Eterna – Eternity Lady
AND LO, ETERNA CREATED THE ETERNAL WOMAN
As the French novelist and academic Henry de Montherlant (1895-1972) put it so beautifully in Les jeunes filles published in 1936, “Eternity is another word for embrace.” Eterna has put a delicious and playful spin on his words and called its new ladies’ watch collection: Eternity Lady. Here’s a range of subtle pieces that wrap the wrist in a loving embrace.
Classic romanticism and precious stones come together to create a piece that comes in six models as women celebrate diversity. The Eternity Lady is first and foremost a watch with the perfect low-key proportions on a black or white leather strap whose waffle design brings to mind crocodile scales or a strap with seven rows of steel links. The 32mm steel case houses a quartz movement with a silver or gold crown topped by a blue cabochon to set the time functions. The case features a polished steel or gold PVD-coated bezel paved with a row of 68 brilliant-cut diamonds on certain models.
The effect created by the row of glittering gems is elevated by eight diamonds. The diamond markers are bevelled and paved in pairs on the dial. The combination of 76 gleaming gems (on the bezel and markers) capture light on the dial and intensify the shimmering glow from the white mother-of-pearl.
The milky disc bears Roman numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 interspersed with either diamond teardrop markers on mother-of-pearl or slender, triangular, faceted silver indices.
The Eternity Lady collection only tells the time: hours and minutes tracked by two slim baton-shape hands in metal or gold depending on the model you choose.
