Thinking of this model as it's reasonably priced even in Canada. I know nothing of the Sellita movement.
Thoughts?

Very cool looking - I really like the texture on the dial.

The T601 is based on the Selita SW 200-1 unless the watch is NOS from mid 2020 or earlier in which case it is based on the ETA 2824-2. Tudor doesn't specify what modifications they make to the Selita, but they do regulate it in 5 positions according to the Caliber Corner write up I found in the good ol' 3f library. I think you can be confident that they source premium Selita movements and that it will be expertly regulated as Tudor advertises the T-601 to deliver chronometer timekeeping.

I like everything about that watch. I never hand-wind excessively...otherwise have had no issues with the Sellita.

Regardless, the ratchet wheel teeth issue that was supposed to be remedied in the original SW200 is still experienced in the SW200-1. This isn’t to say one should avoid the SW200-1, but it is advisable to avoid aggressively or excessively hand-winding your SW200-1 watches as much as possible. Aggressive or excessive force is subjective, but what is generally not as subjective is the function of the automatic winding unit, which delivers a more consistent and regulated dose of energy to the ratchet wheel. Hence, the suggestion to minimize manual (and unregulated) winding of the SW200-1.

I checked out the milus as well. some very nice watches and well priced.
Unfortunately many of the subtleties of quality are not adequately conveyed by their website pics. When you hold both the Tudor feels cheaper.
