Wristwatch movement with complications. "Click" to Login or Register 
IHC Member 1394

Well, I stuck my neck out. I'm not a wristwatch collector, though I've bought a number pot of curiosity. I've stuck my neck out on this automatic movement, not knowing if it is caseable or not. The dial is marked E. Monnier automatic. It is supposed to be a Valjoux caliber. The seller indicated it has a code lmvzx on it somewhere, though I didnt see it. Looks like it has day, date, month, sidereal or 24hr, moonphase, chrono. Any input is appreciated as I'm clueless when it come to these teeny fancy critters.

I checked the movement and it indeed seems to be a 13L. All my failing eyes found was 7751, the calibre I assume. I found other versions of the movement which look like they take a case with 3 pushers, not the everyday run of the mill case! Maybe we could try out your case on a run up north---thanks>

It looks like they only have them for the 7750. I'll call them to see if a three button case is available.

These probably aren't the type pushers you're looking for, right? Wink

Man! Glad I don't live in Japan! If I did I'd hope and pray that everyone took a shower and put on their deodorant. Cool

I have seen the two cases Peter has noted, and one defunct website which has cases for the eta 7751.
They are about $300 each. As have $250 in the movement, is this worth while to assemble a watch, or should I cut my losses and sell the movement? Any input appreciated.
