I've heard/read this and that. But - elaboré or not - they do keep excellent time, are very well regulated and the finish is ok as well. I wouldn't bother that much about elaboré or top. If you want to go for chronometer quality MIDO is the right brand to go for.thanks , of course according to mido.ch info it has 2836-2 ETA and is it true that mido use Elaborate grade ETA's?
I'd take that as a good thing. I've seen a lot of double AR coated watches and on all of them I noticed that the AR coating vastly increases the glare by making it a very noticeable and unnatural looking blue.M005.430.11.031.00... however I think both watches lack AR....boo.
