    i need WUS help

    how does perrelet compare to oris interms of movements and finish and quality

    the two watches i was looking at was oris big crown

    and the perrelet peripheral

    and also is this perrelet an in house movement, as much as the 8500 is and omega in house? in other words not just a modified generic movement?

    Hello and welcome. Oris is a brand that is often mentioned when the topic of value arises. They were once supplied movements by ETA but their current movement supplier seems to be Sellita which is arguably just as good as ETA as they were designed to be a drop-in replacement.
    Perrelet are known to create some head turning/funky designs also based on ETA movements however the brand seems to be a bit more obscure because the love/leave nature of some of their designs.
    I am the owner of an Oris BC3 just to disclose fully.
    Enjoying a life far better than I deserve...

    Regarding the Perrelet, a Google search turns up this article that you'll want to read :

    Introducing The Perrelet Peripheral Double Rotor, Complete With A New In-House Movement (Live Pics, Specs, Pricing) — HODINKEE - Wristwatch News, Reviews, & Original Stories

    They talk about the movement :

    Speaking of which, like we mentioned above, the new A10 caliber is a completely in-house manufacture-made movement. Perrelet works with other Festina Group brands to produce the movements at the Soprod facility, but it has been designed by them, for them, from the ground up.

    Sounds like a very similar relationship to Omega and their in-house movements made by ETA.

    A couple of other things - I would hardly call a good ETA (or Sellita or Soprod) a "generic" movement just because it isn't any brand's in-house movement. There are people who prefer them and there are good reasons for that (cheaper, easy to service, better reliability, etc.). You might want to do some research, as the "in-house = better" is not always the point of in-house.
