Eterna Soleure Collection – Soleure Automatic and Soleure Moonphase Chronograph

Swiss watch manufacturer Eterna’s Soleure collection reflects current tastes and expectations in timepiece design. With their ergonomically redesigned cases, Soleure chronographs now provide improved comfort to slimmer, more feminine wrists. A metal bracelet is henceforth available while redesigned hands and dial faces add a further touch of refinement.

Soleure is the French name of the Canton where in 1856 Eterna was founded. With the watch collection, Eterna honours its place of origin by giving to its attractive and most accessible collection the name of the canton it has called home for over a century and a half.

Refashioned and restyled for today, Soleure watches are aimed first and foremost at younger male consumers – although now at younger women buyers as well – who have an equal sense of style.

Soleure Automatic

Its slim polished stainless steel case houses a self-winding mechanical movement with date calendar that provides 38 hours of reserve power. With its case back secured by four screws and a scratch-resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystal, the Soleure Automatic is water-resistant to 50 metres (~ 165 feet).

Silver-toned or black, the Soleure Automatic dial features a “Clous de Paris” cobbled centre plus baton hour markers, along with three Arabic numerals on some models, and hour and minute hands inlaid with a luminous compound. A polished and satin-finished stainless steel bracelet now joins the choice of white, brown or black Louisiana alligator straps – all with folding clasp.

Along with hours, minutes and seconds and chronograph functions, it shows the date on the dial rim along with the day and the month at 12 o’clock.

The Soleure Moonphase Chronograph furthermore features a small seconds and a 24-hour indication at 9 o’clock and displays the phases of the moon at 6 o’clock.
