Do be aware that this uses the ETA Caliber C01.211, it uses plastic parts and is considered disposable. Not the same as the Valjoux 7750 by a longshot.

Any idea of the life expectancy? I looked that up and read that it is found in the lower end models of Swatch brands. At $500, that's a pricey throw away model.

Hard to say I just wanted to point out the distinction. The watch wouldn't become a throw away, you would just have to replace the movement. I have seen people say $350 for manufacture replacement and $250 for 3rd party but that info may be outdated. For comparison that is about what it would cost to service a watch with a 7750 in it so long term costs may be about the same. I would imagine the resale value would be significantly less but you are looking at double the price for anything with a 7750 in it new.

This is a nice looking watch but it might be better to get a non chrono watch at this price point or lower with an all metal movement like the ETA 2824 or something like that. I know the Hamilton Khaki King had a slickdeal a few days ago, might still be active for $300 that is a hell of a watch although a lot more understated then this one.

That said, if you like this watch and understand what you are getting it is a reasonable value. Nothing wrong with it and it is a ton better than something like a MVMT, Daniel Wellington, or Michael Kors.

Everyone always complaining about the plastic movement in the C01.211. So what? Lot's of quality things are built with plastic these days. If used in the right way, there shouldn't be a huge difference....we aren't talking about a $50,000 Patek.

Agreed, $500 is too expensive for this movement IMO.

Since the cost is the same, is it possible to swap the movement out for the 7750 once it reaches the point of replacement or are they not interchangeable?

If you like the looks of this I wouldn't worry too much about the movement. It's priced right and will likely not have any problems.

Avoid Jomashop...just bought an Certina DS Action Diver Automatic watch for 575...Came in wrong box...no papers........shady...stich with Ashford if you must go gray market....BTW.. The Steinhart Titanium Ocean One from Germany CRUSHES thus watch and come in the ion black....Tissot ...Mido and Certina all use similar ETA movements..and are in the lie mid tier. Nice watch...BAD VENDOR...if you buy a Tissot take it to a local authorized dealer to have it checked out...
