Greetings, 

 

just wanted to clarify to anyone who is replacing a seconds wheel in their eta 2836-2/2834-2 movement that one from a 2824-2 will not work!!!! as it will not accept the seconds hand as the top pivot is shorter.  I did not know this even though I should have suspected it as the 2836 is thicker than the 2824 allowing for that extra height.  

 

I ordered a generic one on ebay which was advertised for  eta 2824-2/2836-2/2834-2 which I thought contained tallest one to suffice for each of these movements.  but they are not!!!!!

 

Yesterday evening I replaced the wheel that had recently arrived, in my 2836  but the post of my seconds hand l did not reach it!!!!  Just informing you all that you will have problems if you are in this situation.  Genuine ones may have been labeled differently, but I could only find generics .  Unless you can find a seconds hand with a longer tube, you might get away with this, but that is another problem if they are advertised as such but do not do the job.
