ETA Cal. 2826-2 is an automatic movement with date. It is a new entry in the long-running ETA 2800 family, introduced in 2004. The predecessor Cal. 2826 was produced in extremely limited numbers between 1971 and 1977.
The date wheel is the defining feature of Cal. 2826-2. It uses two overlapping discs, with the lower disc numbered 1-16 and the upper disc 17-31 with an aperture between 31 and 17. This allows a larger than usual date to be shown at 3:00 on the dial. The overlapping disc arrangement differs from the traditional dual-disc big date complication at 6 or 12 in many other watches.Images are taken from official publications and are used here for commentary and educational purposes.
