Re: Blue Dreamer Movement = TAG Heuer Caliber 18 (DD / Selli

$7777 not bad. I thought it would go for more. What do you guys think?

: In response to a couple of questions about the movements in the
: Carrera Blue Dreamer and the Hodinkee Limited Edition Skipper --
: both are powered by the TAG Heuer Calibre 18. The Calibre 18 is
: made by Dubois-Depraz, who fit their 2223 module onto a Sellita
: SW300 base movement. The Sellita SW 300 is relatively small, at
: 11-1/2 lignes, and is thought of as an alternative to the ETA
: 2892 movement.

: The small size of the movement accounts for the "eyes" of
: the Blue Dreamer and Skipper chronographs appearing to be close
: to the center of the dial.

: TAG Heuer has used the Calibre 18 on several of the Carrera
: re-issues.
