hey hun, I got the swiss ETA movement.. let me copy paste the specs

mine was 218 + shipping 250 (mind you, my shipping was 35 to south america, should be less for u)

Salmon dial, roman markers.
In Smooth rounded bezel and Osyter Bracelet ..

Sapphire crystal and Swiss eta 2671-2.


ilvbags: no, quartz is OK with me.. all of my watches (Gucci, fendi, emporio armani, D&G) have quartz movement. Chanel uses quartz for it's 33mm watches, and automatic for it's 38mm watches. 38 would be HUGE hun 33 is big enough and you saw it on CB and YES, chanel made 33mm in quartz and 38mm in automatic movement LOL

Swiss ETA movements are in almost all watches (auth) from low end to high end (cK, Gucci, Chanel, Breitling, Omega, IWC...) though Omega and IWC do modify the movements. read more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ETA_SA I only know of Patek Philippe, which make the entire movement themselves <3

I didn't know asian movement was SO much cheaper. Considering I don't know much about watches either, and these things are fashion accessories anyway, I'd go for the lower priced and use the watch and enjoy it

Post the bracelet.

That Hublot is to DIE for.

Regarding movement, so far as I can tell from mostly lurking on the rep site, the Swiss movements are more expensive because they have to be imported.

I would think for our purposes, an Asian movement would be fine.

A lot of the rep watch collectors seem to be very in to the mechanics of the watch -- I hate to stereotype by sex but I think it's mostly a guy thing -- I don't give a hoot about what my car engine is like as long as it takes me where I want to go when I put the key in the ignition.

With a watch, I want it to run and look -- well fill in the adjective. I don't have any particular interest in a $600 replica watch.

I have Jacky's Chanel J 12 automatic which was bought when I knew nothing about watches -- I wear my watch so infrequently that it is always stopped since it mostly just hangs out in my desk drawer.

And I got SO excited that I thought you were modeling it on YOUR wrist -- Now I see it's just a felt jewelry show-er thing -- forgot what they are called.
