Watchopenia, my chronograph 7733

These are my collection of vintage chronograph using valjoux 7733 movement. Valjoux 7733 is a manual winding 17 jewels movement. Most are swiss made, some from Russia too. The movement has a frequency of 18000 A/h and a power reserve of approximately 45 hours if fully wound. The Valjoux 7733 is a movement circa in the 60s. Production ceased in the 70s. A lot of chronograph movements found today are based on the Valjoux 7733.

Montres Yema is a watch manufacturer founded in 1948 in Besancon, France. They claim that their watches "stand out from the rest by virtue of their specific design and technological characteristics".Yema distinguished itself in the very beginning by creating the first automatic chronometers manufactured entirely in France, and became famous for the technical qualities and sports characteristics of its watches.

  1. Watches always adds personality. Luxury watches can be acquired at great prices if you know where to look. Look for a wide range of Chronograph at substantial discounts and you won't be disappointed.
