    ETA 2894-2 or Valijoux 7750?

    Looking at chronographs for under 2000 for my next watch (still pinching pennies though), and I was wondering which movement is considered the better of the two. My favorites with the two movements are the Movado Datron Chrono, and the Mido Multifort Chrono.
    Thanks!

    The 2894-2 is a chronograph module of the 2892-A2. Here's a basic chart of the differences between the 7750 and the base 2892-A2.

    The 7750 is an integrated chrono. It was designed from the start to be a chrono and has been in production and refined since its introduction in 1974.

    The 2894 is a 3 hand 2892 movement with a Dubois-Depraz chrono module attached which was created in 1996. The chrono module is not serviceable. ETA runs an exchange program, where dirty modules are exchanged for new modules.

    As a chronograph I would expect the 7750 to be better. Its' integrated design is likely over time more reliable and smoother in operation. As a pure time keeper, I'd expect the 2894 to be better as the 2892 is a very good 3 hand movement. In other words, if you plan on doing allot of timing the 7750 would be better, but if you plan on not using the chronograph section much, the 2894 is probably the better choice.

    I'm sure I'd be playing with it alot, I just think the chronograph function is really cool. Both are similar in design, so I don't think I would be unhappy design wise with either. I think the Mido is cheaper...I just can't find that face with a metal strap, but they're obviously replaceable.

    keep in mind that the 2894 chrono seconds hand at rest splits the date window in half, which isn't so bad with two numeral days, but 1-9 not so pleasant. I've seen a number of 2894s in that configuration, owned one, and it makes no sense to me.

    +1 for the Mido

    I think both 7750 and 2894 are good for occasional uses of the chronograph function, but once the watch is out of warranty the 7750 has bigger chance to have available spare parts when needed.
