  1. Artistmike, Looking at other forum topics regarding this piece seems to have skewed thoughts. However, I'd have to say that you gave the most honest and unbiased answer I've ever read regarding any watch on any other site/forum. Kudos to you for that. I appreciate your honesty. Keep up the good work!
  2. How would you rate RW? Is it worth the investment or should I go more main stream i.e.) Tag Heuer, etc. ?
  3. I actually found a good post here as to why a company would use an SW200 over an ETA 2824-2 movement. Interesting article: http://www.ablogtowatch.com/making-sense-of-the-sellita-sw200-movement-same-as-eta-2824-2/
  4. Also, is it fair to say that this is a good watch in terms of movement, design, and aesthetics for the price? Should I expect a lifetime out of this watch?
  5. Hi artistmike, Thanks for the response. Very simplistic and straight-to-the-point-answer. I appreciate your input. When you state, "tried and tested," does this mean that it is as equal-to or greater than the ETA movement?
  6. Hi ThomasR and Jeremy, Thanks for the responses. I guess my overall question, "Is the SW200 a good movement?" When you state that this is an ETA clone, are you meaning this is an in-house movement replicating the Swiss ETA? The SW200 has to be Swiss as it would be against Swiss standards to list "Swiss Made" on the watch if it were not. If you were to put the movement up against ETA, how durable is the engineering design compared to the ETA if it's a clone? Also, I'm not really fond of the word "clone" as it would be falsely representing a movement that stole a patent from ETA. This would be considered illegal. Is it possible that the design is similar to ETA, but very different in regards to movement?
  7. Guys, I love the aesthetics of this watch. The two-tone is not overwhelming as there is a great proportionate combination between the two colors. The black face is really nice. I love the skeleton at the 12 O'clock. The band feels much better quality than my Tag Heuer Carrera and Aquaracer. I'd have to say that I really love this piece. The engineering behind this simple, classic, classy, piece was carefully thought out. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase. It looks wonderful on my wrist and already got a dozen comments on wearing this piece. Let me know what you guys think? If anyone can provide me more insight on its movement that would be greatly appreciated as I don't know Raymond Weil products all that well.
  8. Thanks Taffyman and Elliott. Glad there are knowledgeable people here that really enjoy watches and give honest opinions. Especially those who are experts and collectors alike.
  9. I agree. I think they are both really nice pieces. Would you be more inclined to wear one over the other (favoring one over the other?)?
  10. Other opinions on the watch I posted? I would say 98% of people I ask about this watch tell me that it's ugly. Is it really that bad looking? I also have a Movado 800 Series Chrono and I was told that it looks better than the new Tag Heuer that I posted. Is it true? Tell me what your thoughts are please.
  11. Thanks Lilmax, I agree that looks and tastes change as we age. I do like the solid black in the Movado that I have. I also have a Wittnauer swiss quartz that is all black. What style of watch would you say looks more elegant and proper stating that they're both divers watches? I like style and a little bit of flashiness and I'm not sure which style watch stand out over the two. I already have an all black watch that I like a lot and got years out of it, but thought that I would switch it up and go towards a different kind of style with the Tag.

  13. Thanks everyone! IMO people who do not know watches tend to go for the more contemporary style of fashion provided by guess, Michael Kors, Invicta, etc. There is no real workmanship put into those fashion-based watches. I completely admire the work and engineering behind this watch for its elegant look, beauty, and movement. Those who thought this watch was ugly are friends of mine wearing Invicta and G-Shock. I'm not an expert on watches, but I'm really starting to get into collecting them and learning more about them. On a side note, my friend has an invicta with automatic, self-winding, movement that replicates a Rolex Oyster. He doesn't care about the craftsmanship or anything about the watch, except it looks like a Rolex that he bought for under $100. Take a look: Invicta Rolex Oyster Invicta Replicating TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500m (the one I just bought). My main argument is that, yes, Invicta and other fashion brands steal the style of other Luxury brands of watches, but they do not carry the craft, art, history, movement, and elegance as Luxury watches. When I wear my watch it feels rather special to me. Not like an Invicta, but like a Tag Heuer! Also, Trigger, I agree with your statement. The gold could be a little more darker on this watch which would make it stand out even more; showcasing it beauty!
  14. I just got the same watch, but in a different color.
  15. This is my first Luxury watch and I am very excited to share my experience with you all. This is the two-tone TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500m Ceramic/18k Gold Bezel Calibre 5 with 18k gold two-tone bracelet. Some people compliment it but others just strictly do not like it based on the color. However, this piece is unique and I'm in love with it. What do all of you watch enthusiasts think about it?
