Can someone indulge my n00bness and explain more about watch movements: when a watch from several manufacturers has an ETA or Viljoux movement with the same designation, "7750" for example, does that mean it's innards are exactly the same, or are there minor tweaks made by/for different brands?
And if one is going to drop a few grand on a watch would it be foolhardy to buy from OS, not withstanding the taxes/GST issue?

Hmm wonder if this is safe to buy from. Best price I can do locally is $3195 which they claim is about 20% off. 4K does seem to be RRP so not sure why dstore figures are so out of whack in buyers favour.
You live in one of the biggest watch buying towns on the planet, Wanted to buy post here or perhaps a dealer still has some?
Must say I'm delighted with the GMT2. Because it's so much lighter than the Panerai, I wear it more and so it rarely runs out. I've only had to wind it once. And since fitting the NATO strap, it's even lighter and more readily adjustable.
The open sdk etc part of it is quite nice and be interesting to see what apps are made /what its capable of as there's probably a zillion other uses that havent been thought of yet.
Oh yeah and i think the display should be square.. but whatevs.
