    Is it fair to say that quite a bit of padding goes into the case to support the movement ?

    Indeed, the 28xx series was introduced when watches were much smaller. At least the movement holder ring of the U-series is made of metal ... frequentlyx, in other brands, it is made of plastic (which they will sometimes sell you as "additional shock-absorption).

    In the antimagnetic watches, the movement holder ring serves as part of the inner soft-iron case and is functional; in watches like the U-series, its sole purpose is indeed to fix the movement inside the case.

    Rolex is nearly the only brand that does not use this Plastic or metal holder, because they have their own movement for their own cases. But for the U2 the holder is necessary to host the dry tech.

    Not sure that metal movement holders are so exclusive ... even Bill Yao uses one in his creations.

    Mk II QUAD10


    Dimensions
    • Case Width: 40.0 mm not including crown
    • Case Thickness: 12.95 mm
    • Case length: 51.50 mm end to end
    • Lug width: 20.0 mm

    Weight: 78 grams
    Movement: ETA 2824, Automatic, hack setting with manual winding capability (Elabore grade)
    Water resistance: 10 ATMs (100 meters)
    Case Finish: Satin (stainless steel)
    Other: Double gasket screw-down crown, metal movement holder. Each watch individually numbered
    And the Sinn 356 doesn't need one as the case is so precisely machined that the movement is held directly by the case.
    Cheers,

    Hello Martin,

    what do you mean by saying "exclusive". I don´t like "holders" at all! I favour the Rolex way!
    Maybe you got me wrong?!
