First of all, we still want to introduce the mainstream movements in the world. ETA is a familiar manufacturer. It is the most famous Swiss movement supplier. It was founded in 1856. The strength of ETA is very strong. Both small brands and large companies like to use their movements.
It is also because it is too popular and has too much influence on the market, so ETA has always faced the accusation of “monopoly”. To this end, the Swiss government has repeatedly investigated ETA companies and required them to comply with commercial regulations. However, how can you suppress your ambitions after you have the strength? By 2002, they restricted the supply of ETA billet movements. This move has caused a shock in the industry, because many watch companies have been using ETA watch movements, and now suddenly reduce supply, undoubtedly broke their life, some companies are even facing the danger of bankruptcy.
Now, some products of ETA have become the benchmark in the industry. For example, ETA 7750 (with refined to three levels of observatory) is the world's most widely used Swiss chronograph movement; ETA 2824-2 (25 gems, 28,800 vph, 38 hours reserve, four from standard to observatory) Grade) is greatly welcomed by more intimate brands such as Hamilton; ETA 2892.A2 (21 jewels, 28,800vph, 42 hours reserve, three grades from refining to observatory) often appear in high-end brands, such as IWC, Breitling and Omega. It can be described as suitable for both young and old, practical and versatile.
In short, ETA covers a wide range of topics, from the simplest big three needles to the most complex perpetual calendars, and it does a pretty good job. Because of this, its price is also the most expensive of the core.
