Meh... all the Valjoux movements are too chunky for me.

As for the design question, I guess have an aesthetic preference for 3-9 or 3-6-9 on an otherwise clean dial. However, 6-9-12 works better when there's a date window.

I don't have a strong preference, just as long as the sub-seconds dial is NOT at 6. Frequent minute and hour hand blockage from view.
I mean... it's going to get blocked at some time during the day no matter where it is on the dial.

Also, what's making you say the 7753 is discontinued?

I'm still seeing info on the website...


That said, I think all of ETA's 4-digit calibres are no longer sold outside Swatch Group, if at all anymore.

You can see which ETA movements are "current" and which are "phased out" here (scroll down to "Mecaline"):


Interestingly, 2824-2 and 2892A2 show as "phased out" while the Valjouxes (7750, 7751, 7753, 7754) show as current.

Seeing as their main site doesn't show any of the Mecaline stuff anymore I expect the rest of them will be phased out before too long. Within the Swatch Group brands, the Valjoux movements are being replaced by C01 and updated A07 variants that are internal only and not offered to third parties, and thus won't show up on the site.
