I don't like having two of the same movement, and in general I want each watch to have a movement that is different in some way, be that through different complications or architecture. This (generally) also has the effect of making the designs varied as well.

A few here avoid the SW200s - is it because the clone factor? Or just too common? I will have one in a Stowa Flieger sport model.
For me, it's a confluence of the 'clone factor' and the fact that they are thoroughly dull. ETA/Sellita movements are the watch equivalent of a 3-cylinder diesel engine. I used to own one in a FC Moonphase, but I sold it partially because I could never shake the feeling that the movement was an industrial assembly line product rather than something special.
