    Robert, the AR bezel is not ceramic? :cautious:

    "I think it's more that I'm used to seeing the brighter red and blue on the Aquaracer Calibre 7 and also on the Rolex Pepsi, both of which are ceramic of course"

    TAG has two movements they call the Calibre 7, one is the gmt, the other is a less shitty calibre 5.

    You should put that in your blog banner instead of advertising mother's day discounts in the outlet :confused: unless you get sponsored for it of course :p

    To the best of my knowledge, that isn't correct.

    The Calibre 5 is an ETA 2824-2 or a Sellita SW200.
    The Calibre 7 is an ETA 2892 or a Sellita SW300.
    The Calibre 7 GMT is an ETA 2893-2 or a Sellita SW330.

    Sure, but the Calibre 7 GMT is commonly referred to as the 'Calibre 7'. GMT nomenclature is not particularly consistent across the range.

    Why the hate for the calibre 5? Haven't had any issues with mine so far.

    Was running about 30s/day slow when I bought it, got to about 2mins a day, then the winder stopped winding it and it started stopping every night. Not all of it is due to the watch, along the way my cleaner put my ipad case on top of it and probably caused magnetic damage, but I still think this is unacceptable for a tool watch like a calibre 5 aquaracer.

    The watch itself I absolutely love, wore it daily for several months and then on and off for another few months until it just became too much of a pita. My real issue with the Calibre 5 is value for money, it's the cheapest version of a cheap, off the shelf movement. It would cost tag very little extra to fit the cosc certified version, but really they should be fitting an anti-mag, anti-vibration movement to their tool watches.

    I can understand the frustration! Hopefully the new Isograph Calibre 5 movements take care of the magnetism issue and is overall an upgrade compared to the current standard Calibre 5.

    Was having the similar problem. Except i am largely at fault in my case. I was the one who put it near my handphone all the time. Was a watch noob back then. But nothing that demangnatizer can't solve.

    I share the same feeling, that AR is a tool watch and should withstand abuse better than that.

    Honestly for me it's hard to pass Aquaracer design for diving watch that i want.

    Just a heads up... TAG Heuer Bicester are doing an Easter Promo from the 8th to the 28th of April, 50% discount basically... more details to follow soon, but I can tell you there's a lot of Auto Aquaracers...

    It's too bad that the Seiko dealer was so nasty. That MarineMaster with the Spring Drive is well worth the price. The Spring Drive basically takes out a traditional escapement and replaces it with a wheel that rotates constantly in the same direction. If left to spin freely, the wheel would rotate quite a bit faster than it should, and the watch would be quite fast (about double time), with a continuous second hand movement (no visible jumping). However, there is a quartz-regulated electromagnetic brake that slows down the wheel to to the proper rate. The quartz regulator constantly adjusts the braking force to keep the time at quartz level precision, but the movement itself is entirely mechanical. Even the quartz electronics are powered by a small generator which runs off the mechanical bits.

    If you wanted to think about it like this, it's kind of like an automatic watch that is constantly being regulated by a little quartz guy inside of it. Instead of taking your watch to a watchmaker to be adjusted to keep right time, the watch is constantly auto-regulating. Most people reckon it as a Grand Complication. And the 72-hour power reserve is awesome too.

    In any case, the Spring Drive 600m diver is a stunning watch at a great price. That's less than a Planet Ocean (also a 600m diver). And FYI the reason it's so light is that it's titanium.
