Inside a Sandoz Submariner-like, ETA 2824

I did not post this as a review, since I think the pictures actually speak for themselves. That is why I placed this in the ARTICLES section of my watch site. You can "walk through" the whole dissection by clicking on each picture on each page or pick single pictures from the tabular overview below.

After the tour you might be "loaded' to read a bit more about the Little Engine that Could: An Indepth Look at the ETA 2824, a link to Hans Zbinden's great watch site where a friend of his reviewed the ETA 2892 and his little brother 2824. I received the information about those great articles from Jim Morell, thank you Jim!
