    Detailed information on different movements?

    Newbie here.

    I'm looking for detailed information on different movements, automatic movements. Diagrams, schematics, video, pics, instructions, tours of factories and videos of tours of factories.

    Anything that I can learn about how things work from.

    Thanks.

    Both, as I'm interested in SEEING and LEARNING how things have evolved, improved and how things work.

    I'm in the process of purchasing an Orient Star 300m Diver with a yellow dial so the movement that powers this watch would be a great start.

    Thanks for looking.

    There is a ton of info online. Google movement types, ie 2824 movement. Here are a couple of websites:
    http://www.chronometrie.com/eta2824/eta2824.html

    The WIS encyclopedia of the 2824 ETA movement -- by Rafael Ed. Calderon

    The movement on Orient is 46N4A -made in Japan. Google it and poke around.
