Hi All..

next to my Fab seamaster auto, is my Raymond Weil W1 which I have had for about 6 years...

Does it rate on this site ?

thanks

"No" would be my guess. Not a thermo compensated quartz movement as far as I know.

Howdy ac/dc. Here is a link to our attempt to define an HEQ ...

What the heck is an HEQ anyway?

Our roots are high accuracy, but we've expanded our interests since the forum has started. Your RW is certainly a nice watch. However, I personally wouldn't rate it as an HEQ. The bottom line is this ... What will create a lot of interest/discussion on the forum.

I have both the chrono and the straight quartz, while neither are HEQ they are without doubt a very nice looking watch and spectacular value for money second hand.

Re: How I see it, if it's quartz driven,>>

The ceramic encasing is quite nice. I suspect these watches will last a very long time and hold value better than most ... but my Rado didn't even use an ETA Flatline movement... strange that a good watch like my Rado used a Fashonline quartz. But, you can swap movements easy enough if you want.

(BTW, there are a huge number of replica Rado ceramics out there... step carefully.)

Re: How I see it, if it's quartz driven,>>

Bought a Rado True with ceramic case / bracelet for my mothers birthday last year and a Raymond Weil for my GFs graduation.

Both are certainly a high end watches with a fabulous design (you can spot a Rado from 30ft distance), superior build quality and an excellent image.

So in my opinion both shown models are High End Quartz Watches, yet they do not house HEQ movements.

So it depends what the forum title is about. HEQ Watches or HEQ Movements ?
