Not sure who told you every 2 years, but almost every watchmaker I've talked to recommends a service every 5 years - even longer for modern movements with more efficient escapements, better lubricants, and materials. Good thing, because any watchmaker worth their salt is going to charge more than $100 (USD) to fully service even very simple automatic movements. Not trying to be a snob, but I'd be very wary of any watchmaker that quotes $50 to service a movement.

I have this watch and like it. It is a well-built automatic watch with a good quality hacking/winding movement. It is a good deal at this price.

I think it looks even better on a leather strap. (It takes 20mm straps, btw)

How long does the automatic movement last? 5 or 10 years? Does it eventually break? (assuming that you didn't drop it or abuse it). Thanks.

Generaly higer price movments need service every 2years if you want them to last and be precise. I have seiko automatics that were never serviced and last 10years an are in +-10sec a day range but if they brake i just buy a new watch. So if you buy sub 200$ automatic use it until it breaks rule. Service higer price movments cuz service is not so cheap (50-100$ and upwards)

Do one has to manually change the date almost every alternate month or it is taken care of by itself?

Check out watch forums and used dealers, and you'll see plenty of automatic watches from the '60s still going strong. Most brands recommend servicing every few years, but there are also stories of watches going 10 or 20 years without servicing and running strong. Those are the exceptions, though.

Plan to have it serviced every 3-5 years, and it should last you decades. That's part of the reason people are willing to pay thousands or tens of thousands for high-end automatic watches. It's something you can hand down to your children and your grandchildren.
