I have a couple of Citizen watches Eco-drives and an older Promaster automatic.
One question I have is about the second hand movements. On my current watches and nearly all I've ever owned before, the second hand ticks at the "once per second" rate.
On Rolex, and some of the other high end watches I've noticed second hand movements that appear to move smoothly or maybe 5 to 6 ticks per second. Is this a particular type of movement? Is this a type of movement that separates expensive movements from cheaper ones? Or do some premium watch makers utilize the "once per second" movement too.
On a side note, I came across a watch by Steinhart (kind of a Rolex GMT looking watch) for about 500.00. I loved the look of the watch and saw many good reviews on them. These watches have the smooth second hand movement I mentioned above too. Is this something to do with their use of an ETA 2893-2 movement?
Thanks for answering a noob!
