    ETA winding direction

    I have a squale 1521 with the ETA 2824 inside... To move the time forward (clockwise) you turn the crown anti clockwise. This is different to every other watch I have.

    Just wondering is this common to just the squale or all eta 2824’s? Or all ETA’s for that matter?

    I find it more logical to turn the hands clockwise by turning the crown clockwise...which is the way all my other watches work....

    Anyone know?

    Thanks.

    Design of the 2824 and it's clones. 2892 and 2893 as well....and the Miyota 9015 and 82xx.

    Also the STP1-11.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So it’s all ETA 2824’s. Do other ETA movements have the same trait?

    What movements are ‘clones’ of the 2824?

    Sorry for all the questions just curious....

    SW200 is a copy or it.

    Only my Seiko moved the time ahead by winding clockwise. Even my Orient has to be wound counter clockwise to change the time.

    Strange though because it does make more sense to have it clockwise.

    Interesting my orient star classic winds and moves hands clockwise by rotating crown clockwise...

    It's complicated when getting into the weeds...

    The SW200 is a clone of the 2824 but many (most?) parts are not interchangable as they flipped some of the connections, And the SW has an additional jewel. There are searchable threads about this here on WUS.

    The STP1-11 (made by Fossil) is also a 2824 clone, but again, I don’t believe parts are interchangable.

    The SW300 is a clone of the 2892.

    The SW500 is a clone of the Valjoux/ETA 7750 chronograph movement.

    There are also Chinese made clones of all of these movements as well as all of the Rolex movements.
