Accutron 26c04 7750

Post by svaglic » Tue Aug 05, 2014 5:27 pm

I am stoked. I have been wanting this for a couple of years and last week one, in excellent condition, was for sale at a great price. I admit, I really, really, really like the blue hands. The light silver dial (almost white) has some nice texture going on and so do the sub dials. Sapphire crystal on both front and back.

It's water resistant to 50 meters, but I doubt I will wear it while swimming.
It's 15mm high, I was concerned it would be too thick, but it sits nicely on the wrist. In fact, the bracelet is so comfortable it feels like it melts onto my wrist. It's not an Accutron bracelet, but it is made very well and I have no problems using it while I shop around for a good deal on a Gemini bracelet. I hope the Gemini bracelet is as comfortable as this after market one is. It did come with the original unused leather band with deployment clasp, I just like the feel of the bracelet more.

The movement is a 7750, the chronograph works like it should and so far, the time has been spot on. I haven't noticed any rotor noise, it's smooth.

I plan on having this one for a while, I would have preferred a 40mm, but this works out fine. With the light silver textured dial, blue hands and 7750, I can't complain.

Well damned done, Svagy, well damned done! I too have wanted an Accutron with VJ 7750 in it, and I'm an avid fan of those beautiful blue hands as well; there's just something so classic and classy about them. The exhibition-back view is just breathtaking, what with all that gold plating and nice, fine details throughout. The extra strap is okay, but I think your decision to stay with the after-market bracelet is the best course. Like Doc McNeedles, I am not at all a fan of leather straps that are made to look like some other animal; the effect is usually half-arsed and cheap looking, to say the least.

Great job, Svagy; it's like you scored four TD's in the first quarter and got two-point conversions after each. Enjoy the hell out of it, mon ami!. :face:

Saw you post that one in a WURW earlier and thought I hadn't seen it before!

It's watches like this that keep me wanting to like chronographs! Fantastic dial texture and the blue hands are classy as hell.

I think it looks great on the bracelet. If I may ask, is it a Watchadoo lumpy? If so, I can attest to the fact that they are the most comfortable bracelets I own.

Many congrats, Svaglic! Don't let that one go!

I'm not sure if it is a watchadoo or not. I lean to yes, because it is AWESOME, but don't know, it came with the watch.

Nice Gemini svag!

I've had two auto chronos, a lemania and a citizen. Nary a valjoux has touched my wrist.
