I can't say I want one specifically, but I am hoping that some of the innovations in that watch's manufacture are implemented across more of the Swatch Group's offerings so that reliability and longer times between required/recommended servicing, along with ease of servicing, are the result.

All the best.

Yes, I am quite positive that this technology will be implemented across most of their popular offerings like Hamilton and Tissot.

Swatch watch and Tissot (possibly Hamilton) uses the basic movement C01.211 which kind of lured me away from buying Tissot as to Swatch as they have the same ETA on their automatics

Wow, thanks a lot tony, it helped me a whole lot!

After some research, I decided to purchase a Tag Heuer Formula 1. Problem is, there's so many different styles. I'm looking at the Formula 1 Indy 500 and the Chronograph. Which one do you guys recommend?

I doubt you'll ever have a complaint about them. Bulova make good watches and offer them at sane price points.

All the best.

Of the two, I like the first one better. I like it better because the look i cleaner and because the information in the sub-dials is immensely more legible.

All the best.

I got a tag heuer aquaracer chronograph (tag outlet mall outside LA)

Pretty happy with it and no major problems (had to do battery replacement 3 months after purchase)

That's not surprising for a watch bought at an outlet mall or GMS. Even having to replace the battery so soon after buying the watch, the savings is still very much worth it. Quite often outlets' and GMSes' assortment is NOS (new, old stock). That's as often as not the reason they have the watch at the outlet. The watch is still nice and there's no reason not to buy it.

Enjoy your new watch.

All the best.

Got a Tag Heuer Aquaracer 300m on our honeymoon. That was 9 years ago and it's only been in the shop once which is more than I can say about my BMW.
