Cheap movement in expensive watches

Why do some brands charge so much more for a watch even if it contains the same movement as a cheaper watch?

I think they are pretty good watches. I bought the new Highlife and i'm just waiting on it to be delivered. I've had their slimline heartbeat before and it was solid

I would personally go with AS. Their watches are more unique, speak to the brand more and my personal tastes too. That is a personal choice though, so I would say to get what you want. What draws you to both brands? They are pretty different I would say.

Yeah it seems to work just fine, sometimes the readings seem a little off but I trust it and assume my gut is just wrong

I use Toolwatch, the app. I have an iPhone so I'm not sure if you’ll be able to use it if you have an android but it times the watch for you and calculates the accuracy

Are TAG not really well-made watches? I have an Aquaracer with an ETA 2824-2 movement and it's lasted north of 6 years for me with 0 problems. I know Hamilton use ETA movements but so did Panerai in the 2000s and even up until recently, they aren’t that bad.

But your sense of fashion says a lot about you! I do get you though, not everyone cares like us watch nerds

Don’t you think the simple fact they want their watch to not break and just tell the time says something? I would argue it means they are very utilitarian, at least in my eyes

Do you think that much can be said about someone based on what watch they wear or nothing really?
