    I don't have any ETA movement watches, but I've been very pleased with my watches running 4r36 and 6r15 seiko movements as well as my oris with the soprod a10 movement and even my miyota 9015 watches.
    I dont know much about precise movement manufacturing locations, but I haven't heard anything bad about the sellita movement yet.

    Make it hurt so bad, 'cause it feels so good when you stop.

    I have a WAN2111 Aquaracer that has always run within COSC standards and after a recent overhaul by TAG it now runs +2 seconds per day. It has a SW200 movement.

    I have a fairly new Bulova Calibrator with the SW200-2 and the rotor bearing has quite a bit of play since day 1. If you gently tap the watch, the rattle sound is quite bad, to the point I don't wear the watch much (maybe 6 times in the last year). I checked the rotor for play and it's the bearing as the rotor can be moved 1mm+ on the horizontal plane. The screw holding the bearing is tight. Needless to say I am disappointed in the QC. I've had 50+ mechanical watches over the years and had high hopes for the SW200, but not exactly impressed, I even passed on buying several new watches that had the SW200 because of this. From what I researched, the SW200 has had reports of noisy bearings.

    I will agree with other posts that the movement is quite accurate and it starts working as soon as you pick it up and has good power reserve. I'm hoping I had a bad example, but for the price of the watch I expected better.

    I have various ETA 2824-2 (and ETA 2836) movements in my other watches and I prefer the ETA as I have not had any problems with them other than occasionally regulating them.

    All mechanical movements are superior to Quartz.
    All Asian movements are inferior to Swiss.
    Selita are inferior to ETA
    ETA are inferior to in-house
    TAG Heuer are inferior to Heuer
    TAG Heuer & Heuer are inferior to Tudor.
    Tudor are inferior to Rolex.
    Rolex are inferior to Patek Philippe.

    I know I am right because marketing and forum snobs tell me ;)

    Is this still true for brands like Tissot or Hamilton or even Swatch where ETA are essentially in-house movements?

    The same question could be asked about Oris when they were part of the Swatch Group.

    I believe The Monaco 211p uses Sellita movement.
