Making Sense Of The Sellita SW200 Movement = ETA 2824-2?

Posted Image

The new NAUTILUS series has the SWISS SW200 from Sellita acording to some dealers

Nautilis Jumbo 1:1

MOVEMENT: Swiss SW 200 Autromatic Movement , 25J, 28800bph, Nickle Plated, Cortes de Geneve Engineered Bridges, Gold Plated Insginia Rotor As per the Genuine


From stuffler,mike:

SW 200 = ETA 2824
SW 220 = ETA 2834
SW 240 = ETA 2836
SW 300 = ETA 2892
and ((at Baselworld 2010))
SW 500 = ETA/Valjoux 7750.

Sellita for years worked in ETA movements. The SW 200 is a clone of the ETA 2824-2 with one jewel more. You might expect same performance.Brands that already use Sellita: Oris, Meistersinger, Nivrel, Limes, Invicta, Steinhart/Debraufre, Ocean7, Bathys, Schaumburg, Arctos, Nauticfish, MarcelloC, Chase Durer

Sellita, a company that became so specialized in the refinishing of movement blanks that they could offer nicer working movements than ETA for the same price.

The Zigmeister has always had good things to say about Selita movements too.

Sellita movements have a good reputation but they have the same problem as Asian etaclones...no parts (at least for now).

Confucius Say:
Any watch with no parts...sooner or later becomes parts.

He also say:
The difference between a dog and a fox is about five drinks. :animal_rooster:

At this point I'd rather have a Sellita mov't than a 'Swiss' ETA in a rep.

I'd be happy with these. Perhaps a service, and you're good to go..
