    And, all their quartz watches have batteries.

    I think he was asking "are all TAG mechanical watches self winding watches?"

    Re: TAG movements

    Has Tag Heuer ever used ISA (especially the 8171) movements in their formula 1 chrono series or in any of their watches for that matter?

    thanks!

    Heard from the TAG Heuer sales person that I need to manually wind my TAG Heuer Aquaracer [Valjoux 7750 movement] daily as part of the maintainance. Is that true?

    If you are a tennis pro or take batting practice every day, I am sure the automatic mechanism will keep the mainspring fully wound. If you mostly type on a keyboard, winding will help.

    I an never devastated if I have to take a watch in for repair. It means I get to wear something else and I get to spend a little time talking to my watchmaker who is a wonderful fellow. So my risk aversion is probably less than the sales person's

    Most of the time you will have no problems wearing a 7750 while playing golf or tennis. But if the watch gods are grumpy that day, you might. Decide what your own risk aversion is and act accordingly.

    Re: TAG movements

    Just wonder what will be the setting (TPD & direction) on the watch winder for my Aquaracer Calibre 16 (REF : CAP2110.BA0833)?
