Response to The old Tudor chrono movements were made in same price quality as they do now...
relatively better then the crap ETA that was put in the new MC. The ugly truth is that the current ETA does have plastic components.
Relatively speaking the 7734 with slower 18.000 bph was a better caliber then the current ETA. The kicker is that 7734 even uses a much efficient curb pin regulator balance cock set up in my opinion then the current ETA. The hairspring stud attachment point as on the 7750 is not the most efficient way to attach a hairspring to the balance cock.
So now one gets a bad quality caliber for a lot of money in the new MC. Honestly what do you think it cost Rolex to get an off the shelf ETA caliber in the year 2010, and then charge the retail custmer MC 4-5K. So we are paying for the case design and forgo the caliber. What a mark up.
Philipp I would agree if the price of the modern MC was under 3k, then the ETA might make sense. But at 4-5K retail a more updated higher quality design and caliber should have been implemented in the modern MC case.
As Moran basically stated, we are giving this watch to much credit, it is not a Rolex technical marvel.
As for me it is a copied vintage MC dial with a cheap caliber with plastic components.
