I was thinking the other day how many brands, both big and small, have no choice (for a variety of reasons) but to use commercially available movements from third parties. I'm specifically thinking about mechanical movements, though I guess the same would apply to quartz movements. If you were in their position and had to build and design a new watch using a current, easily available movement , what would it be and why(i.e. ETA 2824/2893/6497, Soprod A10, Miyota 9015, Seiko 6r15, Seagull st36, etc.)?
Personally, I like what I've seen from the new Miyota movements and I think you could build a pretty cool watch around the 9130. It seems to be a well made, modern movement, with good specs; not to mention I have a thing for power reserve indicators.
WUS, what would you choose and why?
