Your comments on the new entry level of hackers and handwinding Japan’s automatic replica watches movement (4R35B or NH35A) and Citizen (Miyota 9015), compared with the Swiss ETA 2824? Obviously, ETA movement proved movement is reliable and accurate, but Seiko and citizen movement initial commentary is also very reliable and accurate but at much lower prices.
The old sports from these Japanese brands have proven to be very reliable, as well. Do you still get the edge of your payment or are these Japanese sports to take over the brand’s entry level market, using these 2824 moves?
While ETA 2824 and, in the smaller capacity of Soprod, A-10 has won the third party and non production of the Swiss automatic movement as a matter of fact, the Asian team is catching up. While the last generation of the MIYOTA action may not have direct competition, such as 7s26 and 8215 is powerful but not very accurate or characteristic (non hackers and manual), this gap is the current generation is more narrow.
The precision of the 4rxx and 6rxx and the Royal generation 9015 we see more fine motor features of the hackers and the possibility of making a more successful precision adjustment (accuracy) in many conditions. All indications are that the reliability should be good or better service should be roughly the same as the cost range of the entry-level Swiss, in many cases, cheaper components. From a functional and reliability point of view, I think 6rxx and 9015 can be comparable to the standard grade ETA 2824, but there are subtle differences in the use of. For example, 9015, there is a note that the rotor noise. That is, when you have a wave of your arms to check, you can often hear the case of the rotor rotating. You need to have your ears very close to hear the ETA rotor. I only mention this, they are not the same, more like a different actor to play the same role.
Replica watches limits the supply of non Replica watches partners in the ETA movement, and I think that the precision and civic / Miyota movement will be due to the design has been shown to be sufficient and the use of 28XX caliber filling has a proliferative effect. A few years ago, you can with a ETA movement in ~ $700 for micro brand divers. Today the prices will push (if not more than 1000 US dollars. Many small brands have switched to NH or Miyota motion not only due to the cost and supply, but also because of the new generation of proof is significantly better than 7sxx and 8215.
It seems to me that the time is beneficial to them, and to solve the reliability caused by the characteristics of timely fill middleman ETA provide predatory pricing. I have a 9015s couple Replica watches, in addition to the rotor noise, the movement seems to be a very successful substitute 2824.
