Comparison: Sea-Gull ST2130, ETA 2824-2, Peacock SL3000

"Torsten, who is very active on the WUS Chinese watch forum, has asked me to compare three movements for him. The original, the ETA 2824-2, and the well known Sea-Gull ST2130, a Chinese clone, and the new Peacock SL3000, another Chinese clone.

I have a new Sea-Gull in stock, and Torsten sent me a Peacock. Thanks to Ron from Texas, I got hold of a used Fortis watch with an ETA2824-2, so we have to take into consideration that the ETA isn’t new, but used.

Test Plan
Before taking the movements apart, I will inspect both Chinese movements and take some microscope shots, then take all three movements apart, clean everything, take some component shots under the microscope, and then put the three movements back together. I will then test the performance of all three movements on the timegrapher."
