I am confused guys, sorry for being a noob. I am here reading to learn though.

"It is wise not to try and set the date with the hands anywhere near the date change position as that can cause damage - whatever the movement. Best advice is to wind the hands past midnight and on to around 6am, then use the quick-set function to change the date."

 

Does this mean i wind the watch to midnight where the date changes to the next day and then wind some more till its 6. Then am i able to change the date safely?

Only avoid changing between 8 and 4 with A7750 (normally chronograph watches) as a general rule.

 

Yes..........set the time to 6 and then change the date.

 

Most other movements are fine to change anytime....as far as I know.

btw: same rule applies to genuine valjoux 7750.

Thanks for this sticky - it really really helps...a lot.

 

In terms of longevity and reliability of the watch and movement, I would like to re-ask Rudly_1's questions. (maybe they were answered via PM..if so...pardon)

 

In reference to the above wants, which would be the wiser choice - The "ASIAN ETA 2836-2 Automatic Movement, 25J, 28800bph (which by all accounts sounds fine) or for an extra $50 the SWISS ETA 2836-2 Automatic Movement, 25J, 28800bph.."

 

 

Especially the "a" question - If the Swiss ETA 2836-2 choice is made, is it likely that that is what will be received? In dealing with a Trusted Dealer, of course.

 

Thanks all for your expertise.

 

One of the RWG trusted dealers offers an option on a watch with either the ASIAN ETA 2836-2 Automatic Movement, 25J, 28800bph (which by all accounts sounds fine) or for an extra $50 the SWISS ETA 2836-2 Automatic Movement, 25J, 28800bph....

 

Referring to your earlier Sticky (great stuff by the way) is this SWISS option:

 

a. is it likely to be a genuine SWISS ETA movement?

b. worth the extra $50?

 

Cheers in advance

Meah, I'd stick to the Asian clone mate, it's a good MVT and you save 50 bucks.

This thread would be awesome if it had pics of each movement to go alongside the descriptions.

The A7753 is an automatic movement. We occasionally see A7750s converted to manual wind, but I've not seen it done with the 7753

Any advice on handwinding an auto? Can it be overwound?
