Eta Caliber G10 211

The ETA caliber G10.211 is a Swiss “assembled” quartz chronograph movement with 4 jewels. This movement is part of ETA’s Fashionline group of quartz movements. This caliber is not considered to be a repairable movement and is largely found in entry level lower priced timepieces.

Crown/Stem Removal:

To remove the crown, look for the stem release hole on the movement near the crown There is a small arrow pointing to it. Putting the crown to date setting position should reveal a button in the hole that you can gently press with your tool to release the stem. Do this carefully and do not press too hard. If you damage the stem release mechanism, there doesn’t seem to be a way to fix it since it’s encased in plastic.

Metal Plate:

The metal plate on the G10.71A is just a thin cover with sticky adhesive. Below this metal cover you will find an plastic encasing that holds everything together.

This is what the movement looks like below the metal cover:

Utilized in the Victorinox Chrono Classic. Mine is almost supernaturally accurate. It hasn’t gained or lost even a tenth of a second in three months. That’s well within quartz chronometer certification standards. Not too shabby for a conventional quartz movement!

I have this movement in an Atlantic chronograph. Besides changing a battery after a couple of years, it’s been very reliable and quite accurate.

A invicta costuma usar maquina Ronda Z60, 540D ou Hattori VD53. Mas o 11020 vem com este movimento.

Don’t let the ETA stamp fool you. This G10 quartz movement is total unserviceable welded shut piece of junk. You’re better off with a Ronda or even a Miyota or Seiko quartz before buying any watch with a G10 shitter.

I have a Tissot PRS200 which uses the G10.211 movement and owned it for around 17 years without any kind of problem.

Same experience here. I’ve had my Tissot PR50 for 12 years and it’s incredibly accurate and trouble free (within a second of exact after months).

It may be a welded-shut piece of junk, but I’ve had mine in a Victorinox Summit Chrono (it was used when I bought it) since 2004. It’s never lost more than 1 second a month, often going several months perfect accuracy: +/- 0.0 seconds. I use the USNO Naval Observatory time as my standard.

Never had a problem. The other brands you mention are well regarded, though.

It does the job. Tells time VERY accurately. And lasts!. Not it’s not pretty or expensive. Anything past that is esoteric and only relative to people looking for more than just a nice watch.

Your comment got a lot of thumbs down but I agree after seeing a similar caliber with the cover removed. I commented on it here https://calibercorner.com/eta-caliber-g10-71a/

Does anyone here know why this movement is discontinued and what’s the difference between the G10.211 and G10.212? T.I.A.

I recently purchased a pair of Tissot chronograph from poshmark. Thinking I would find the quality quartz movements of 30 years ago . I invested $400. For a seastar and T-race chrono. Both with G10211 ETA movements. What junk !!

After 6 years the chronograph stooped functioning in my Tissot rks-bc 43682. And talking with a watch service specialist he told me that is not very reliable especially the chronograph. It’s true that I have wear it few times while going with my bike in the city, but nothing crazy.

Check with a local watchmaker if you have one close and ask for an estimate to fix. There may be a simple connection issue or ask how much to replace this quartz movement. This movement is still available at watch supply stores at approximately $60 and could be sourced by you or the watchmaker, depending on which would be cheapest. The watchmaker would then simply switch out the movement. Cheaper than buying an entire new… Read more »

I have this movement in a Victoronox Officer Chronograph and it keeps excellent time with almost non existant corrections.
