Noted but not yet documented, the Fossil STP 1-11, a superb clone of the ETA 2824 that Christian the watch guy likes better than the original:

I prefer the STP 1-11 over the ETA 2824-2 for the following reasons:

  • very nicely finished
  • movement markings better executed than on the ETA
  • jewelled barrel bridge

So what we have here is an improved classic with the performance we are used to, and added longevity. What’s not to like?

 

This is a huge deal, at least if Fossil can make enough: ETA has choked supply, I hear that Miyota 9015 and Sellita and Soprod A-10 are all hard to get, so a new entrant that's better than the ETA would be just wonderful.
