    Re: TAG movements

    Valjoux 7750 movement is in car terms a American V8 engine...nothing wrong but not very modern. Not without reason without COSC.
    When reading this topic the Calibre 36 attracts me more and more.

    Don't get me wrong..i have a Carrera DayDate cal16 as well and love it!

    Many Valjoux 7750 family watches are adjusted to COSC standards... just as, to continue the analogy, many classic V8s are still used in racing. You can push fuel through them rapidly while they stay cool enough to keep running.

    Re: TAG movements

    Hello, I am looking for replacement parts for my Heuer. It is a 980-027 and the movement is an ESA Y2 900-231. The movement had been stored and the battery in it leaked. It's hard to beleive but the quartz parts are all ok. The problem is that one of the gears on the top of the movement, not the jewled side, is bad. I would like to get parts for it (mainly the gears) to fix it. Anyone have any ideas! I see I can purchase a new movement on ebay but I was really up for the challange of fixing this one. Should I just give up and get the new movement and move on? Any help greatly appreciated. thx

    You can buy a new movement for the part, if you wish. But I wouldn't, especially if you can get the same movement as a replacement.

    Intresting. I saw that one in a shop in Amsterdam 1 week ago and wonder why it looked like that. I prefer the old design.

    Yep, same here! Old one was more 'design', this one is more classic. Wonder why they changed it. Problems with the old one?

    A way to cut costs maybe because the original rotor is way, way more complicated than it needs to be and looks like it might actually be two parts that are held by those two screw like things.
    Could just be a false design but then it would still be an overly complicated finish.

    Normally, early adopters are often left feeling like they've been kicked in the gut as something things get cheaper and sometimes better later on in production but I have to say, in this instance, I'm glad I got mine so early. I managed to avoid two price increases and got mine before the UK re-instated VAT and design wise, I have the plainer dial which I prefer and now, the better looking dial.
    I am, as they say, a very happy bunny.
