cinq Wrote:Very nice article & pictures indeed. One thing I noticed though: there were questions about which movement is in the 40 mm Ingenieur. Michael first replied it was a Sellita and later corrected this, stating it's an ETA 2892. The article I now just read stated that it's a Sellita.Kind regards,Clemens

In addition, the Ingenieur catalog lists the calibre as a 30110 which is an ETA number. Herr Ihnen told me that Sellita is only used in the Portofino line. Sorry to disagree.

Michael Friedberg Wrote:Well, I wasn't that sorry ;) But I'm now sure of this movement,But also, a minor correction. The new dual time uses a special base movement by Sellita as specified for IWC, with a base plate drilled to accept a new IWC dual time module, based on the UTC design. So there is one non-Portofino partial Sellita.
