I guess ultimately, consumers will still prefer an ETA under the hood ;)

Miyota and Soprod are good movements. My friend swears by Soprod.

Eterna, the original creator of ETA movement, but no longer connected to ETA, has come out with Caliber 39.
This new movement is meant for mass production, which hopefully will challenge ETA for a place in the mass market.

1st batch watchs using this movment velly expansive... dunno when or what day we will see pricing cost will drop to more buyable lvl like Sellitas that now many brands are enjoy on the lower pricing cost than ETA...

Want to make big names like Tag Hauer, IWC, ORIS... many many to turn back to ETA oledi very hard lo...
