IWC caliber 7922 found in the IWC 3706 Flieger Chronograph watch. The base movement is an ETA/Valjoux 7750. It is adjusted to five positions.

Here is an excerpt of an excellent write-up by G. J. Buhyoff  aka Time Flies about IWC’s process of transforming a 7750 to a 7922.

The new c. 7922 utilizes IWC designed and re-engineered barrel and train assemblies as well as a new balance wheel and mainspring, in addition to more extensive finishing of bridges, plates and screws.. So, the basic Valjoux 7750 kit is essentially remade and becomes a 7922… IWC buys a 7750 kit and extensively reworks it, where that reworking is that of a substantive nature.
