    The 7750 movement has a very slow changeover period, sometimes take 1-2 hours to completely change.

    Re: The Carrera Club

    A few quick pictures of my old Triple Date. I bought this watch about 8 years ago or so, directly from the first owner who bought it from a jeweller in the early 70's after having spent a long time in the shop window. Remember when everyone wanted a quartz watch? He wore it for a long time, and it ended up in his sock-drawer when it stopped running. Years later he offered it for sale to me. I took the gamble and bought it in non-running condition. After a complete service it ran beautifully and still does. As far as I know it's completely original, and has never been tampered with. Not even polished. It therefore show some signs of wear and tear, but I like it just like that.

    Hello:
    I knew that it was not a matter of whether joining the club or not, it was a matter of finding a 1887 V2 around. This weekend I unexpectedly found one and couldn't resist getting it.
    I will post some pictures later..what a nice piece is the V2, I'm sold!

    And here it is, the CAR2110-0 CAL 1887, bought new from an AD. Sorry for the pictures quality, they don't do justice to the V2

    Re: The Carrera Club

    Well,

    I'm joining the club with my yesterday's acquisition...

    I still have an "old" Formula 1 Chronograph white dial but doesn't even compare to this !

    I can't stop staring at it !
