    ETA 2824-2 vs. ETA 2834-2

    I can't seem to find the answer to this question. I am looking at two watches, one uses the ETA 2824-2 (Hamilton) and one uses the 2834-2(tissot). What is the difference/which is the better movement. I am assuming both are the standard grade. I am new to this and hear a lot about the 2824,but less about the 2834. Thanks.

    The 2834 is based on the 2824, and includes a day function (at 12:00), the 2836 has day at 3:00. Otherwise the same movement.

    2834 and 2836 are day-date movement, only the day position changes.

    If you don't really need the day, go with the 2824 (date only), the simpler the better.

    How accurate are these movements typically? Thanks

    It depends on the movement's grade, the highest grade is Chronometer which runs at -4/+6s per day while others could run anywhere within +/-15s per day.

    The movements are available in different grades (typically: standard; elaborée; top; and chronometer). Accuracy will depend somewhat upon the grade, and whether the movement has been regulated. Chronometer grade specifies variance within -4 to +6 sec/day, but generally, even a standard grade movement can be regulated to within that range or close to it. Regarding your choices, my guess is that the accuracy an individual watch will have is more luck of the draw than any inherent differences in the movement design. And having your watch regulated is quick and inexpensive. (My guy charged me 10 bucks and it took him a couple minutes.)
