ETA caliber 2895-2 is a Swiss made automatic watch movement with 27 jewels and a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 beats per hour). The notable features of the 2895-2 are its small seconds subdial at 6:00 with a date.

According to dates found on official technical documentation, this movement has been in production since at least 6/2005 8/1995.

The 2895-2 is available in 3 grades depending on the requirements of the watch it is being used in: Elabore, Top, or Chronometer. Learn more about ETA movement grades here.

2892A2 Architecture:

The 2895-2 is based on the 2892-A2 framework. Therefore, both movements share the same diameter, although the height is different: 4.35mm for the 2895-2 and 3.6mm for the 2892-A2.

The dial feet and date window positioning are also the same, but the length of the dial feet is different. For this reason, some movements will include a dial distance ring with 2 fixing screws.

While dials for each are not interchangeable due to the small seconds pinion, a blank 2892A2 dial could be theoretically modded to be used with a 2895-2 – but also keep in mind the dial feet length mentioned above.

The difference in overall movement height may create a challenge when it comes to case compatibility.

Power Reserve:

The 2895-2 has a runtime of about 42 hours on a full wind.

When turning the crown manually to wind the mainspring, it takes at least 65 turns to reach full power reserve. With the automatic winding mechanism, it takes about 1,000 turns (or 1.5 hours of continuous motion).

Replacement Prices:

At the time of this caliber listing, prices for raw 2895-2 movements were found online for $350 USD. Keep in mind that ETA movements are no longer available to buyers outside of the Swatch Group conglomerate of watch brands, so you can expect new old stock movements to be offered at inflated prices.
