Since 1962, the name Super KonTiki has been synonymous among divers for outstanding reliability and precision. Today, the first diver's watch with a rotating bezel from the House of Eterna is a timekeeping icon both on land and below the surface. This year, the original celebrates its much -awaited revival with several new models, including the Black edition, limited to 888 watches.
The brand also offers three unlimited versions of Super KonTiki in stainless steel. In these models, the famous compass needle-shaped indices on the black dial and the luminescent hands are finished either in neutral white or an eye-catching yellow. The cool vintage style is perfectly rounded off with a milanese bracelet, a black-and-orange NATO strap or a leather strap with the popular used look.
Heyerdahl had embarked on his derring-do expedition to prove that it would have been technically possible for the pre-Columbian Indians of South America to reach Polynesia with the help of the Humboldt Current and the Passat wind. On their wrists the researchers wore specially made, extremely tough and reliable watches from Eterna's workshops. The crew put their trust in these indispensable navigation aids whenever they had to carry out manoeuvres or make decisions upon which depended not only the success of their mission but also the survival of the men themselves.
After 101 days and nights on the high seas, with almost 8000 kilometres behind them, Thor Heyerdahl and his crew finally reached the Raroia atoll in Polynesia. Their watches likewise survived the journey and shown no sign of damage from salt water, the humidity or the fluctuating temperatures. The technical findings and expertise taken from the creation of the timepieces for this successful expedition subsequently flowed into the further development of Eterna's sports watches.
