I think that the automatic winding mechanism has been modified as well for easier assembly. That basically is correct. I have talked to IWC about this and am awaiting technical details. The movement is more the same than it looks --there are differences but they relate more to production and servicing than function.

The same movement will be used in the new Da Vinci and Aquatimer Chronograph (red gold). To be honest, I'm quite dissapointed since this is a USP for this watch.
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)
