    No, there is no Calibre 18 (although a prototype of the Calibre 1887 I saw was marked "Calibre 18")

OMEGA), I'd assume that most of the changes are cosmetic.
    I recall some years ago reading a review in Watch Time of the Calibre 16 Aquaracer when it first came out. Scored highly in all areas except movement. Biggest complaint was that for a watch at this price point, all they'd done was engrave 'Tag Heuer' on the rotor of a stock standard 7750. I'd imagine this is fairly consistent throughout the core range.

    A number of the members of the forum are far more knowledgeable than many who write for watch magazines. The magazines are interesting but they usually consist of professional writers who often write for effect. To claim TAGHeuer's efforts on the Valjoux 7750 consists only of replacing the stock ETA rotor with a TAGHeuer rotor might be a reach...

    My complaint would be that they were still using a 7750 at all...

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I've always been curious on the grade of ETA movement TAG Heuer uses for non-chronometer models. Jewelers have all said "the top of the line", but I'm kind of dubious. Does anyone have info on this?

    TAG never says what grade they start with... Indeed, they never claim they start with ETA's chronometer grade for their chronometers. The ability to adjust a movement is more a reflection on the skill, time and effort of the watchmakers than it is a reflection on the grade of movement that is started with.

    I have a Calibre S limited edition watch that I enjoy greatly. It does have play in the minute hand, by design, which was a bit off-putting at first.

    Initially I found the method for setting very inconvenient for travel across timezones, but once I became used to it the Calibre S has become my favorite international travel watch.

    I am thinking about buying the Calibre 1 Vintage Carrera, so my choice of travel watch may change (no date or anything else to muck up when crossing oceans).
