Just pulled the trigger on a Stenhart. Noted that the seller included this info. Can anyone clue me in as to the differences between the three ETA models here?

2824 is a 3 hand automatic. Comes in a few grades (Steinhart generally uses mid grade). Considered a workhorse. ETA's entry level mechanical movement.

2892 is a more premium 3-hand automatic. Thinner than the 2824 and generally more finely adjusted, grade for grade.

2893 is a 2892 with a 24-hour hand for tracking a second time zone (GMT watches)

The thread Ginseng108 provide is an excellent source to learn about the various movements/calibres. In addition to this thread, below is an article providing a narrative on the ETA 2824-2, ETA 2892, and the Valjoux calibres. Also, below you will find another great website detailing the various movement calibres. In particular, the ETA 2893-2 calibre, which compliments the material covered by CaliberCorner's on the ETA 2893-2.

ETA 2824-2, ETA 2892, and the Valjoux:

Steinhart used to be very precise about the movement in the past. It's like gambling nowadays, you won't know what you get unless you open the watch's caseback.
