2824-2 eta movment

I do enjoy an open back. This 2824-2 is not as decorated as the H10 from Hamilton, but they are fun to just look at and nerd out.   The beat rate is higher making the second hand sweep much more smooth then the H10 ever so slightly.  Can't really tell unless you look for it.   Still a wonderful movment and I enjoy checking it out.

I think all mechanical and automatic watches should have open backs.

Ha ha ha,  i am sure rolex traditionalist will have a few words to say about that.    I dont own a rolex,  when I do we will see what I think.   I completely agree with you.   I like the not so elaborate to the gold inlay movements I dont own.   Open backs are beautiful for sure

Agree - my Raymond Weil Tradition from 2007 has an ETA 2824-2 - and an open case back - great movement.

·

Let me play devil's advocate: I cannot imagine why anyone, even those into auto movements like I am, could covet an open caseback for a, say, Miyota 8215 or a Chinese DL8281. As in, undecorated movements with nothing particularly special about them.

Discuss. I am not throwing stones - I just don't get it.

I absolutely understand what you are saying.   I think it is a marvelous example of engineering just looking at the movement decorated or undecorated.    Just cool to see wheels integrate and levers articulate pulling the crown out and things lock in place.   Ha ha ha ha like I said, nerding out.   

Simple functional movement is timeless  and in itself beautiful.  Kinda like an expensive figit spinner lol

I enjoy a nice open caseback when there is a beautifully decorated movement to be seen.

Here are a few examples from my collection - Enjoy!
