    New to auto movement question (Valjoux 7750)

    Hello,

    I have my eye on an O&W chrono with the Valjoux 7750 movement (with my budget this is like a high end Breitling to me ).

    This will be my first mechanical movement and first automatic. Is this wound by motion only (wrist or winder), or do I also have the option to hand wind with the crown on this movement?

    How often do you take for oiling / service given everything is working fine?

    Thanks for any info!:thanks

    Excellent choice! The Valjoux 7750 one of my favourite movements due to it's characteristic wobble - you can feel its heavy rotor spinning inside. You can hand wind this movement, and normal automatic watch servicing applies, between 5-7 years.

    here's my PAM90 powered by the 7750
