Not a 7750
You may see many bloggers or watch sellers incorrectly listing the base as an ETA 7750. The difference, which makes for the signature styling of the Montblanc Timewalker featuring this movement, is the placement of the subdials. The 7753 has the subdials at 3, 6, and 9. Another differentiator is that there is date pusher on the side of the case at 10:00. This is why the Montblanc Timewalker includes a special pusher tool. If the movement were based on a 7750, it would be possible to set the date via the crown.
