    2892-a2 on eBay, what grade?

    eBay listing

    Has any one used one of these before? Are they authentic? What grade are they?

    Looking to start a mod project to make a unique simplistic diver type watch, and like this movement, but want to make sure I'm getting a real and decent quality one.

    Thanks!

    the 2892 is considered the smaller, better version of the 2824, so it can only be top grade or above. However, if you're making a diver, a top grade or above 2824 might be a better fit for most of the submariner type cases out there as the 2892 might need additional spacers.

    I'd have to agree with Elaboré.

    Sure not Chronometer and I doubt it's Top at that price.
