    How do these movments compare to the ETA 2824-2?

    Has anyone seen an analysis of how the the new Miyota 9015 or the new TMI/Seiko SII NH35 stacks up against the ETA 2824-2 in terms of performance?

    Since there're new, ask again in 20+ years.

    If that is the answer, I would expect these new movements to outperform the ETA movement because they employ better technology!

    I think the point is that it will take 10-20 years to get an idea of the durability and long term viability of those movements. Right now, they're, well, new.

    I think the Japanese manufacturers, particularly Seiko, have proven they can build a durable, damn-near maintenance free movement. I am wondering about performance in terms of time-keeping?

    After reading the specs for the Miyota, it should be comparable...

    It really depends on the watch manufacturer. Any base movement can be made to Chronometer grade with some modifications or adjustments but not all manufacturers do this to their movements. That said, many manufacturers don't bother with those things and just put the movement in bone stock with a few adjustments only.

    With regards to durability, I'd say the Japanese are ahead in this regard. They've pretty much cornered the super low end automatic sector where the watches are subjected to hard use and harsh environments. Most of these watches don't even undergo maintenance, for the most part and are still running well.

    I just picked up a watch with the Miyota 90S5, similar to the 9015 but with a skeleton opening in the front. I guess all I can say at this point is "I'll let you know," but after two days with the watch its timekeeping has been perfect, but as the cliche goes, time will tell.

    Usually 20 years of normal use is a good indicator.
