I've been working on collecting "upward" (in terms of watchmaking rather than "prestige") for a couple years now—Victorionx to Glycine and Alpina to my current collection below—and I'm wondering if an ETA-based Tudor is the next step. My main question is: what does a Tudor with an ETA have over my ETA-based Baume and Tag (or even my GP-based Ebel)? Is it the case? The finishing? The connection with Rolex?
For context: I've also owned ETA based Omega (late-1990s Seamaster 120m) and Breitling (2000s colt). You can see that I've been hovering at the same level for awhile now, but am i really making a step up with Tudor or simply a step to the side? I make another side step to, say, Longines and save $$.
Any thoughts welcome! Thanks
Edit: Good points have been made here and elsewhere to the tune of "movements aren't everything." I agree and do not wish for this thread to be about movements alone.
