Wow. What a roller coaster thread! Just finished the whole thing after picking away over a couple days. I have always loved this one. I peeked at the website and saw the change to the 2892 and wondered why. Though I know it is a highly regarded movement. Well hearing the seemingly higher than usual issues with the soprods the switch now makes sense.
Things I like-Swiss made, higher end Swiss movement, sapphire, lumed ceramic bezel, legible, classic looks, pops of blue, titanium, bgw9, thin profile, 500m, display back.
Things I don't-flat lugs, though I think I can pull it off. My armida A2 just works for me and I bet this wears similarly.
I am very tempted to grab one of the new ones but I would have to jettison a watch or two (bathys, armida A2, sumo...?)
This thread hasn't made me hotter or colder on the watch just more educated. I think I should be able to pull it off with my 6.75" wrist. Seems many people have that size wrist and said it's a good fit.
If any enablers want to chime in or throw out some eye candy or wrist shots, please do!
I'm not worried about the different tones of metal as I noticed that even on some ss watches and it's not a bother for me.
Anyone chime in on pros and cons vs the soprod a10, ETA 2892 and the 2824-2? I believe the 92 is slimmer and regarded as higher end. Is it as "workhorse" as the 2824 often is perceived?
Thanks all! Appreciate your contributions
