    Pequignet Moorea Elegance

    I have been doing some research into the Pequignet brand recently and it seems to get glowing reviews from all the experts. They apparently have in-house movements but also use ETA movements. The Moorea Elegance in particular has really caught my attention and is also within my price range (less than £1000) but I have not been able to find any information on it.

    Does anyone here know much about this watch? Does it have an in-house movement or an ETA movement? Is it reliable, accurate, etc.?

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Never erd of them. Movement is an Indtec A10 (source Moorea Elegance 41mm - Pequignet). I believe that is the Soprod A10 which is kind of a copy of the ETA 2892 - https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/sopr...fo-551701.html / https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/soprod-a10-375340.html - do a search for more info about the movement if you wish. Seems like a decent movement.

    Founded by self-made man Emile Pequignet in 1973, the company Pequignet met with success with their mid-range fashion watches. In 2004, as Mister Pequignet went into retirement, he sold the company to a former Zenith manager, Mr. Didier Leibundgut. Under the new ownership, Pequignet was set on becoming a high-end French watchmaker. The dial features weekday and two-disc date windows. The seconds register is located at 4 o’clock, while the power reserve can be seen at 8 o’clock. A window located at 6 o’clock show the moon phase. The new in-house French-made calibre from Pequignet was designed by Ludovic Perez and Van Tran, two men who previously worked for CompliTime, the owner of the Greubel Forsey manufactureCompany that has an exclusive on a watch movement or module, and is in a position to decide where the parts are produced, how they are refinished, and where the final product is assembled and controlled. The calibre Royal was designed with all complications integrated. Wide by 13¼ lines and thick by 5.88 mm, the movement relies upon a free-sprung mono-metallic balance wheel paced at 21,600 A/h (3 Hz) for releasing the mainspring’s 88 hours of power reserve. The rotor mass with tungsten winds the mainspring in both directions.

    Thanks for the info. Ill have a look into the movement now.

    I have managed to find one for 65% off (from £1760 to £616). Im tempted to buy just because it is such a huge reduction.
