Automatic watch movement Soprod A10.
This is a high grade automatic watch movement, the same build as Seiko 4L25.
All Soprod movements are made in Switzerland and must meet extremely strict criteria for precision before they make it into a watch. Their high frequency ensures excellent mechanical precision.
The Soprod “Alternance 10” (also called the A-10, A10, and A10-2) is a Swiss Made movement based on the Seiko 4L25 design but produced in Switzerland under license. It is an advanced, slim automatic movement with modern technology and is not a clone of the ETA 2892A2 with which it competes.
Although a Japanese design, it includes many signature Swiss features, including Incabloc Double-Cone shock absorbers and an oscillating pinion automatic winding switcher. It is exactly the same size as the ETA 2892A2, with the same locations for dial feet, crown, hands, and date window. This makes it a drop-in replacement when that movement is unavailable.
Seiko Instruments first designed their 4L25 to create an ETA 2892A2 competitor for the Swiss OEM market. Soprod announced their Swiss Made version, Cal. A-10, in 2004 and began offering it to Swiss watch makers.
The article is sold “as is” – any other parts that are not mentioned in the description or shown in the photos are not included with this movement.
All the movements in our offers are service or replacement parts meant to be used by professionals for watch servicing. The movements are handled and stored in different boxes or containers, operations that may affect their accuracy.
