I like it & great pricepoint---------but not sure about that 7750 derived FC-391 (?????)
Made by La Joux-Perret, I have the same movement in the Sinn 903. Really a first class movement.

Nice looking watch, too.

:Thumbsup:
Makes the price-point even better.

The 7750 is a rock-solid movement - but it’s just the base ébauche which they assemble into something slightly more special. (Kind of like Alois Ruf did (does) to the 911…)

It looks a reasonably nicely finished column wheel chronograph movement.

I still am, but that kinda just includes the bog-standard ETA version.
