I thought this was good reading and that some of you might enjoy it. It is fairly brief.

I know...I've said this b/4, every Western watchmaking school train their students on ETA movements.
They all know the ETA inside and out!

Yes the Little Engine That Could and it's related article are informative reading. It would be helpful to many if the SW200 was similarly analyzed.

Yes, it was very interesting and makes me glad I enjoy a good ETA movement.

Many other good ones out there are well, but nice to read some knowledgeable info on this subject.

Let's also add the Miyota 9015 to the list of movements in the ETA 2824 design realm.........It would be great to see a 2824 VS SW200 VS 9015 movement comparison.

Time and again, when veteran watchsmiths write of fine movements, ETAs rank among the best movements, in their opinions.

Same here: https://www.watchuseek.com/f2/incredible-review-rolex-3135-movement-780182.html
How can an ETA not rank as the best?

Of course it does. They make the most reliable movement on the planet. Period. ETAs have been used and tested in every possibly configuration. Easy to service. Bulletproof. ETA movements have been improved over the years to the point of perfection.

BUT..... that is not what we want.

We want unique, quirky, different, mysterious, unknown, prestigious, drool worthy.... and ETA is not that.

Let me go hide somewhere now.

I find very little internet information on the Miyota 9015. In this review of a SmithEverest PRS-25, the author takes some time to discuss the 9015. Scroll down to "Movement" for his comments about it. The thing that jumps out to me from the little I have been able to read, is the fine timekeeping of this movement, in contrast to it factory rated accuracy of up to + 30 seconds per day.

I'll hide too cause I couldn't agree more.

Thanks Gary.......I have read some very positive information about the 9015. I'm interested in it of course because the Lew and Huey Acionna, I have ordered is coming with the 9015 movement. I have a feeling I'm going to be very happy with the watch and movement and for the money ($400) is a pretty smackin' good deal.

It's well-established that ETA movements are cheap and good.

I'll take a 2824 over a 2892 of the same grade any day, though.

You do realize that a Standard grade ETA movement, per specification, is allowed to show up to +/- 27 s/d in a single position, and can show an error of nearly a minute over the course of a 24 hour period?

Most do much better than that though.

The Citizen automatics, which use a version of this movement, also seem to do pretty well.
