The accurate movement has been invented already."May I ask, on what you base this statement? Accuracy of a movement, always depends on how well the I individual movement is regulated. I own IWC's with both Caliber's and can assure you that the Cal. 89365 fitted timepiece is as accurate if not more, than any of my Cal.7750's. (IWC modified) pieces.

Michael Friedberg Wrote:I am not commenting, one way or the other, on any rumors, future plans, etc.However, with respect I must disagree with some of the statements made by Regulateur relative to factual matters. I'm candidly not sure where some of this information is obtained, but it is inconsistent what I've been told.Specifically:1. A rattrapante could be done with the Cal. 893xxx....whether it's too thick from a design perspective might be another question. Whether it makes sense from a sales perspective or cost-benefit perspective might be still another question.2. Based on information I have, I am not at all sure of the conclusion, stated as fact, that "The 7750 still exists because IWC saved the production at ETA from being stopped, by agreeing a minimum number of movements to be ordered per year."3. Based on information I have I am unsure about the conclusion, stated as fact, that "IWC has a good relationship to Swatch Group and therefore can order this movement according to its quality standards. Nobody fears that Swatch would stop delivering this movement." I believe that IWC tries to have very good relationships with its suppliers but also I know there was some "tugging" to get some of IWC's specifications done by ETA here.In all events, none of these three points support (or deny) Regulateur's premise regarding 7750 movements in Portuguese Chronos
Michael Friedberg Wrote:I of course know and communicated somewhat regularly with Messrs. Ihnen, Klaus and Kern. I stand by what I wrote. I sometimes find that asking a person a question in one context gets an answer which, depending on wording, might differor be variously interpreted. I also sometimes find that paraphrases or translations sometimes distort. But we have to agree to disagree here.
