You don't really have statistic of how many hit markers and how don't.Slightly off-topic, but I was pretty excited about the Ti version of the Aquaracer Solargraph (except for the price) until I saw a video of it on youtube, and the seconds hand didn't hit a single marker going around the dial. Maybe nitpicky, but for $3,000 I reserve the right to pick all the nits I want. Especially when I have a $150 Casio that hits every single marker.
For what it's worth my Scurfa's seconds hand hits about 2/3 of the markers, and that's fine with me as it only cost me $300.
There is probably run of the mill movement inside.Pictures are a thousand words.

yo this looks neat. It kind of makes me think.... we have the general concept that quartz movements are uninteresting and they hold batteries, and mechanical movements look nice with moving parts that make them look alive.
Seiko 9F62 (and if those count: Casio module 3495)Are there any quartz movements you’ve become fond of?
and It's a nice looking watch, I'd sayI rather like this Casio 5652 movement (Casio Oceanus OCW-T4000). Solar, Multiband-6, Bluetooth.
Thanks. Here’s another photo of it, indoors. The anti-reflective coating on these is really spectacular.and It's a nice looking watch, I'd say
very nice indeed
Wow... never seen that... who makes it?Junghans J101.65. Jumping hands, independent setting hour hand, perpetual calendar, accurate to +/- .02 seconds per year with radio signal, +/-8 per year without. And it looks quite handsome.

I guess I dunno if it will pan out to opening more watch manufacturing within our borders.Does it though?
I read an article on these guys some time ago. Their whole schtick was pretty disingenuous
I'll see if I can find the article. If I remember right there's a lot of tricky wording and misleading statements. Using "Built in America" instead of made (important distinction apparently). Indian owned, Indian designed, Indian components, assembled in Arizona.I guess I dunno if it will pan out to opening more watch manufacturing within our borders.
But what is their schtick and why is it disingenuous? The video with Marc from Islander was pretty straight forward.
It's right there on their website. They're not hiding anything. And saying assembled or built in the USA is what they have to do since Made in the USA is enforced strictly.I'll see if I can find the article.

If remember right they posted up the Made in America compliance document, but don't actually adhere to it. They have a goal to meet an unqualified Made in America standard. A bunch of stuff.
It was quite a while ago things may have changed
That looks really good.
Didn't know that Tag Heuer also has solar powered watches in their catalogue.I'm also kind of interested in some of these "higher-end" brands dabbling in solar. I'm sure it will come out that Tag is reusing a Seiko movement. And I don't think there is anything that could possibly be considered "haute" about a solar movement no matter how well it's made or finished or by who. But, I still think it's cool to have some solar options in nicer and more "refined" watches.
They're found in the Junghans MEGA line.Wow... never seen that... who makes it?
