Eta 2824-2 Movement Watches

This article falls under the category of personal preference-and you know differ from person to person. For 20 years, I am my own watchmaker, a lot of movements have been already through my hands. The Valjoux 7750 with its nail-biting details such as the oscillating pinion for the drive of the second of stop, or the force behind the stop lever of the hour counter, the dial: The work speaks its industrialized origin of all bridges and clamp.

Like, I’m working on old works. A DUROWE, Roamer or Peseux makes me happy. Why? The parts fall almost alone in the Assembly into place, and the construction is service and watchmakers-friendly. Quite a few manufacturers now fully replace a 7750 Service. Is faster, and ultimately cost side absolutely comparable. And the risk that the customer with a complaint comes back after the service, is much smaller.

Of all the works I like one but best: ETA 2824-2 and all its derivatives – from their own home, but also a number of other manufacturers, which now with the expired patent protection build solid replicas of Swiss tractor.

The movement is based on a design by Eterna from 1955, the caliber 1427. The work vibrating at that time with cosy 18,000 VPH anticipates also the applied automatic engine and the rotor with the ball bearings typical for Eterna concise construction steps of the clockwork. ETA takes the construction in 1971 and refined it over the years steadily, without however changing the basic principle of construction. Some details also clearly show the cost in the construction of the movement were how important: while the caliber of the series had 2783 still date discs with complex shape, they are today at the 2824 only from a stamped brass without any stabilizing edge.

Yet the work for a vintage watchmaker is a convenient pleasure. It is easily disassembled – the Strip takes just a few minutes. The common parts are known — including the change gears of the automatic, as well as the Crown and his bearing, the Spring House bridge. Here steel grates on brass, using the hand-wound. The result is logical, if after a few years of use the lubrication is no longer in effect. The elevator of the automatic, however, is generally very efficient – not to compare with the feeble ETA 2892. Today, the factory has 25 jewels, at the beginning, there were 17, later 21 – also depending on version, which was ordered by the manufacturer.

The rain location at the factory is not usually, depending on the version, the possibilities of the work according to. With the absolute standard version, a very good accuracy can be achieved with a thorough rain location. First, the setting of the waste error of that is ms ideally in reclining position 0,0 is important. Then, the deviation can be set depending on the regulating device (Etachron, or index in older works).

Visually the work not with the most elegant products like match type, but in running with full cuts, blued screws, or even in PVD black coating the plant looks high quality and noble. It is also a real marathon runner – a good speed for a period of up to ten years is quite normal. However, even this tractor needed an oil change.
