The KonTiki range is the brand’s worldwide best seller. The raft was named after the Incan Sun God KonTiki which was used by the Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl, in his 1947 expedition across the Pacific Ocean, from South America to the Polynesian islands. All 6 sailors on this small raft wore specially designed water resistant watches made by Eterna and survived the trip!
