I want to choose Batman but that blue GMT hand is just stupid design choice against a blue dial.

Alpha Tauri was sponsored by Casio Edifice for a while. Seiko could sponsor them as they did with Honda Racing back in the day.

Audi Racing teams are already sponsored by Oris for quite a long time, so the F1 team may carry on Oris which is still an affordable brand compared to the others.

Citizen is more of an established movement manufacturer right now in the west, especially with the things they are doing with LJP movements. More micro brands are moving away from Sellita for LJP 100 movement which at a $1000 price point is a better value proposition compared to an SW-200. And being based on a 9 series Miyota movement, it is quite reliable and easily serviceable. When it comes to Solar quartz, the Japanese manufacturers are way ahead in technology wise.

LVMH is using Hublot's business model for their rest of their brands too 😅

I was just joking about Super titanium.

But Tag could have sourced a variant of the chronomaster eco-drive movement or even a better version of the standard eco-drive, there are a few variants with accuracy ranging +/-5 seconds a month. But they decided to get the basic eco-drive movement and put it in a $3000 watch.

True and GS quartz movements are special compared to the movement Tag is using in this model. It's the same E168 eco-drive model you find in $200 Citizen watches.

Delugs is based in Singapore. And unfortunately, they won't be selling any more straps for the Santos because they got a notice last year from Cartier about the patented quick change system and asking Delugs to stop producing straps for the Santos model. You can still find a couple of options available for sale in Delug, but they won't be selling after the 1st of May.
