I won't use TK Maxx's specifications list, as theirs are nearly always wrong.

Only ever ordered one thing before from TKMaxx and it took them 7 days to dispatch (last year, pre pandemic) plus postage time. Might have been a one off, but its put me off ordering again. There has been talk that the dispatch times are to help protect the work force at the moment, which I am sure is the case, but in reality it appears this has just compounded the low numbers to start with.
Change the title of the deal; this has a Powermatic 80 movement, not an ETA 2824.

Powermatic 80 is 21600 beats per hour (bph) which is 6 ticks per second, with an 80 hour power reserve.
ETA 2824 is 28800 bph (8 per second) with approx 40 hours power reserve.

Think I got that from the A Blog To Watch reviewer (turns out he was a competition winner). Turned my computer off and went to bed...

Maybe I've read it wrong, as it says on Jomashop
"Tissot Calibre Powermatic 80 (C07.111) Automatic movement, based upon ETA 2824-2, containing 23 jewels..21600 vph" based upon is different, of course..
I did skim-read it and I was getting tired

They took the ETA 2824 and modified it, lowering the beat rate to 21600bph and increasing the power reserve to 80 hours. Someone would be disappointed if they bought this expecting at 2824 with 28800bph and got 21600bph, but some would appreciate the increased power reserve.

All I can say in my defence is I made more effort than TK Maxx did!

They have a Next Day Delivery option but seeing as TK only recently stopped having limited shopping hours on their website (9am-midday I think?), probably pointless at the moment. No Click And Collect yet...obviously

TK Maxx is one of the first shops I'll be visiting when we have "freedom". I barely even look at the girly jewellery, it's watches I gawp at. Thanks

I recall you're Glasgow area, so which TK Maxx do you prefer, for when I'm next up, as my local doesn't seem to do much in the way of watches, although can't say I've really paid much attention.

My nearest is Argyle Street, but both Glasgow city centre options are good (Sauchiehall Street is about fifteen minutes away by foot). Obviously it depends what they have in stock.

A bit further out from the centre are Silverburn (Pollok) and The Fort (Easterhouse) which are smaller stores - don't visit those often. There's also Coatbridge, Hamilton and East Kilbride, usually visit one of those when I visit my sister in Blantyre. There's a few others on the outskirts, you could do a round-trip if you're really determined

No, I'm not going to waste my time that much!

I know the city centre and Silverburn (thanks to the missus) well, although forgot about the one in Argyle Street. Love Glasgow and being in the city on foot, especially how under appreciated it is by those that have never been or only driven through on the M8 and turn their nose up. Prefer it to Edinburgh, although that is nice for a day trip (and the rugby!).

Shame about the empty gaps/shops from when I was last up in February (for the rugby), like most city centres, with the likes of Watt Bros closed and BhS still empty, but even around GOMA was looking a bit bleak. Guess in this day and age, most city /town shopping areas are too large and spread out for what is now needed. I remember there used to be almost 2 of the main shops in Glasgow, only 20 mins walk away, from Sauchiehall Street to Argyle Street, I think the Sauchiehall TK Maxx was originally M&S or Debenhams years ago, wasn't it?

You can easily cover the whole city centre by foot, I do it when I'm trying to find something in Poundland (!).

Really miss Watt Bros, there was one near my mum's too, sad to see them close, they were generations-old.

I think the old TK Maxx site on Sauchiehall Street was C&A* at one point. Or is it Primark (next door). Might have to look that up.

The TK Maxx in Argyle Street (was in the St Enoch Centre for years, then closed a few years before it came back across the road) was a 24 Hour Tesco Metro (you'd get all sort of dodgy characters in there in the middle of the night - not counting myself)! It's now the biggest store, on three floors, even though the Sauchiehall Street one opened first and is the oldest.

*I'm wrong, that unit was Dunnes Stores. I'll drive myself mad now trying to remember what it used to be. Sauchiehall Street is particularly run down, especially after having two fires in quick succession in the last year or so (it was partially closed off for months).

There was some spectacular graffiti on the BHS building but that's all been painted over and boarded up (would post a photo I took from a few years ago, but it's very rude).

Really like this, fantastic find Just wished they’d left the movement at 28,800 and had the lower PR. Definitely hot though!
