No warranty, which really sucks. Too bad. Love the watch but would be hesitant with no warranty, manufacture movement, and Eterna went backrupt last year (like 2 or 3 times in the last couple years!) and has been having fire sales to get rid of their stock, and it's up in the air whether they will continue or make many of the models again. My understanding is if they continue it will be with Kontiki line as it is more profitable/popular, but I personally think the Adventic line should continue as well....

Functionality aside, it’s just another boring looking watch.

Last November, you said it was “a nice watch”.

A lot of the watches I find boring are nice enough watches--they run, are reasonably well made, aren't terrible looking--but they just don't have any sex appeal. Life is too short to wear boring, plane-Jane watches.

I'm a fan of their designs. The bracelet with the grey watch face would have been a nice option. Can't pull the trigger though, just ordered a DRZ-03.

It's now cheaper than Joma by 11 bucks, probably cause it reached 20 orders

By the way, I had owned another Eterna with this same 3914A movement previously, and returned it due to issues with its' accuracy. I felt it was an anomaly but, unfortunately, it was not. Now having 2 strikes, I will not take another swing at it.

I have owned this watch for the past 9 months, and it pains me to talk in a negative manner. The watch itself is well done with nice finishing and dial work. The GMT can be set independently, making for a convenient dual timekeeper. Even the strap, ostrich for mine, is high quality and handsome. All that said, I would steer clear of purchasing due to the problematic 3914A modulized movement. It is just not ready for prime time. (pun intended) The accuracy was erratic, the functionality was undependable and I was very disappointed in its' overall performance. After sending it in for repair 3 times, I gave up and got rid of it. It's really too bad, since I loved the look and feel of this timepiece.

what was the underlying problem with yours? I know that these movements are getting to a point where they require service since it they have been in storage for over 5 years some may require lubrication.

The accuracy of the movement was unreliable and, when setting the watch, the hand set would advance when crown was pushed in. These issues were apparent in both watches I purchased with the same movements. I loved the watches but, even after the seller serviced it, these conditions were not fixed. The seller, himself, confessed that many of these watches with same or similar movements exhibited the same issues. He went on to say that most people either do not notic eit or care. Knowing I was more particular and had some level in collecting watches over the past 50 years, he refunded my purchase price without hesitation.

Nice watch, a little pricey for the functionality it provides. If I was really concerned about missing planes and trains while traveling I'd use my phone--it's less prone to user errors!

Is this an Office GMT type, or True GMT type? The True GMT refers to a watch where the half pulled position jumps the local hour hand by 1 hour increments as it does for the higher end GMT movements (Rolex, Omega, Tudor, Grand Seiko) - while leaving the GMT hand on the wearer's home timezone. In opposition, an Office GMT refers to a watch that uses the ETA GMT movement or clone, where the half pulled position turns the GMT hand one direction and the date wheel the other direction. With an Office GMT it means that every time you move to a different time zone you have to:
  1. Pull the crown out two positions stopping the watch, adjust the time of the watch to the new time zone moving all the hands on the watch.
  2. You'll have to use another reference time as now the watch has stopped and it’s no longer accurate.
  3. Next push the crown back in one position and wind the crown forwards to return the GMT hand back to where it should be (your home zone, or any other reference time you have to use).
  4. Next wind the crown backwards to change the date (if necessary).
  5. Lastly press the crown in again to finish setting the time and date, and screw the crown down ensuring its water tight once again.
With a True GMT, every time you move to a different time zone you have to:
  1. Pull the crown and change the main hour hand to the local time, while leaving the GMT hand for your home zone, or any other reference time you have to use.
  2. The watch continues to run and your time is still accurate. Only the main hour hand has changed.
  3. Next wind the crown backwards to change the date (if necessary).
The ETA based Office GMT are very frustrating if you have to change timezone several times in a short period of time... I know, I travel for work and I could not stand it any more. I deeply regret selling my Omega Seamaster GMT many years ago. I should have had it serviced instead! The ETA based Office GMT is really designed for someone who - for example in an office - has to track the same one or two other time zones in a regular and sustained manner, without needing to make changes too often... An Office GMT is really not very good for traveling where you'll need to change time zones every few days or so. Note: of course, with an ETA based Office GMT another possibility to minimize the steps when changing time zones, would be to use the GMT hand as your new local time (where you are traveling), leaving the main hour hand on your home time, same as when you left your home. But believe me, doing this induces errors such as nearly missing a train or a plane! If changing time zones often, with a GMT watch you really want to use the main hour and minute hands for your new local time where you are currently traveling, and use the GMT hand for your home zone, or any other reference time you have to use. That's why it's such a breeze to use a True GMT watch such as say, a Rolex Explorer or a Grand Seiko GMT, or an Omega.

I 👁️ your . if I'm not mistaken you can add to your list of "True GMT" the Montblanc ⌚ using an in house movement (or module) as well as the Longines Master Retrograde which is a do it all GMT capable of moving any hand without stopping ticking.

Beautiful GMT watch. I wonder if it's a real GMT or an office GMT like the ETA 2893 is? Either way, I love the dial texture and hands, remind me a lot of my Kontiki 39mm, one of the best built watches I've had the pleasure of laying my hands on. If only this one were 40mm and not 42 wide, I'd sell my cat and mother to buy it even if I didn't have the cash today. Eterna is a fantastic brand!
