The chrono pushers are for the 12 Hour Register , 30 Minute Register and Central Second Register. I believe the pusher at the 10 o'clock is for the Small Seconds Register but I have sent the seller an email asking him about it.

Oh yeah, real nice. I saw that one pop up for sale and figured it wouldn't last. That mesh looks like one I just purchased from strap code.com.

Agreed on both counts.

Most 7753's have a recessed button for the quickset date but Milleret opted for a crown it seems.

Yeah it has something to do with the way the geartrain was modified for the 3,6 & 9 layout, they couldn't put the quickset on the crown. I remember reading about it when researching the Valjoux 775x variants. Thanks for the confirmation FOGHORN as I wasn't sure if I remembered correctly.

Love the watch. Mine is an auto but the quartz versions appear to be a great value. If you are considering the one i recently saw for sale, it would be a good buy.

I found it
Bought for a great price as I am a returning buyer :)
$200 shipped. Nice band and deployment with the 45mm size

Looks nice with the big date under the twelve
Thanks for the ncouragement to buy it. At this low price I was just not sure

You got it @ a great price. Mine cost me quite a bit more being an auto. Enjoy it.
