    Typical example of how poor the computer geeks are at managing change, the concept of 'right first time' doesn`t exist in their world.

    Sorry to hear about your loss.

    I think Padders has covered everything on this one, not much more I can add. I own a similar watch with a deep blue dial.

    A common problem with ETA 2824 movements. There are two reversers and if one sticks itíll cause the rotor to spin when the watch is hand- wound. Itíll also compromise the auto- winding efficiency.

    Just buy something from the era of your birth, don't get hung up on the exact year, and don't be tempted to buy a watch you don`t really like simply because you believe it to be birth-year.
