I am looking for an ETA 251.262 or 251.264 chronograph movement for a project watch (a Certina panda style chronograph). So far my research has shown that the ETA 251.262 and 251.264 movements are interchangeable. After searching for the specific movement on eBay and unhappy with the price, I started searching "Swiss chronograph quartz". This led to not just the movements, but also non-Swss import watches with Swiss movements.

I think I found a fairly cheap watch that may use the 251.262/251.264, but the seller is unable to open the case. So my question is do any other movements feature:

Minute, hour, chrono second, chrono minute on the main dial
Sub dial at 2 features chrono 1/10 seconds
Sub dial at 6 features seconds
Sub dial at 10 features chrono hours (12 hour max)
Date window at 4

This is the watch in question:

It looks like the spacing is right.

I know the 251.262 is expensive, but it's a multi-jewel chono with a GMT hand-like hour function. It's almost worth the gamble on the ebay watch... I know these movements aren't all that cheap.

Well, lots of places do... just for a lot more than $34 ;-)

It's not a cheap movement in terms of modding stuff...
