are they actual moon phases and perpetual calendars movements?
No idea about mine, but odds are that it isn't. I suspect it hasn't been serviced for at least 50 years, so I'm not going to mess with it.  It's going in for professional help. I'll find out more after that happens.

they must at least have some sort of decent movement given the amount of information available for it. would be keen to find out more and know more when you find out..

The name, Tri-Compax, refers to the three complications: the moon-phase, chronograph, and complete calendar

1000 quid for a triple complication sounds like an absolute bargain. it's sometimes hard to fathom how "cheap" watches like that come with ultra complicated complications inside..

It's a £5K watch, that's why I'm pissed off with myself.....

I have ,ahem, several watches.
The latest is a Steeldive SD1979 Squale.
Seiko auto movement, sapphire blue tint crystal, screw down crown and back and solid stainless bracelet.
It is a fantastic watch. Great bang for buck.

The Rolex madness continues!

Philips individually auctioned off a collection of five of the new Oyster Perpetual 36mm watches with the bright coloured dials. The yellow, coral, and pink models went for HKD 107,100, or about AUD 18,700 for a piece that retails at AUD 7,850.

And it isn't anything exotic. The OP is Rolex's basic model.

Oh yes @Graeme .
I ask at local jeweller Jasper Watches in Erfordia for the GMT Master.
They told me a waiting time of about 20 years. For the submariners 5 to 10 years, that one with green bezel also about 20 years.That is crazy. ???
In former times in the German Democratic Republic you could wait for a car also 15 years or so. But they had lack of economy

One of my favourite jokes from when I spent a lot of time in the former Soviet bloc in the 90's.

The year is 1976.
Car salesman - The good news is that you have been granted permission by the Party to buy a Trabant
Customer - Great news, when will I be able to pick it up?
Car salesman -  August 21st 1987
Customer - Morning or afternoon?
Car salesman - Why?
Customer - Well the phoneline is being installed in the morning.....

As a side note I'm getting enamored with the Hans Moser Streamliner, which I can't really afford. They share a little something with the Laurent Ferrier watch I posted a few weeks ago.
