Eta Caliber 2813

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.

Looks Chinese to me

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. However at a price of $20 it is usually just replaced instead of being serviced. I’ve had one running since 2017 and I am going to see how long it can last with annual service lol.

Really it stops. Where do you know? Are you a horologist? You are definitely wrong. Yes, there is QC problem but they work generally very well. Yours is a bias, and as far as I sense, your bias does not only cover watches in China. Very soon, Chinese manufacturers will take over the entire world’s production of automatic watch movements. This is inevitable. I wonder what you will say then? I’m not a lawyer for… Read more »

It is foolish and misinformed, but not racist. The Chinese are a strong, intelligent people. They do not need you to stick up for them.

What the world needs are more Chinese-designed watches, instead of copied “homages.”

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.!

You are definitely wrong. You are not definitely a watch lover. Watch aficionados never speak your style. Regardless of the quality of the watch, they do not fit eyelashes and mucus in it. In fact, you are expressing your anger towards the Chinese, you are racist and you are doing pornography. Yes, there is QC problem some in Chinese caliber production but they work generally very well. Yours is a bias, and as far as… Read more »

Chinese manufacturer will never take over the entire world’s automatic watch movements. First they must stop copy without innovation. They copy and make junk of the copy. This is copy of Miyota and they copy the name from ETA. Copy,copy,copy. I wonder do they also copy from each other others Chinese factories or only from outside China companies?

Chinese watch factories already make 65% of the world’s entire watch production. Calibers and fully build watches alike.

So you’re right, Demir, these Chinese factories won’t take over the globe’s watch production, because they already are inthe proccess to do this, very successfully too.

You sound like an angry man, is this because you’ve been upgraded at work to eyelash picking from shite watches?

No, I’m not an angry person. I just try to be fair, realistic and serious. I don’t like unfounded criticism, I don’t like those who pretend to know without knowing it. I am also retired and have a very prosperous life and hundreds of very precious hours. Except for my houses and my cars and my children and grandchildren, of course. If you work hard, you will too. Don’t mind it.

I have a 2813 that has been running very well a couple/three years inside a $80 Homage Hulk. It runs about 20 seconds slow in a week. It is quite a good workhorse movement for very little money.

It’s a hit or miss or movement. I’ve had excellent ones that run at +1 sec/day for years. Then I had another that had a modified GMT function which imploded within a month.
My advice, stick to the basic ones with just a date function, or even better just 3 hands.

This can happen with any movement. I returned a Selita SW200 because the rotor stopped winding and I own an ETA 2824 that runs 15 seconds slow. I wouldn’t bet against Chinese products of any kind. Witness Japanese cars and California wine. Both were considered subpar and now lead the world.

I have two very humble watches from China and they have this movement, no problem at all. I don’t wear them frequently and they are waiting mostly in my watch box even under these conditions no problem. No weird sound nothing when adjusting. I agree one of the views below sticks to the basic ones. Complicated mechanism production is another thing not for the Chinese market. Thus, if you will use this caliber, stay safe… Read more »

I’ve got a replica Sea-Dweller. I’m looking to buy a 2813. I like watches. Their provenance is not a deciding factor. If the DG2813 is a copy , what other movement might fit in my watch?
BTW CC is fabulous. So glad you’re here.

Eta doesn’t make the 2813. The 2813 is a Chinese movement. A self winding movement a cheap but worthwhile watch movement. I’ve several watches powered by this.
