Apparently the STP1-11 is very similar to the ETA 2824, but manufacturer specs claim 6 hours greater power reserve and the use of an extra jewel (26 total). Certain components may be Swatch-sourced according to a discussion of this movement I found elsewhere.
Thanks so much for the info about this RH !
Had thought it was a new version of the old Claro Semag CL888, but this sounds cool here. Thanks again !
Am liking how the watch mixes a few different styles in one. Looks like a watch you could go on an adventure with, or go anywhere with really.
Thanks for the opinions on this one everyone !
