    What movement in my Small seconds diver blue??

    I have a Small Seconds diver and apparantly the new ones are issued with SW200 movements since ETA is no longer
    delivering to non-Swatch families.

    Is there a way of finding out which movement is in the watch?
    By ref.nr. maybe or date of purchase?

    Advise would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    It would appear from the website the new 7609 uses a movement which starts out as a SW220 ( http://www.oris.ch/en/watches/oris-d...4-07-4-24-34eb ) which is a day/date ?

    Maybe that's how they add the subseconds as a complication to it and removing the day complication?

    In which case the ETA equiv. should be the ETA2836 with a subseconds complication added?

    Think you are right, but I still wonder if I have the SW220 or the ETA movement.

    That question might be the one for Oris themselves if you provide the serial number etc :)

    Although it wouldn't bother either way which one out of those two it had , Sellita is on a complete par with ETA

    Hi Maestro, the best way to check is to look at the serial number on the warranty card of the watch. If it starts with 743 it is an SW220 but if it starts 643 it will be ETA

    Thank you! That was very helpful.

    Its the reference number on the warranty card and it starts with a 643. Warranty is dated august 2012.
    This convinces me its an ETA movt.

    Thanks for the info.
