Welcome to the return of It's All About Watches (or at least the blog portion of the site). Magrette's 10th anniversary is upon us and to celebrate they have decided to release a number of watches to celebrate: a new Moana Pacific Professional Kara (limited to 1010 pieces), two special versions of their Leoncino (limited to 505 pieces for each version or 1010 in total), and finally the watch featured in this post (which has 4 variations of 500 pieces each). The variations of the new Moana Pacific Diver II are:
From what I read, it appears to be of similar or better quality when it comes out the factory (at least materials-wise). I'm nowhere near knowledgeable enough to speak on how it performs compared to the ETA. It doesn't appear to be an exact clone (though it is remarkably similar). Just comparing the STP1-11's technical drawings to the Seagull ST2130's (a 2824-2 clone) the former is .12mm thinner, for example. The differences are, but since ETA doesn't publish their technical drawings I can't say for certain one way or another.
The Moana Pacific Diver II is currently available for preorder on Magrette's website.
