I'm biased... I prefer a mechanical movement...

Hi, could some one help me decide which watch should i pick the micrograph or 2000 aquagraph because i need sport watch for evrey day used.


I'm biased... I prefer a mechanical movement. I do find myself strongly attracted to the new TAG-Heuer 2000 Aquagraph. It's specs are better on paper than any of the current crop of Seamaster Chronographs: 500m W/R, Automatic HEV, Large Chrono Minute Hand, Better luminous on the bezel, locking divers bezel, visual screwdown crown indication and a 24-Hour Military time indication, has a new automatic movement. The downside of the movement is that it's an ETA/Dubois-Depraz piggyback movement, which is not my favorite combination. The movement is also a new one, so it hasn't been around the block very much... So I would strongly consider waiting for as long as you can until making a purchase decision.

The Micrograph is a very interesting model and has it's own appeal. But it is a very different watch.

Try all the canidates on your wrist, picture in your mind all the places the next month, year, decade, generation you and that watch will be: Birth's, funeral's, weddings, graduations, parties, memorials, holidays, work, play, tractor pulls and jello wrestling. Which one best fits your wrist and your lifestyle and wish to be seen wearing is the one you end up with.
