Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family").

FS: Jumbo Vintage Eterna-Matic Kontiki 20

Ok, this new offering allows me to provide some excellent, and very recent context.

An almost identical watch (same reference) was sold very recently on eBay, albeit with a black dial. Here is the link:

As you can see, it went for roughly $1000 USD, with plenty of bidding. The basics of the watch can be seen on the eBay listing, though of course I can provide any additional detail if necessary.

The difference between the watch that just sold and mine, other than the dial color, is that mine is in better condition throughout. I would also argue that the white dial is more attractive, as the uncommon red accent really pops.

This 38mm watch is in excellent condition, and I have no doubt that most dealers would say "mint". The only notable flaw that I can discern is a thin scratch on the outer rim of case back, which could easily be polished out if desired.

$900 shipped with tracking from my home in Portugal. Add $50 for EMS express, including insurance.

Feel free to ask any questions!

Tony C.
