    Eterna vs. Maurice Lacroix Vs Fredrique Constant

    Hello,

    I know the brands in the title offer in house movements and high end mechanical watches. However, what I'm interested in is their entry level quartz watches, many of which can be had under the $300 price point. Does anyone here have experience with their quartz watches? I guess what I'm looking for is a taste of a high end brand at a quartz price point. Any pros and cons of either brand?

    all the three above, i'm more on Eterna looks.

    however, the three brand is not as high end as you think they are.

    anyway, for quartz its best you stick with Frederique Constant. They have plenty of new models as of late, while the other two has been stagnant.
    i have many many memory with many watches, but the only one that is worthy is my all time favorite - the Tudor Submariner 79090.

    Think that Certina is the only one of these 4 brands to sell a HAQ, High Accuracy Quartz.

    As far as actual movements are concerned...the info is a but scant....

    Eterna uses a Ronda 517...which is underwhelming....
    Maurice may be a 955 series which is a solid 3 hand eta
    Fredrique is listed as a FC-245 but doesn't say what base is...someone mentioned it's dimensions and jewel count matched up to a Ronda movement.....

    Does it have screw-in links?
