One of the most common Swiss watch movements, the ETA 2824-2 is the third refinement of the original ETA 2824. Like most ETA movements, Cal. 2824-2 is available in Standard, Elaborate, Top, and Chronometer versions. The similar ETA 2836-2 adds a day wheel. Cal. 2824-2 replaced Cal. 2824-1 in 1982.
Cal. 2824-2 is frequently re-branded by other companies. Examples include Ball 2050, Frederique Constant FC-303, Glycine GL 224, Jean Marcel JM A05, Nord N3, TAG Heuer Calibre 5, and U-Boat U-28.
Since the patents for the design are expired, there are a number of clone movements. Common ETA 2824-2 clones include the following: Hangzhou 6300, Peacock CL3000, Sea-Gull ST2130, Sellita SW200-1, STP1-11, and Valanvron VAL-24.Images are taken from official publications and are used here for commentary and educational purposes.
