Eterna is a Swiss luxury watch company founded in 1956 in Grenchen, Switzerland by Josef Girard and Urs Schild. In 1948, Eterna advanced self-winding watch technology with the development of the Eterna Matic automatic movement. The use of five strategically placed ball bearings made the movement very efficient and significantly reduced friction and resistance on the oscillating weight that wound the mainspring. This innovation quickly became popular and was widely imitated or licenced throughout the industry. Its popularity was such that in 1948 Eterna adopted the image of five ball bearings on the dial as seen here and applied more widely as its corporate logo.
