man this is great stuff!  i was alway curious about the whole glucydur balance wheel...i know glycine always used them...i once had a beat up very plain looking glycine on the back it said commpressor...it really did'nt look like much but i could'nt believe how accurate it was and the reserve was fantastic! is it the steel they use in these wheels or design or maybe the way they temper them? it seems like this glucydur balance wheel makes noticable difference...even in a cheaper watch...great postThumbsUp02.gif

If you read the specs on a Mido it will be much clearer. The amunt of work they do with the -2 is amazing.

All the added modifications, balanced and super nice when running
My Tutimas, running a mod 2824 or 2836 really, seems so easy to start from dead, just runs whenicking up and minor shake. Good read

I have a few eta based watches and find my tudor hydronaut the best time keeper, what do tudor do to the movements to make them so good, it also has not been serviced in eight years!

No I'm in agreement the moderfied eta movements in my experience keep perfect time and the standard out of the sealed packet ones also keep good time, in the years I've been collecting watches I've found them better than rolex (except 1520/65) and also the modern patek's, I suppose they have had years to get them perfect.

Glad you are still in the search for the specs and differences.

Glad you still have the pic of my Doxa.

Have a good one...
