The Sellita SW210-1 is the main competitor to the ETA caliber 2804-2, but with an additional 2 jewels. The official release date of this movement is unclear. However, current documentation for this caliber is dated 9/20/2018, so this movement is at least this old.

SW210-1 VS SW215-1:

The caliber SW210-1 is based on the SW215-1. The only difference is that the SW215-1 has a date at 3:00 and the SW210-1 does not. Other than that, the specs are the same.

Finishes:

The caliber SW210-1 is available from Sellita in 3 different finishes: Standard, Refined, and Tailor-Made.

Standard Finish – Bulk sand-blasted and nickel plated. Options include engravings, blue screws, rhodium plated, gold plated.

Refined Finish – Bridges with Geneva stripes, main plate with circular graining, snailed crown-wheel, snailed ratchet, and rhodium plated. Options include engravings, blue screws, snailed barrel, gold plated.

Tailor-Made – Custom based on customer specs.

4 Grades of SW210-1:

Just like the the popular automatic caliber SW200-1, there are four grades of the SW210-1 manual wind movement:

  • Standard – adjusted in two positions; accuracy of +/-12 sec/day up to +/- 30 sec/day
  • Special (Elabore) – adjusted in three positions; accuracy of +/-7 sec/day up to +/- 20 sec/day
  • Premium (Top) – adjusted in five positions; accuracy of +/-4 sec/day up to +/- 15 sec/day
  • ChronometerCOSC criteria

Acceptable amplitude for all grades is 200 degrees min to 315 degrees max.

Power Reserve:

According to Sellita it takes a minimum of 23 turns to of the crown to wind this movement. Once fully wound, the average power reserve is about 42 hours.

I wish more brands would use this movement. So far I can’t find any, even in the microbrands. If you know one please let me know!

I received a Chris Ward C65 Trident and wound it 20 times and by midnight of the same day it stopped. Not sure if 22 winds for full 42 hours is accurate.

I wound it 20 times at 1pm yesterday and when I woke up this morning, it had stopped at 11:50pm last night. I rewound 35 times at 8 am this morning and will update on dead time. I will also update on future windings so hopefully you can have some real world information on this caliber. The booklet says 22 winds for 42 hours. I’ve also set to GMT so I can get an idea… Read more »

It ran 16 hours. Stopped at 12:01am after winding 35 times so I’ll try 40 today. After 12 hours of running it was 7 seconds fast but the watch is new so I’ll work with it for a few weeks and report back later. Maybe a proper breakin period is needed?

I wind mine about 50 or 60 winds. Wind it until it is tight. You can feel when it is about to stop.

Udpdate: wound it 40 times and it died at 30 hours. It runs 8 seconds a day fast. It’s new so I hope after a few weeks I get a little better accuracy. I wound 50 times today and I’ll report back on power reserve.

I’ve been following your power reserve posts and I’m just wondering how many winds does it take to go from 0 power until you can’t wind anymore? Thank you

I just tried this morning and it’s around 50. Once it breaks in I’m hoping to get a little more power reserve. They advertise 42 hours, the most I have gotten is around 30 hours. We’ll see what 50 winds does 🙂

Last update: 50 winds and it was pretty tight wing at the end, gave me 37 hours not 42 hours. I’ll monitor since I’m wearing a lot Right now and hope break in extends that reserve but you can figure winding it 30 times daily will get you to the next day and you’ll have to crank her up again.

Can a date wheel be applied to this sw210 movement?

From above: “the SW215-1 has a date at 3:00 and the SW210-1 does not”
Just get the SW215-1 that already has a datewheel.

Is it common that the second hand “pauses” while winding this SW210-1 movement? When I wind my CW65, I notice that sometimes the second hand momentarily stops.
