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.
