A late 1980s, early 1990s ETA Swiss Technology watch, Moonphase, Triple date, Chronograph, 24hr with constant sub-second, ETA 7751 movement.

It is uncommon for one of these watches to reach the public. These watches were known to be ETA students final exam pieces from the watchmaking school in Grenchen. As such you can rest assured the watch is functioning well, keeping time to within +6 seconds a day.

The case is well proportioned at 41mm and is chrome plated. There is some pitting to the chrome finish and some brassing consistent with age. The case back is stainless steel.


As well as the movement, the main talking point of this watch is the dial. It is a complex and intriguing dial as it’s packed full of features to express the movements mechanical ability.

The dial is a white base tone with three sub-dials. Mounted from the centre are 4 hands, one hour, one minute, one chronograph stop watch and on date pointer. The top sub-dial is a 30 minute counter on the chronograph, whilst it also has the day and month window inside of it. The sub-second at 9 o’clock has a constant sub-second and a 24 hour hand to indicate am or pm. The sub-dial at 6 o’clock is a 12 hour counter and moonphase window. This is all well laid out and creates a classy dial.

The ETA 7751 was introduced in 1986 and is a fantastic movement, being referred to as a “Grande Complication”, showing how impressive it was at the time. It is a 25 jewel, automatic movement.
