Re: I'm not a big fan of the ETA/Dubois-Depraz mov

Terrific article. I also love the look of the anniversary Carrera but and am completely turned off by the stacked--modular--nonintegrated chrono movement. Had TAG "done the right thing" and used a Zenith El Primero movement I would certainly have been a buyer for this piece at an even higher price point.

At the risk of sounding petty or obsessed my problem with this type movement is the way that the minute counter hand "sweeps" instead of "ticking" in single increments.

Unfortunately this module is used in several really cool watches besides TAG and Omega.

Cartier Roadster Chronograph
Breitling Navitimer 50th Ann. Edition and
Girard-Perregaux Ferrari F-300 are three that I no longer own because of this.

Just one picky guys opinion,
