Back in the day…
Eterna originally created this watch in 1942 — the first ever pulsometer watch. It re-issued the watch in 2010 as part of a “Heritage Collection” initiative to revive the brand’s legacy. Since first laying eyes on it I have been strongly drawn this particular watch, I think because it reminds me of my late Grandfather (1942 was approximately when he would have started his lifelong career as a family physician). Of course, back then, the instruments of medicine were primarily mechanical, and the pulsometer watch is a perfect example of that. Now everything is so high-tech, but I suppose that’s a good thing. Nevertheless, because of the sentimental reaction this Pulsometer watch evokes in me, this is a watch I would be proud to wear.
