NE88 vs 7750

Seiko really is an 800 pound gorilla. ETA better take note.

"The NE88 has some features that really stand out and a few causing even seasoned collectors and watch nerds to take notice.

First off is a classic Seiko feature: a triple-tipped hammer that simultaneously and instantly resets all the subdial counters back to zero. It’s a very clean and effective solution already found on the Seiko 8R28, a higher end column-wheel triple vertical clutch movement utilized in the Ananta and Velatura models.

However, more important and eye-opening is the chronograph activation mechanism: a column wheel. Considered by the industry and collectors alike as a more highly coveted mechanism, thanks to its vertical clutch the column wheel offers a much smoother tactile feel than the harder click of the horizontal cam lever chronograph as used in the 7750.

This by itself makes the NE88 a “nicer” movement to use than the one it seeks to supplant."
