I was hoping someone could educate me on the movement differences between Hamilton and Tissot.
Specifically I'm talking about the Tissot Lelocle Chronograph, I believe this has the Valjoux 7750 in it. I purchased the piece last year and am quite familiar with it.
Last night I purchased a Hamilton Khaki Officer Auto Chrono, this piece also has the Valjoux 7750 in it. Obviously the Hamilton has one less hand (no small second hand). But upon inspecting the back of the two watches, there appear to be additional differences.
I was hoping someone could shed some light on this, what are the differences? I know there are "different" grades of the same movement, but the best explanations I've seen are that higher end models are "finished" better. Well what exactly does that mean? More precise? Different cutting of the gears? There are definitely some differences to the workings on these two watches despite them supposedly having an identical movement.
