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.

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.

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!

This watch is so, so amazing in real life, I had one that I couldn't afford to keep, and I regret selling it. Really stunning. worth this price and much more. I bought mine near this 950 price, put it on eBay after I realized I coulnd't afford it, and sold it in like 3 days for $1100. Really an impressive piece, fine craftsmanship and the pinnacle of the art as far as I'm concerned....I know if you spend tens of thousands you'll get even better, but for me price is a factor too, and for less than a thousand, this piece to me is as good as it gets. The black dial just sucks you in, it has real depth and texture and reeks of quality up close, and the yellowish small hands are just perfect with that ostrich leather strap. Fantastic

It does not independently adjust as far as I can remember. GMT setting is in position 2 opposite date

No. It is owned by the city champ group from Hongkong. The eterna history is amazing though. Check Wikipedia. They actually created eta and what was to become swatch. Anyhow eterna makes a lot of very good in house movements entirely in Switzerland.

It’s Certina that belongs to swatch group. Name can be easily mistaken.

Thanks everyone for the VAT comments - brilliant info to know, I have just brought a Ball but Eterna have come onto my radar as a very underrated company this with an in house moment makes this a very attractive drop - that said it'll be no Christmas pressies for anyone in the house if I do pull the trigger - 6 months later and i'd be all over this.
