    @ven, is that using a sellita movement or a eta?

    Hi Fish, sellita which is pretty much based on the 2824-2 bar 1 extra jewel.

    Thank you sir!
    Correct, it's a Swiss clone.Since swatch now owns the eta movements they are very picky who they sell to.

    Yes, they actually were partners and outsourced their movement builds to sellita. For not clear reasons, they decided to cut ties and make the movement back in house. So sellita then copied what they knew as there was no design copyright , then over years improved the movement. Which is suppose to be as good as the ETA(several reports). There are a few slight variations to the story/s though. I have read other bits of info, but my memory is poor at best lol.

    I have the other movement and to be honest, they are both as accurate. Compared to my mb6 times over days/weeks.

    @ven. That is correct. I have 2 glycine combats. One pre Invicta buy out and one post. The earlier model uses a eta while the newer one under Invicta ownership uses the sellita. They are both+/-about 5 sec/day.

    Your employees are lucky as well! Nice gesture. For my 10 year anniversary at my last job I got a pullover jacket. Nice but not a citizen!

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that! If I had gotten a citizen I probably would wear it more

    The problem is most of them end up selling them. Oh well. I look at it as"it's the thought that counts" a lot of people don't get anything from their employer

    It is the thought that counts, and itís a very nice gesture. My boss makes sure we wear them to the company Christmas party every year, nobody who has one has dared to sell theirs

    I've wanted one for years, unfortunately I always spent my money elsewhere. But I made changes in my life and the opportunity to purchase one presented it's self. I have other watches I wear but this one is special to me, I know what I had to change to get it. Honestly I'm not sure if I'll want to be buried with it or possibly pass it on to someone who will appreciate it, and the small story of what I changed in life that goes along with it.

    That change is worth significantly more than the Rolex.
