It’s the design that attracts me and TBH the movement gets very little thought.
Dear heavenly spirits that is some potent pornography
For the price level the 2824 is hard to beat though. The power reserve leaves something to be desired but the movement itself is a workhorse and cheap and easy to fix. And actually pretty darn accurate for the price. You have to respect the 2824 for what it is and not knock it for what it isn’t. The newer in-house Swatch movements are great but put watches out of the price ranges of us mere commoners.To me, a quality movement is very important, but I don't mind repeating movements if the watches themselves are different enough.
Hell, if every single one of my watches had a Blancpain/Fredric Piguet 1315 movement, I'd be in heaven.
The problem with ETA 2824s/SW200s isn't that they're common, but they're fairly outdated as far as movement tech goes. I can't really be bothered with 38 hour power reserves anymore - especially when Swatch Group's in-house movements for their entry-level brands are mostly 80 hours, and very accurate.
