    That's a very nice B&M, mleok.

    Ooops! Sorry, off topic! Please, carry on, gentlemen.

    Yup...I agree. And the closely related Sellita movements are good too.

    I was immediately drawn to this watch (Sinn Klassik) when I saw it--clean styling, enamel dial, and 2892-A2 under the hood. Comes in 36mm and 42mm sizes, though I'd get the 36mm if your wrist doesn't demand a larger size. Pics borrowed.

    I could learn to live with the chopped off 6 on this one:




    which also strangely enough now reminds me off the other Swatcher

    Hamilton Intra-Matic and the Jazzmaster Slim.

    Me too, and same goes for the Sinn I posted, though it's much less offensive on the Sinn.

    It's to be hoped there's nothing wrong with ETAs - I've got a safe full of the things.

    I've tried this one on and I love the size of it and well, when it's on the wrist, that date is less noticeable than when it is enlarged 200% on your screen.

    I have often found these sites helpful regarding ETA movements:

    ETA Mechanical Watch Movements
    ETA watch movements
    ETA automatic workhorses, the 2824 and 2892 « Bernard Watch Blog
    ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse: Mechanical movements - ETA's mechanical movements at a glance (pdf catalog available)
