Founded in 1856 in Grange, ETA which stands for Elegance, Technology, Accuracy (in French, elegance, technology and precision) was originally a watch manufacture and not only movement. ETA first named "Girard & Schild" and then Eterna in 1906. In 1932 the manufacture Eterna is divided into 2, one structure will be dedicated to the marketing of finished watches (Eterna SA) and the other structure ETA will be dedicated to the blanks (the blanks are all the spare parts that make up the movement).
The Swiss manufacture ETA merged in 1978 with asuag, a group of Swiss manufacturers and in 1983 ASUAG and SSIH were forced by their banks to merge. This merger gives rise to a new holding company, The Swatch Group.
ETA is currently the leading movement producer in Switzerland. On the one hand for all watchmakers of the Swatch Group, but also for other brands such as ours. The Swiss manufactureETA now produces 75% of Swiss mechanical movements.The quality of its movements has allowed the current fame of many watchmakers.
The ETA Swiss caliber 2824 was born in 1972, then from 1982 will be perfected and undergo many modifications: rubies will go from 17 to 25 with frequencies ranging from 18,000 to 36,000 alternations per hour.
Known for its reliability, precision and durability, the movement ETA 2824-2 is a guarantee of quality as well as a true classic within the watch industry.
