I'm relatively new to automatic movements. Trying to learn though, thanks to this group.

I have a couple of automatics, one a Seiko Spork with a 4r15 movement, and the other an inexpensive Invicta Grand Diver with a 21 jewel Japanese movement.

My question is in the comparisons between the Miyota 9015 and the 2824-2 offered in the various models of Lumtec.

Can someone give me a good direction to go? Is one better than the other in respect to, sweep smoothness, reliability, durability, accuracy, power reserve, desirability etc...

And anything I might have overlooked to ask, or should be aware of.

Many thanks in advance. Happy Holidays, Mike

I'm not an expert, but I think you'll find that the 9015 is superior to the 2824 in just about EVERY respect, except that it's not Swiss. :confused1:

I would guess, at this price level, it hardly matters. Buy the style & functions and finish you like. It comes down to the old time tested war-horse (eta), or the new and possibly/probably, improved younger asian model. Word is to go with the new hot chick. I dunno. These aren't exactly hi-grade movements. They're both suitable to task. -(If I had my druthers, I'd get the 9015, but the watch I liked better had the 2824)- ...and it's always YMMV.

Sorry. Should have searched a bit more. Did find some good info on both movements after a little digging. Boils down to the outside more than the inside. Thanks for the replies!

I totally agree and to be quite blunt I don't personally like the 2824. I personally the "Swissness" argument in general in watches is largely horse hockey.

Just thought I'd throw in the the little C1 is remarkably accurate. Don't know what they did to that Russian twin barrel movment but God Damm!

As I posted elsewhere My M9 stayed within a second of the atomic clock from july 4th to the beginning of November and I wore it constantly, sometimes strapped to my stearing wheel.
