Seiko designs excellent movements
They sure do! Just wish this whole in-house scam would get over itself already and we can have TAG purchasing the design of a good three hander movement they could replace the cal 5 with.
I mean, all they have to do is put a bit of work into finishing the SW200. IWC, Breitling and many others have managed to do it at similar price points...
Welcome to the forum! Great collection, really liking the looks of your 160th Anniversary Carrera Sport "Dato".
Nice collection and welcome to the nicest watch forum on the internet.
Yes, I like the Calibre 1887! TAG Heuer rightfully got the IP rights and improved on it. So what’s wrong with that? It’s not that they stole it or hacked it.
It very similar to what happened to the A90/MkV/GR Supra which net trollers call a rebadged BMW. It’s BMW parts made by TOYOTA. The Calibre1887 is Seiko technology, parts which are now made by TAG Heuer & rightfully a TAG Heuer. If one knows watch history, all movements back then were the same, shared by different watch manufacturers. It’s such a shame this movement is not available anymore.. are there Calibre H01 watches still being sold by TAG Heuer?
And Yes welcome sir @CL1860 , I probably know what the 1860 is all about Welcome to the HOME of TAG Heuer collectors & enthusiasts
Nothing except the way they tried to pass it off as an in-house design.
Mainly my post was more to point out that Seiko's design ended up being nicer than TAG's true in-house effort that was meant to succeed it.
Agree sir @abrod520 TAG Heuer is a maverick in marketing but this time, the marketing / publicity team went over board. JC Babin even had to make a statement, apologize and clarify it. I can clearly remember those times since I’ve been a long fan of the brand and it was the start of my TAG Heuer watch journey back then
Thanks for letting me join the forum.

Welcome to the forum Ryan, head over to tagheuerenthusiast.blogspot.com and read read read!
Ever since I had a new battery installed about a year ago I've noticed the red chrono needle won't line up at high noon, but oh well.
That can be adjusted on a quartz. Just use the chrono buttons with the crown pulled out.
Thanks, never thought to look into that. all set. Pull out crown, push top and bottom buttons, use top button to set!
Welcome, mine says hi
Hi and many thanks for the forum and all folks / knowledge therein.
I've started already but will place my apology for being a bit of a bull in a china shop. I'm not very good at the subtle sensitive stuff so please forgive me in advance if i offend in any way. It is not my intention.
