    The winder mfg often has a website saying what they should be...

    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.
    Why can't you play golf with it?

    Substantial shocks cause the most damage to mechanicals. The watch is at the good end of a wood shot but there is still a lot of vibration. I'd not worry really. While not as good as a Lemania 5100, 7750s are fairly shock resistant.

    Mine (ceramic titanium aquaracer) just stops running one morning even if I use it daily. Service center tested it and found it okay. But they recommend that I should also need to manually wind it once a while because its too "sensitive" $*^#~+>!! So I guess "sensitive" means defective!!!

    I'm looking to pick up Monaco Grand Prix Carrera, which has the Calibre 16 movement. Is this an in-house movement?

    Re: TAG movements

    Caliber 5 is sw200 or 2824-2?
    How can I see the difference in a Aquaracer 300m with no transparent case back?
