ETA SA is one of the best, if not the greatest company in watch movement history. Watch lovers around the world already heard about this massive manufacturer of watch movements.
‘ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse’ is a Swiss company that produces and develops quartz and mechanical watch movements. This giant has a long history that goes back to 1793 and today it provides ébauches and components for thousands of timepieces produced each year all over the world. ETA SA, owned by The Swatch Group today, crushed everyone on his path to success and has conquered the first place in the watch industry.
Many watch companies owned by Swatch Group utilize an ETA movement. However, more and more luxury watch manufactures nowadays produce watches with their own in-house movement. But why wouldn’t you buy a watch with a movement from a manufacturer that has such a good reputation and an even greater history than some watch companies? Anyway, there are many luxury watch brands which use ETA movements and some will never change because the costs to make in-house movements are high and the quality of ETA movements are very good.
if your luxury watch doesn’t function on an in-house movement, chances are high it’s an ETA one.
