    A question to ponder.

    Has it ever occured to you that almost everyone's wearing watches with all the same old eta 2824/2892/7750, just that all under different brands?

    of course...

    sure, i know it. don't overlook the fact that availability, reliability, and cost of the ETA movements is what continues to make many Swiss watches affordable.

    if you want something more unique, buy a brand that makes their own movements - Seiko/Orient, Citizen, Rolex, JLC, etc.

    That's a fact. Someone who is wearing an automatic watch has some probability of wearing an ETA. Even Swatch has them in the automatics now.

    Who is this Everyone and why have I not met them? You are forgetting about the 6497, 6498, as well as tons of mechanical movements from Seiko, Miyota, selitta and others.

    Automatics aside, haven't swatches ALWAYS used ETA movements?

    Actually there is a 1/3 chance that the person is wearing a Sea-Gull movement.
