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

Some of the topics covered in this caliber listing:

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:

Eta Caliber 7753 Date Setting

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 by wrist movements alone. To ensure optimum winding, wear your watch daily. Before you first use the watch or if it has stopped, you will… 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

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!

Excellent movement and runs at +1second consistently in my Omega Speedmaster Racing. Although I’m not sure how much of the credit should go to the Omega 3330. Thoroughly enjoying the watch regardless of where the credits belong

The Yema Rallye Andretti Edition Limitee also has the Valjoux 7753 caliber (2700USD).

Regarding the date-setting function of the 7753: If the watch does not have a quick-date pusher, you still don’t need to spin the minute hand endlessly. You just need to advance the minute hand past the date change to about 1 am, then reverse the minute hand to about 8 pm to reset the date change mechanism, and advance the minute hand past the date change again. Repeat this process for as many dates as you need to advance. It’s not as convenient as a quick-date function, but it works a lot faster than rotating through endless 24 hour cycles.

Does this have a vertical or horizontal clutch?

Charles

Reply to  calibercorner

The standard 7753 has a horizontal clutch, but watches with tweaked 7753 movements sometimes have vertical clutches. Example of standard would be the Yema Rallye Mario Andretti LE mentioned above. But both my Omega Speedmaster and Longines Column Wheel Chronograph have modified 7753 movements with vertical clutches. You can tell by whether the chrono minute hand sweeps smoothly from minute to minute (vertical clutch) or jumps to the next minute when the chrono minute hand reaches the 12 o’clock position (horizontal clutch).

I just received a Franck Muller watch with this caliber. Here they left out the twelve hours counter. The date is at 6.

Does this mean that the 12 hour counter is phantomized?

No, it does not. Franck Muller modified the movement to their own requirements.
