laxx Posted March 25, 2015 Report Share Posted March 25, 2015 (edited) Very happy with mine, although I still wear my older one often to prevent wear and tear on the new one. The 2500D has a 3-level coaxial escapement that is improved over the previous version, and wont get gummed up as easily as the 2500C with 2-level coax. This makes the 2500 movement closer to the 8500 in-house movement, although the 2500D is still a highly modified ETA 2892 (which in itself is capable of meeting COSC specs and competing with the Rolex 3135 depending on the grade and finish). ----- A shot of the 42mm Explorer II from my trip to NC last December. Thanks for the info! I was curious to what grawk was referring to as the watch I posted has the 8400 movement.
