Tonight’s post will be short, I’m writing from my iPod Touch because of technical issues with my PC and my wife is using the Mac for work.
I read a very good article in this month’s Watch Time about the ETA 2892. They gave it a very favorable review. I have always liked the ETA 2824 more than the 2892 because it ses more sturdy and more reliable and because it is the movement of choice for Rolex to use in their Tudor models.
It seems that the thinness of the 2892 outweighs the sturdiness of the 2824 for most watch companies. I guess they find it to be sturdy enough.
The thing that surprised me the most was how many variants there are of the 2892 including a perpetual calendar, big date, day-date, sub-seconds, and of course chronograph. If we include third party modules there are another twenty variations by about 4 other companies, including a 5-minute repeater.
