Eterna 1158

Eterna Cal. 1158 was one of a family of bumper automatic watch movements produced from 1945 to 1948.


ETA was one of the three firms “chosen” to develop advanced automatic watch movements by Ebauches SA, thanks in part to their history with Eterna. The chief designer at ETA, Heinrich Stamm, had created many of the company's important watch movements, and was famous for the Eterna-Matic line of watches.

Cal. 1158 was an early bumper automatic movement, the first Eterna movement with direct seconds. It replaced the earlier Cal. 833 family.
