    In this, http://www.military-watches.net/CWC_vs_MWC.html

    He describes that: I have tested the CWC and MWC G10’s and frankly the Ronda 705 and 715/715li movements in the MWC and the ETA 955 in the CWC (Ronda 715 in the GS2000) are both highly accurate as you would expect with a quartz movement so it is hard to go wrong. The main difference is that the MWC has a Ronda 715li with 10 year battery life where the standard ETA 955 or Ronda last 3 years.

    They both use the same battery size. What would stop the ETA 955 from using a Lithium one?

    This is so true. I have found that Omega is a much more reliable watch and less expensive. The Rolex Day Date that I once owned constantly was losing 2-5 minutes every 24 hours. Took it to a "Rolex Dealer" who said "Well they do market them well" so that was it for me. I agree with the poster above in that they are overrated. I dont hate them, they make a nice looking watch. However in my opinion they are overpriced and overhyped.

    Now why didn't I wait until 10:10 in order to take a balanced view?
    Yes. Alarm wristwatches have been around a long time and perhaps always popular with some wearers. I have a couple of Seiko Bellmatics.

    every 24 hours. Took it to a "Rolex Dealer" who said "Well they do market them well"
    Sorry for the pun, but how accurate is this statement. Is this just his watch
    or is it indicative of the Rolex Day Date line. I am very surprised that a dealer
    would disparage the watches they sell(and service). I have never owned a Rolex, and don't
    plan to buy one in the near future, but I was just curious. (2-5 minutes a day is a lot)
    I would have taken it to another dealer.

    WOW!....That is a gorgeous timepiece/wrist watch!

    Have you thought about maybe having it fully restored cosmetically?....but still...it looks nice just the way it is as well.
