    Movement differences

    There's a list here of movements in various watches on the Orbita website.

    I have no idea if it's accurate or not but I noticed something that made me curious.

    Here are the entries for the Ball Hydo GTM's:

    Engineer Hydrocarbon GMT I Ball Caliber 2893-2
    Engineer Hydrocarbon GMT II Base ETA 2893-2

    I'll bite - what's the difference in the Ball Caliber and the base ETA? If you know, pls be as specific as possible!

    Ball Hydrocarbon GMT I, Baume & Mercier Worldtimer, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, IWC Aquatimer Chrono Blue & Orange,Omega SMP, Rolex Gmt-Master II BNLR, Tag Heuer Monaco Gulf Special, Zenith El Primero Stratos Flyback Striking 10th

    my guess is a typo by Orbita. Plenty of errors on the site, but it is still a great resource.

    No Ball 2893-2 exists.
    kind regards,
