    Well, I thought there could be a mark or a clue that could lead to that information.
    For example having 25 or 26 jewels could help identify the movement.

    Re: TAG movements

    My tag heuer monaco has the Selita movement, a 59 jewels. The old monaco had 55. So there is a clue.
    Another clue could be the model nomber; CAW2111-0
    I belive that previous watches did not have the -0

    The most obvius is the Selita logo stamped on the movement. As is the movement model SW300 Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1371690310.870379.jpg

    Defenetly the case back helps identify wich movement is in your watch.

    Re: TAG movements

    Well, you can see throuh the caseback and you can easily identify the movement.
    the problem is when you are not able to see the movement inside. Maybe the reference number is a clue but I am not so sure.

    I saw an Aquaracer 500 yesterday and the seller (a local AD) wasn't able to tell if there is sw or eta inside. All he knew was that is Caliber 5 and could be sw200 or eta 2824, most probably sw200.

    Re: TAG movements

    Pretty certain at this point all Cal 5 movements are SW200.

    In this case we should ask Eeeb to update the details for the Caliber 5. Right now it says only 2824 as movement base and nothing about sw200.

    Cal 17 is an ETA 2894 so not in house.
    Cal 1887 is a Seiko-designed movement. From what I understand, Seiko provides some parts but TAG does the assembly and manufacture of some parts as well. Not completely inhouse in my opinion but close.

    Clarification.
    Seiko is one of the suppliers of one set of the (assortment) parts. Atokalpa and I have it in my head there's another one that I can't remember a name of, supply assortment parts along with Seiko.
    Also for clarification, TAGHeuer manufacture most of the major components of the 1887, not just "some".

    The 1887 is for all intent purposes, a manufacture movement.
