Eterna Madison Three-Hands

Swiss watch manufacturer Eterna presents a new addition to its hand-wound line – Eterna Madison Three-Hands. The new timepiece will be fitted with Eterna’s 3501 movement, the second generation of the original 3500 calibre. Madison Three-Hands will also be following in the footsteps of the first Madison model in its aesthetic qualities.

Eterna Madison Three-Hands has been fitted with the hand-wound 3501 movement.  This rectangular calibre features a simple time display in a dependable, aesthetically pleasing design. The hour, minute and second hands are positioned centrally on the dial. The winding wheels in this new movement are mounted on ball-bearings; the reduced friction will increase the enjoyment of winding up the watch as a daily ritual, while substantially lengthening intervals between servicing.

Four screws hold the anti-reflective sapphire crystal back with its beautiful bridges and fine Geneva strips. Aficionados of mechanical watches will appreciate the calibre’s extraordinary bridge arrangement and decorative quality.

The elegant slim-line Eterna Madison Three-Hands tonneau case is made of polished stainless steel, and is fitted with a domed sapphire crystal watch glass. In contrast to the limited Madison models, the long sides of the case have a finely mitred finish. As is typical for Eterna, the sunray-brushed dial arching from six to twelve o’clock has been kept in subtle, unobtrusive shades of colour. The Pavé structure in the centre, the bar index marks and rhodium-plated dauphine hands emphasise the elegance of this timepiece.

Eterna Madison Three-Hands is available in three dial colours – light grey, anthracite and off-white. The first comes with a brown crocodile-leather strap and polished stainless steel folding clasp; the other two models sport a black crocodile-leather strap also fitted with a folding clasp.
