There is a similar caliber J880.2 found in the Max Bill Chronoscope series. The J880.1 and J880.2 are both based on the 7750, but the J880.1 is a tricompax layout with a small seconds subdial at 9:00. The J880.2 has a vertical bi-compax layout with no small seconds at 9:00. Some J880.2 have a date only without the day of the week.
