    Exclamation WatchSmith's opinions

    About to pull the trigger on a new watch. Options are sh3135 or Asian 2824. I would love to get the 3135 so the time sets in the correct directions. However, I don't want to buy something that's loaded with problems though. What is your opinion?

    Looking at replacement movements they're about the same price....an eta 2824 and sa3135.

    Thank you!

    I have an A2824 and it's brilliant! Strong, reliable & keeps perfect time and it's knocking on a bit now. I am lusting over the SH3135 but only because I'm a movement nut and it highly resembles the original, there have been issues as I understand it with power reserve but these can be overcome with installing a gen auto module (reasonably expensive upgrade) but you do also overcome the crappy reversing wheel problems at the same time?? As i understand it SA3135 is crap and I'd advise you to stay away from it. So if you're not fussed withe the look of your movement that is hidden from view anyway I reckon you can't go wrong with the A2824, it also has the benefit that when it does eventually fail you can swap it out cheaply for another or even upgrade to a gen ETA which is what I would do as I love my sub! Try swapping out an SH for gen LOL!!! Just my 2c ;-)

    The look of the 3135 is a plus but I was more concerned with setting the date going the correct direction since that's a big tell... but after wearing for 13 years nobody has checked the winding on my watch haha. I even asked one of our TD's and he suggested the 2824 (asian is only option)which is a cheaper watch.... so that should speak volumes. I'm also going to be getting this from BK who sells watches with genuine ETA movements exclusively. Probably the best choice is ETA 2824 from BK. My last rep from him that I got 13 years ago with a genuine ETA lasted all that time never needing a service..... so why tempt fate��
