I am looking into purchasing a Parnis Submariner with what is advertised as a ETA 2836 movement. However, I have read from many very reliable sources that Swatch has essentially shut down sales of all ETA movements to manufacturers that are not within the swatch group.
So, my question is, how do I really know if I am really getting a genuine ETA movement, or if it is a equivalent Seagull movement with a greatly inflated price? I would hate to purchase the watch and have to remove the caseback to really validate, and if the movement is not a genuine ETA movement, fight for a refund.
Thank you very much for your assistance!
