a/r direction indication…not that it matters much because on what has a supposedly recommended price in the high hundreds(not that anyone pays rrp) it does not have the usual indents to open the back..indeed it is alleged in reviews to have a flip off back..I assume to make it “waterproof”??????? Despite not having a screwdown crown.

could make me think this one is made by a back street cobbler but wait….they are all made like this by the good Rotarians.
