What do you want them ranked on?Hi guys, I am aware the Swiss movements like ETA are the better quality ones. I am looking at a watch with a Miyota 8215 movement. On a scale of
one to ten with the Etas at ten, where does the Miyota rank? Thank you
(and ETAs aren't exactly the best you can get)
The Miyota 9015 is not far off being as good as the ETA 2824-2, and some people will tell you it's better because it doesn't suffer the same hand-winding issues as the ETA.
However, the 8215 doesn't hack, is lower beat, and suffers from the Miyota stutter (google it).
It's not terrible, but it's very much an entry level automatic movement and not found in many watches over a couple of hundred dollars nowadays.
Why would you want to wind an automatic watch daily?You can't even wind and ETA 2824 daily and expect it to last. You can do that with Miyotas.
That's just one example of the complicated nature of saying which is better.
Miyotas are very robust. ETA has more heritage.
