About the Kontiki Expedition, 1947
In 1947, the Norwegian explorer and ethnographer and his crew of scientists set sail across the Pacific Ocean on a hand-built raft to prove that ancient civilizations could have crossed the seas using primitive sailing crafts. Equipped with only the most rudimentary of instruments—except for a radio and six Eterna timepieces— the expedition was a huge success, marking new understanding in the movement of populations, and the start of one of the most iconic watch collections— The Eterna KonTiki.
