What you do may not be so important, but it is very important that you do it well. (my variation of a saying by Gandhi)

The same Idea I have on giving the Mark XVI the 80110 movement. And let's try to stir things up: I guess the ETA movements used are more reliable and accurate than the in-house movements mentioned here.Kind regards,Paul
