In case you didn’t hear, the Swatch Group is really tightening up the supply of ETA movements to those not part of Swatch Group. We’ve made educated guesses that this will force many manufacturers to either raise prices, or switch to other sources for their movements.
One brand that we like to keep an eye on, Prometheus, has a fairly detailed writeup on their plans here. I really recommend you give it a read, as I think it’s applicable to a lot of the smaller makes in the market. Also, you can get a handy comparison of what other movements are comparable to, say, and ETA 2824-2.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
