What' the implication of this? Your Tag, Rolex, Omega, Tissot etc watches are on the inside all the same!! What makes them a Tag or Omega is just the make-up on the outside. However, the movement is what makes a watch special.
While you may not bother what's running your watch when you buy a 200$ watch as one may consider this as a fasion accessory, I'd imagine to be different for a USD12'000 watch. You may want to make sure that for that kind of money you get something special and not the same movement that can be found in a watch for 1/3 the price... otherwise what are you paying those $$ for? Like when you buy an Ferrari you want a Ferrari engine inside and not a Fiat....
Don't fancy the date window of the Merc SLR McLaren showing 3 dates. Have the Grand Carrera series already launched here? Got the Heuer (without 'Tag' on the dial) Carrera re-edition. Looked at Fortis? Just bought a B42 Pilot Pro. Considered the B42 Official Cosmonaut but find it a tad big for my wrist. Feast your eyes on the coming Tempus - The Temple of Time exhibition.

http://www.flashlightreviews.com/rev..._infinity2.htm of a few yrs is oso limited edition, not in production liao. its abt psychology mah, owning a rare item- like 0.5carat diamond vs 5.0carat diamond of same grade.
i do admit watches r more complex & intriguing than diamonds to me.
