The ETA 2836-2 is similar to the ETA 2824-2 but with central day and date wheels. It is part of the standard “Mecaline” lineup at ETA and remains in production as of 2019.
ETA’s 2836-2 is used as the TAG Heuer Calibre 5 Daydate Link.
Clones of the ETA 2836-2 include the Hangzhou 6311, Hangzhou 6460, Sea-Gull ST2100, Sellita SW220-1, and Valanvron VAL-36.
Current ETA 2800 Family
The ETA 2800 family currently consists of six movements in production since 1982. They are compact but not particularly slim automatic movements operating at 28,800 A/h. The basic Cal. 2824-2 and 2836-2 are among the most widely-used movements in modern Swiss watches. Although over 5 dozen different movements in this series have been produced, just six are available today. Due to restrictions from Swiss COMCO regulations, ETA is unable to sell movements outside the Swatch Group since 2020. This has forced many watch makers to turn to the similar Sellita SW200 series of movements.
Calibres 2801-2, 2824-2, and 2826-2 are officially listed as “phased out” by ETA after 2021, leaving just Calibres 2804-2, 2834-2, and 2836-2 available for sale. This is in keeping with ETA’s focus on proprietary movements for Swatch group companies rather than outside customers.
