Hello everyone. I've enjoyed reading all this great information and seeing wonderful pictures about all these watches on this forum. Its helped tremendously in my understanding about watches. However, I'm having problems figuring out how you know what type of movement a watch uses.
Some manufacturers do not list their movement type (ex ETA 2824 or 2892). For the most part, I find its an 'automatic' not a 'quartz' but not if the automatic movement is a 2824 or 2892 or whatever. Where does one find this information? I'm starting to get the handle on what watch companies use the ETA or their own movements so I get that difference. I understand that some companies use 'copies' of the ETA movements too. I just want to know if xxx watch uses xxx movement beyond the basic 'automatic' or 'quartz' movement. Maybe its a level of Freak-Jedi-Watch-Mastery I haven't attained yet.
Specifically, I was looking at Tissot's various chronograph watches (many look the same) but no info on the movement types. The ADs in my area had no idea what I was talking about (I went to three ADs) nor did they carry any so I pretty much have to buy these sight unseen and like to gather as much info as I can first. . . maybe through a gray market dealer (amazon) but that seems to be another hot topic here.
Thanks in advance everyone!
