ETA Caliber 2813?

Eta Caliber 2813

What you may see listed as an ETA 2813 clone, is not actually an ETA clone at all. In fact, there is not an ETA 2813 to clone. It is also not an ETA 2824-2 clone.

The caliber 2813 is closer to being a Miyota 8215 clone, although there are some notable differences.

Caliber 2813 is a Chinese movement, apparently produced by several factories such as Dixmont in Guangzhou (also Mingzhu, Nanning NN2813, Beijing). This explains why the caliber number is often written as DG2813.

It is chinese. The most common automatic movement that comes out of China. Works for about a year then stops. Cleaning and lubricating it upon purchase will make it run for years.

Truly a trash movement. Had a Parnis with one. After about two or three months it started grinding like it was full of sand when I tried do wind and set the time. Should have gone for the model with the Miyota movement. It wouldn’t surprise me to find eyelashes, fingerprints and even snot when if I open the back [that’s more a critique of the overall product, but I venture to say the movement… Read more »

Believe me the miyota 8215 cant be any better.! That too feels like its full of sand when winding and has a jittery second hand between 10 and 30 seconds. Even to the naked eye its quite clear the second hand between 10 and 30 seconds is unstable. Keep to NH35 movements if available and you cant go wrong. A completely reliable and stable movement at a rock bottom price.!
