The ETA/Valjoux caliber 7753 is an automatic cam type chronograph movement. This movement is from the same family as the caliber 7750.

7750 vs 7753:

The 7750 and 7753 are very similar. In fact, the 7753 is based on the 7750. Visually (from the dial side), you should be able to tell the difference:

7750

  • Chronograph subdial counters located at 6:00, 9:00 (small seconds location), 12:00
  • Day/Date at 3:00

7753

  • Chronograph subdials are at 3:00, 6:00, 9:00 (small seconds location)
  • Date at 6:00

Mechanically, you can differentiate between the two movements based on the setting of the date. The 7750 date sets by the crown, the 7753 set from a 3rd pusher (see below). If you’re able to see the movement, but cannot see the caliber number stamp, remember that the 7750 has 25 jewels and the 7753 has 27.

Date Pusher:

The date is typically adjusted by a pusher at 10:00 (some watches, like this Tudor Fastrider, have it at 9:00).

Some watch brands that use this movement opt to not include the pusher in their designs. This could be for water-resistance issues, etc. For example, Breitling labels the ETA 7753 as their caliber 23, and when used in the SuperOcean Heritage, it does not have the calendar corrector.

Changing the Date:

If an ETA 7753 powered watch does not have a pusher integrated into the side of the case (as pictured above), you will have to manually set the date by continuously advancing the hands forward until the desired date is set.

Hi
I would like to find the ETA 7753 used for Tudor Fast Raiser Black Shield . Basically to understand if the wheel or oscilant of the movement is always the same or can change depending the manufacture year.

A 7753 is a 7753 is a 7753. What I’m trying to say is that the Tudor Black Shield states clearly that they are simply using a “Self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, Calibre 7753” not their own movement and ETA isn’t going to change the winding direction for Tudor, and thay aren’t changing is depending on manufacturer year either. The Tudor manual itself even says “A watch equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement is wound automatically… Read more »

Have got a Victorinox with this movement. It cost me £500 and is more reliable and accurate than other well known brands that I paid hundreds of pounds more for !! Big brand names don’t always guarantee quality x

My Tissot Bridgeport is running under a second fast per day! Close tracking has it under .5 on most days even, absolutely incredible!

I think it’s a great movement smooth and easy to wind. I never knew that Breitling would share the same movement as my Tissot

Just took delivery of a new Tissot with this movement for US$650. Rather a steal for me at that price given comparative pricing on other watches using the same movement.

I have the Hamilton Intra Matic Chrono with the Valjoux 7753 movement. I’d like to change out the white date wheel to a black one as I think it goes much better on my panda style watch. Where can I buy one?

I too came here for the very same reason. Is there a black date disc available as a spare part for the 7753 with date window at 6 o’clock? Answer would be graeatly appreciated. Thanks

I tried to use the quick date button while the time was at 6:30, (where is should be safe), and now can no longer set the date from the second crown position or the button. The date will only move forward when setting the time from the third crown position. Does anyone know of a procedure to correct this without opening the case?

I have this in a Tissot Bridgeport, and it’s more accurate than my Rolex or Cartier. Top class!
