SMW Chronograph Automatic Valjoux 7750

By TLex I'm not sure if I've introduced SMW here before, but I've had them listed under 'MILITARY' watches along with MARATHON (who have an almost identical model in their Chronograph Pilot Watch) for a couple of years now, so you might have already checked them out.


SMW's latest model features a Swiss Made Valjoux Caliber 7750 automatic chronograph movement. It uses H3 illumination technology with 16 trigalights; green is used for the hour markers and hands, and orange for the 12 hour markers on the dial and bezel.


The SMW's 7750 has a day / date display with rapid date and day correction. The chronograph has 1/5 second (100th minute) timing and is housed in an anti-magnetic casing. It has up to 44 hour power reserve. Its 47mm x 14mm Stainless steel case allows up to 30atm / 300M / 990ft water-resistance by using a screwdown crown, chrono pushers and caseback.


It features a uni-directional divers bezel and comes on a steel milanese (mesh) bracelet. Retail is 2'700euro (2'850 for the PVD model). For comparison the MARATHON Chronograph Pilot Watch (see bottom) is 2'700USD (on rubber).
