    Yes, these movements can be COSC certified, it just adds to the cost.

    I saw the several pictures of the both movements and they were identical to me. So you guys are basically arguing for the difference that most of you would not even able to detect, if there is any.

    The only difference would be, one is a sunrise, while the other is a sunset. Maybe it's time for change of generation.

    Why, after all this time of its being used, are we still discussing the Sellita SW-200 movement? It's just as good and as capable, as are the other Sellita movements, as any ETA movement. For crying out loud, Sellita made movements for ETA for years.

    What engine do you think is in my 500M Aquaracer Chronograph? ETA or Sellita?

    Would you be surprised if I told you I don't care? It runs at +1 spd. Whatever movement is in it you can't get much better than that.

Then obviously now Swatch has decided that even though they made Oris use them... now they won't be able to. So I guess Oris will.go back to what they used to do very well, make their own movements.

    My humble update as it happens to be my 2 most favorite watches each have a ETA 2824 and SW200 movement - my Sinn U1-T from 2016 has the SW200 movement and it only gains about 1 second off the wrist in a day and losses maybe .5-1 second a day on the wrist (my most accurate timekeeper). However, my WCT100 with the ETA2824 (elabore grade as I'm told) is an abysmal +24 seconds a day, but consistent no matter which position the watch is in. I know it really goes down to luck of the draw but my WCT1000 is not a gleaming example for ETA timekeeping - one of these days I'll get it regulated but for now I just deal with it.

    Well, Oris uses Sellita movements at the present. They have developed their own movement but it is available only in their higher tier models at the present.

    Great looking watches! I am a huge Sinn fan but have only owned the UX. The U1 is on my "someday" wish list.

    If I can be honest, I love the fact that Sellita and Soprod have allowed independent watchmakers to flourish. Probably the best thing that ever happened was when ETA decided not to sell movements outside of the SWATCH group anymore. That decision forced European watchmaker, especially, to either start making their own in-house movements or source their movements from Sellita or Soprod. Yes, it was painful at first but, in the long run, it has proved to be a very successful situation for everyone.

    For what it's worth, I've had ETA and Sellita movements that were excellent and I've had ETA and Sellita movements that were stinkers. Like I wrote above, I really don't know what is running my Aquaracer but, whatever it is, it's running at +1 second per day. I'll take that all day every day.

    Just to put in my .2 cents I have a Sinn U1 and a Tag Calibre 5, both use the SW200. Both of these are very consistent on my timegrapher @ +2 spd and +3 respectively. I have numerous ETA's and they all perform very close and in some cases not so close with the exception of the COSC ETA's in my collection. All of the SW200's I have ever owned have been extremely accurate and I have had zero problems with them. On the other hand I haven't really had any issue's with any of my ETA's either.
