Hello, I'm looking into a buy a new watch with one of these movements. I know ETA's from experience dont like to be wound up. The autos. Problems with reverse gears and rotor are common???

on my stienhart it feels like the eta doesn't like to be hand wound. nothing like a seiko which feels smooth and easy to wind 1000x turns no problem. ofcourse only 40 or so is needed for full mainspring.

But is there a different design on the manual wind eta 2824? are they more reliable for winding up? any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. :think:

Perhaps you are asking about an ETA 2801-2? The 2824 is an autowinder. Yes, it hand winds but the auto function is recommended.

Much of the resistance you feel when winding an ETA is from the reverser gears on the auto winding works. A manual movement won't have that.
