  1. Well what a coincidence, never seen a Spaceview in the flesh and then this turns up on my bench...
  2. But it’s not a standard 7750 and to access the gears on that 12 o’clock subdial the top plate will need to be removed, under which will be all the extra extra gears that shift running seconds from 9 o’clock down to 6 o’clock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The centre second hand is more than likely slipping, so need resetting and pressing on the pinion securely. This is a straight forward job for anyone competent working on watches. The second issue of the 60 minute counter running continuously indicates a problem that would need further investigation. This watch has a modification to move the running seconds from 9 o'clock to 6 o'clock. That means a few extra gears and I am unaware what the layout of it is. I can imagine how disappointing this is but my advice would be to get the centre seconds hand set properly and forget about the 60 minute counter. It may be more trouble than what it's worth.
  4. You should really try to simplify your problem. Your methods of explanation are very confusing! You have 2 hands that record chronograph functions, centre seconds & 60 minute counter (12 o'clock subdial) When you stop the chronograph and reset it, the centre seconds hand is gradually moving further from the 12 o'clock position...Yes? If so, the hand 'probably' needs reseting. This requires lifting the hand, moving it back to the 12 o'clock position and pressing it back onto its pivot. Is the 60 minute counting hand (12 o'clock subdial) reseting to the same (- ~1 minute) position every time or is that gradually moving too?
  5. Fantastic watch! And....Just about to be re-issued, I am 'hoping' to get one. https://www.fratellowatches.com/bulova-accutron-spaceview-re-introduced-during-baselworld-2010/
  6. Movement accuracy is largely dependant on 2 factors. Position & environmental conditions. This is after you have taken mechanical inaccuracies out of the equation. The goal is to have the least amount of variance in time keeping, no matter what orientation the watch is in or whether it's freezing cold or piping hot. I will write up a more detailed explanation when I have time. If your watch (whilst being worn) is at + 5 seconds per day, then it is fairly accurate.

  9. With these Vietnam cases that accept the gen crown, the level of 1675 builds have stepped up a fair few notches. This is an excellent build...well done! Did you have any work done to the case, bevels cut etc? I just might have to swap out my cartel case build for one of these cases!
  10. I'd buy a good rep of it...lovely watch.
  11. Gen or rep? I do like these and for the convenience of quartz, been considering one myself. I recently tried on the newer style version with the painted dial markers and grey dial, loved it and was hoping a rep of it would be out soon? Nice watch!
  12. I can certainly reset your hands for you and take a look at why the quickset isn't working. Unless there's some sort of catastrophic damage preventing the date change then we can sort that too. No charge and if the quickset repair requires parts, it will be at cost price. the majority of 7750 parts are relatively inexpensive. But let's cross that bridge when we come to it. PM me.
  13. EDIT: senior moment, didn't read the reply properly!
