I like it, finding I like simple 3 hand movements more and more.

Interesting movement, I guess it's the successor to the 2824. It it supposed to use some new materials in the balance that reduce friction, possibly silicone, and it will power down the BPH from 28,800 to an energy saving beat both of which helps to increase the reserve. Looking forward to checking out the spec sheet. Interesting they'd kick it off in Tissot, a nice boost to the mid-line brand.
