What are the benefits of the 2824 versus an NH35?


You can also find my initial response a bit unexpected.
I am honestly a massive fan of the NH35 Swiss made dive watch   much like I am a massive fan of my Honda Civic with 178,000 miles on it.

You pretty much can not kill an NH35.
So, the first thing I might say is that in case your motivation to do the Swiss Package is progressed reliability and accuracy, it is not likely you will see any real difference among the two.
That is in part why we are not calling this an “improve.”


That said, there are definitely motives to want the 2824.
The comparison to the Honda Civic is pretty truthful I assume. The NH35 expenses a third to a fourth of the 2824 and is utilized in probably 70 percentage of the cheap automated watches made nowadays.
It’s reliable, however arguably pedestrian.
The 2824 is the Mercedes to the NH35’s Honda… Unlikely to be more reliable but with less luxurious and prestige.
Iconic German metallic as opposed to Japanese solidity and ease.


But dude, it is Swiss!
Everyone friends watches with Switzerland.
And there is ideal cause to achieve this.
The Swiss construct some (if not maximum) of the satisfactory made watches in the international.
Watchmaking and Switzerland go collectively like, well, Germany and motors.
From a status factor of view, understanding your movement is Swiss has a real value — in particular if you are telling someone else approximately your watch.

There are some particular, tangible features of the 2824 which can be in reality an improvement over the NH35.

We did not positioned an exhibition (glass) case lower back at the NH35 version for a reason (even though a few producers do).
The NH35 isn’t much to observe. It does not have any decoration (things like etchings or blued screws) to make the motion attractive. The 2824 does.
The rotor (which winds the watch) is tons greater appealing.
The plates and screws are often adorned.
Now, we haven’t decided the entire decoration level of the 2824 we will be the usage of, however for sure it will be extra than any NH35.
This is why we are adding an exhibition case again to the 2824 package.

Another difference is the VPH.
That stands for Vibrations Per Hour.
That is how typically the mainspring, which drives the mechanics, oscillates in an hour.
The NH35 is 21,600 vph and the 2824 is 28,800.
There is debate as to whether or not that improves accuracy.
Again, I even have determined the NH35 to be pretty accurate.
But there’s one thing that the VPH honestly has an effect on and that is the sweep of the second one hand.

Unlike a quartz watch, a mechanical timepiece’s second hand doesn’t tick as soon as per second however sweeps across the dial.
Now, there certainly are ticks, but they are so near together and so rapid you get the phantasm that the second one hand sweeps without any hesitations.
Why does VPH count number?
Put absolutely, the decrease the VPH, the extra stutter can be important in the 2nd-hand motion.
So, the 2824 is going to have a smoother second-hand sweep than the lower VPH of the NH35.
On this one, I will say it is a important difference for those who know what they’re searching out and not so much for the casual observer.

All of that stated, my non-public Berlin Wall watch can have a 2824 in it.


If I am leaving anything out, please chime in. Correct me if wanted. And actually some of this is very plenty a rely of opinion.

Vostok-Europe Mriya AnaDigi Watch 9516/5554250
My Vostok-Europe Mriya (Red & Black version) is notable. I love the mix anaoluge virtual features at the watch, in addition to the specific way the watch’s motion mechanism works (it is electric powered, now not mechanical in this case, because of the virtual functions incorporated into the movement). The silicone straps are top notch comfy and soft, and I additionally love the reality that the straps are interchangeable with the supplied leather-based straps as nicely. The way the straps are connected to this watch are very precise – I haven’t visible straps connected with Allen key bolts before on any other watch logo. Very easy to exchange straps the use of the supplied Allen key screw driving force. Not sure I wanted a water resistant case with this watch although. The massive, cumbersome black container is cool and useful for storing and displaying the watch, but it takes up quite a few room on my watch cloth wardrobe, and I don’t assume I’d use the box for some thing else both. Nonetheless, very cool and particular! Craig and Krystina at R2A Watches are very quality human beings and really easy to cope with, and because I had an excellent revel in with them buying my Mriya watch I also lately purchased from them a Vostok -Europe Lunokhod2 Chrono to add to my watch collection as properly. R2A Watches does no longer dissappoint. Vostok-Europe does now not dissappoint. You’ll be very happy each with the service and the products. Thanks R2A Watches! Ted Boruta

At 42 mm in diameter, it’s miles a little at the small facet. I do choose watches 45-50 mm in diameter. Nonetheless, I am proud to very own and wear this beauty!
