We recently wrote about the Longines Heritage 1935, a model inspired to the watch originally created in the 1930s for aviators in the Czech Air Force. Actually, Longines was not the only supplier of the Czech Armed Forces. In fact, also Eterna and Lemania produced these cushion-shaped military watches, known by collectors as the Majetek, from the caseback engraving "Majetek Vojenske Spravy" which means, more or less, "Property of the Military Administration".
The new Eterna Heritage Military 1939 pays tribute to this glorious model of the past with two case variations.

The automatic movement used for this model is the ETA calibre 2824-2 beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offering a power reserve of 38 hours.
The Eterna Heritage Military 1939 is a limited edition of 1939 pieces for each variation with retail prices of US$ 2,140 for the steel version and US$ 2,390 for the black PVD one.
