Finally managed to track this movement down,as above.Basically it is F.Piguet's Cal.8.10,that was taken by both VC & AP and modified.This was I believe a substituted movement for ultrathin watches,when 1003 movements became hard to source.That said,how is it rated as a movement in terms of reliability,refinement etc) in its own right of course and not against the highly regarded cal 1003 ?

the movement in the pictures is quite rightly a VC cal.1015, but it is not based on a F.Piguet ebauche. It is based on a JLC cal.895 ebauche, and I believe the AP version would be the AP cal.2090. This movement is used by a variety of high end brands, including my wifes Chopard Tank in steel.

Hi Tick-Talk - is this one of these so called 'free sprung' movements.Can you explain this term to me ? - in horological terms,its sound a desirable attribute ? Dr Strangelove
