May 15th 2010 12:03AM I really wish people, especially people who write for a living, would use proper grammar, but apparently, that's not stylist anymore.
Dec 31st 2009 7:02PM I would suggest you take a look at this again. I have been a watchmaker (I make one of a kind movements from scratch as well as the cases and bracelets) for twenty years and having personally spoken with some at ETA this month, they will continue to supply completed movements to competitors, but not ebauches. I'm wondering if the person who writes articles likes this knows the difference or just spews what he think he knows. An ebauche is a movement blank; it is an incomplete movement ready for modification by an outside watch company.
You will continue to see completed ETA movements like the 2824-2 and the 2892-A2 around in abundance. Sellita is also booked solid for the next three years, so have fun getting one of those unless you want to cannibalize a watch.
This is what really annoys me about people: they think they have all this wonderful information about watches, yet know none of the proper definitions and have never made a watch in their life. Get it right next time. Stop thinking you know everything.
