Miyota OS chronos are a dime a dozen because they are cheap and dependable. They can be had in watches costing as little as $50. If you want a beater with chrono function, get something with an OS inside.Also, would a watch with this movement be considered much higher quality than a Japanese OS 10 quartz movement?
Trias, and any other brand from that group (Elysee etc), use the Liaoning 21,600bph in their auto chronos. Also Aeromatic I think used that same movement in one of their watches.Chascomm,
Please tell us names and links to sites that sell watches with those movements in the States!
Only watch that I know of that fits the bill is sold out and it was a great bargin, (Prometheus CR-1).
One other but thats no longer available either, similar to CR-1 without day only date and not of same build quality (a discontinued Ticino chrono).

And automatic chronograph is a completely different proposition. It's big, heavy, relatively delicate, you have to check that the time is set and it's still ticking whenever you strap it on and it won't keep time as well as a quartz. That's true of any 7750, whether it's made by ETA, Shanghai or Liaoning. And yet people still want them because it's mechanical. It's a watch to enjoy, not just something to strap on and forget.
As regards the Chinese-built 28,800bph 7750-clone, there are 2 possibilities; Shanghai or Liaoning. Shanghai is definitely the one to go for. Liaoning's 21,600bph version seems to be OK too, but I wouldn't be so confident of their 28,800. If you can show us a picture of the movement of the watch you're interested in, then I might be able to tell you who made it.
That's the Liaoning chronograph. Compare the shockproofing device with the one in the other picture.Could you please tell me what movement is this?
Thank you in advance!;-)
Yes, I have noticed the shockproofing device being the more expensive one, but according to above provided info, that does not help much, as this movement is worse than Shanghai, if I understand it correctly... :think:That's the Liaoning chronograph. Compare the shockproofing device with the one in the other picture.
Also notice the fine adjustment device on the regulator. That is not actually functional according to my watchmaker.
Starchyy,OK great, I guess I'll pick it up then!
