    A bad indicator for the future of HAQ

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f901/ba...e-4648117.html

    Nice looking piece.

    POS movement.

    From a company that does have COSC quartz models. Oh wait. No...they don't. The PR 100 quartz COSC is NOT in the current lineup.

    This is a piece where a PreciDrive should be a no-brainer, but they didn't. I read it that you're not gonna see any HAQ dress models...probably *at all*...from Swatch. Sport pieces only.

    As Mr. Moderator has often said, most of the world doesn't care about HAQ accuracy. I prefer to think but cannot prove that most of them reside on this forum.

    I hope the Longines VHP becomes a big seller. Just to give Swatch the idea that watch buyers care.

    That's a sad piece.

    A few quid extra for a decent movement would have been nice.

    Could there be a thickness issue with the Precidrives? This model is under 6mm thick, that could be the reason.

    Love the design though but not the price. But compared to some other 18k watches this one is pretty decently priced, I usually see 3x that price for 18k gold watches.

    Precidrive is Certina only, no? Not Tissot to my knowledge.

    Precidrive is an ETA term.
    These movements are used in a number of brands, including those outside Swatch group.

    It's just that Certina advertises it on the dial.

    So Tissot could use a Precidrive movement.

    They do ... possibly. Here's a random pick that has the ETA G10.212. This could be either the PreciDrive or the PowerDrive-only version, and there's nothing on the website or in the manual to indicate which one.

    Tissot used to have a PR 100 Cosc quartz with a precidrive movement. Seems like they don’t use it any more though.
