The ETA/Valjoux caliber 7751 is a 25 jewels Swiss made self-winding automatic movement. This extremely multi-functional caliber is based on the legendary ETA/Valjoux caliber 7750 chronograph, but with additional complications including a full moon phase indicator at 6:00, a central date hand pointing to the date in the outer perimeter of the dial, day of the week and month windows at 12:00, and a 24 hour hand at 9:00.

 

ETA 7751

 

Setting the time

When setting the date on your caliber 7751 watch, do not attempt to do so while the hands on the watch are displaying between 8:00PM and 2:00AM. Before adjusting anything, be sure to move the hands to a time outside of this zone – this is to make sure the date flipping sequence at midnight has occurred. For the moonphase, do not make adjustments between 8:00PM and 6:00AM. Doing so can cause serious damage to the calendar gears in the movement.

  • Winding – Neutral (position) 1 is hand-winding position. If your watch is equipped with a screw down crown, unscrew it and you will be in position 1.
  • Time – Pull the crown out 2 clicks (position 3). Turn the crown clockwise or counterclockwise to set the time.
  • Day of the week – Use the pusher on the side of the watch near the 10:00 position
  • Date – Pull the crown out one click (position 2) and turn it counterclockwise
  • Month – While in date setting mode (position 2 and turning counterclockwise) continue to change the date until it passes the 31st of the month. This will advance the month indicator to the next month. Keep doing this until your current month is selected, stopping on the day.
  • Moonphase – Pull the crown out one click and turn clockwise until your desired moonphase setting is reached.

Chronograph Sequence

The chrono sequence on the VD51B is the same as most chronograph watches:

  • Start – top button
  • Stop – top button
  • Reset – bottom button

Note: If your chronograph isn’t running, it’s most likely due to your watch not having enough power reserve. Simply wind the watch fully before engaging the chronograph function. Also be aware that running the chronograph makes use of additional gears in the movement and will cause your overall power reserve to run out faster. This should not be an issue as long as you are wearing the watch.

Watches with this caliber

The pictured example of the ETA caliber 7751 was found in a Dubey & Schaldenbrand Gran Chrono Astro.

This movement has been custom decorated by the manufacturer. The movement has a hand-engraved decorated gold finish. The rotor is skeletonized and blued steel screws can be spotted throughout. Dubey & Schaldenbrand proudly states that their use of this caliber has a chronometer-quality escapement.

Here is an example of a Top Grade 7751 found in a Z&K watch:

I have one of these I’ve been wearing for a couple of weeks and the accuracy is very impressive. Someone really did a great job of adjusting it. It is able to keep within one second of NIST time for days on end. This is only with wrist movement. No winding.

I have the Tourneau 2010 in black Moonphase edition. Let me tell you, even nearly a decade later, I feel honored to have this watch. The style of the watch is breathtaking and the movement is gorgeous, a gorgeous and magnificent technological masterpiece of watch engineering. I take very good care of it, and it looks new. I have two other expensive watches, one being a Cartier, and it’s not worth the same in style and engineering as is the Tourneau with the ETA/Valjoux caliber 7751; though, as is the case in many stances because it’s “Cartier,” we the masses… Read more »

Hello: I have an older (1990-2000’s) Dubois et Fils – triple Cal-moonphase Gold case watch with the 7751. Only issue is the date pusher at 10:00 Broke for the 2nd time arggh . I Will get repaired again, as i love the racing themed lumed numbers on the white dial.

I own 3 different watches that contain the 7751, 1: Omega, 2: Invicta 3: SWI. I love all 3 of them, especially the SWI, I like the case, and band. The 7751 has proven itself to be very durable, and accurate, plus it’s very impressive with its multiple complications.

When setting the time on your caliber 7751 watch, do not attempt…”. Makes no sense. It’s the date adjustment that needs to be avoided.

I have a Universal Geneve Tri Compax And a newly purchased stunning Dubeys & Schaldenbrand Artisans with a 7751 movement even more exquisite than the one shown here. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the movement – especially the latter.

That is a beautiful watch! It looks like the same as the gold 7751 movement in the pics above except the rotor has Tourneau instead of DS. What is the information you want to know about your watch? Where did you get it from?

I read your comments about 7751 and I was so amazed by many positive feedback that I decided to build my own watch with this movement. Reason to build one was because my budget didn’t exactly reached the minimum limit to buy one of this watches from any brand. Besides, the cheapest ones I find was over my budget anyway and I didn’t really liked the style of colors that have been available. So after lots of searching and deciding on style, I finally made a purchase of parts from Swiss seller on ebay. It was a long and bumpy… Read more »

I have a Waldan International 7751, in an 18K rose gold case. It’s COSC certified. I spoke to Oscar Waldan several years before I purchased it, on the second hand market. He told me he used only the highest grade movements and heavy cases for his watches. I’ve had it since 2014, and it is still just +1 second daily. Fabulous watch, from an amazing watchmakers. These watches were also private labeled for Tourneau. Tiffany & Co. got the Zenith El Primero 410, which Waldan also sold with his name on it. The 7751 (there are three grades), is the… Read more »
