ETERNA Contemporary Adventic GMT Automatic

Adventic GMT with Eterna in-house 3914A calibre
Superior technology and aesthetics

The new Adventic GMT perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the times. It is a masterpiece of fine
watchmaking from Eterna that underscores the importance of substance over appearance. An
understated, modern aesthetic joins forces with forward-looking technology, practical functionality with
first-rate quality and reliability.

The Adventic GMT has a pronounced individual character and displays its contemporary aesthetic appeal
without resorting to unnecessary gimmickry. Nevertheless, as the displays on the dial suggest, the Eterna in-
house 3914A calibre housed inside the case represents technology at its most advanced. To achieve this, the
basic 39 movement was equipped with automatic winding, a date window at 3 o'clock, a small seconds at 9
o'clock and a practical additional time zone. The latter features a 24-hour scale and is accommodated at 6
o'clock in its own subdial, whose distinctive colour and design sets it apart from the rest of the watch. In the
latest version of the Adventic GMT, the single hands in the second time zone and the small seconds are both
neon orange-coloured, which adeptly creates a link to the warm brown of the ostrich skin strap. Otherwise,
the beautiful anthracite dial is reduced to essentials and radiates stylish self-assurance. Elegant, elongated
indices with luminous highlights are dotted around an outer ring whose discreet circular decoration is
reiterated at the centre of the two subdials. The simple design of the hands, likewise finished in anthracite
and coated with white SuperLuminova, perfectly rounds off the modern, no-frills display for maximum

The 42-millimetre stainless-steel case with itsunfussy, gently contoured bezel, slim lugs andfinely knurled crown radiates the same, stylishdiscretion. The time and skill lavished on thefinish is reflected in the fascinating interplay ofthe polished and satinized parts, and in thefive decorative grooves that embellish thesides of the case. Five small spheres on thecrown represent the famous Eterna brandlogo.

The 39 calibre: a perfect basis for 88 different movements

The Adventic GMT's automatic 3914A movement is based on the Eterna proprietary 39 calibre, the latest
innovation from the company's workshops in Grenchen, which can be modified to produce no fewer than 88
different movements. The basic movement, which in its simplest form is hand-wound and has hour and
minute hands, owes its astonishing versatility to the unique modular design. This permits simple and efficient
integration of additional components and sub-assemblies.

Apart from its unmatched versatility, the calibre's enormous potential lies in standardized production and optimized assembly, which guarantee outstanding movement quality. Like all other versions of the movement, the Adventic GMT's 3914A calibre has other impressive features such as chronometer-level precision and a guaranteed 68-hour power reserve, and is equipped with further improved Spherodrive technology. Seventy percent of the parts are manufactured at Eterna's Grenchen headquarters or in the immediate vicinity.
