...and although we will never know the true story, I'd love to know how Tag ended up using a Seiko movement as the base for this new caliber.

Was it because they found it to be the most technologically advanced solution?

Was it a pricing decision?

Was it a matter of availability....in other words, was Seiko more accomodating than eta in supplying movements as needed?

Had they tested the eta and Seiko products and determined that the Seiko was the toughest and most trouble free?

Were they hedging their bets hoping that if they used the Seiko instead of a 7750 no one would notice when they claimed in house production?


Maybe a combination of all the above?

We will never know, but it sure is odd that we will soon be seeing Seikos in Tag Heuer watches.
