Eterna 1413

Eterna Cal. 1413 was one of a family of automatic watch movements produced from 1953 to 1958.


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. 1413 was the the successor to Eterna's first full-size ball bearing automatic movement, Cal. 1247. This five-ball design became the logo of the Eterna watch company.

Technical Details

Once the ball bearing rotor was proven, Eterna began working to make the movements thinner. This family is reduced in thickness from 5.9 mm to 5.55 mm for non-date versions and 5.85 mm for date. Most models have 17 jewels, though later versions have a 21 jewel option. All operate at 18,000 A/h and have 48 hours of power reserve.

This movement family includes 11.5 ligne, 12.5 ligne, 13 ligne, and 13.5 ligne variants.

All movements use suffix “U” to signify Eterna-U shock protection. Suffix “D” denotes a new 3-spoke ring balance, new hairspring stud, and new hour wheel spring.
