Our favorite giant auction site now has HANGZHOU 6460 movements which is a Chinese 2836-2 movement with GMT complication.
Very honest they admit that the GMT 2836s we see are all fake as ETA doesnt make such a movement.
Good news for watch builders.
Now the question is if it is worth it to swap out all of those DG3804s, is an ETA clone with GMT better than a Miyota clone with GMT?
I see them auctioning without buy it now startingaround $5, probably trying to figure out a market price, but if the 2824 clones are indication they will probably settle around $50-75 while the fake ETAs are still asking $210, hopefully this will destroy their market and expose the lie.
quote from one auction:
"Do not buy Fake Movements. Most of ETA 2836-2 GMT movements on sale at Ebay are from dubious origin. ETA does not produce a 2836-2 GMT, they are modified by someone with Chinese parts. Get instead a 100% Genuine movement - Guarantee!!
HANGZHOU makes the reliable 6460 GMT movement that is a clone of ETA 2836-2 GMT and a full replacement for SWISS MADE ETA 2836-2 GMT. Size and fitting is 100% accurate and it is a direct replacement. If your watch is broken or requires a new movement get this HANGZHOU 6460 GMT that will cost you less than a repair of your Swiss ETA 2836-2 GMT. You can even store your ETA 2836-2 GMT movement and use instead this reliable HANGZHOU 6460."
