    To me it looks like the date wheel is a little off, the numbers are not centered.

    I got 2 watches from Trust and it came very quick. about 10 days all up from the moment it was shipped from China. This is to Boston, MA.

Then a few more hours.......
    Yea I know what you mean.. dude I had to stop using trusty... or he had to stop allowing me to use him... however one wants to look at it...

    man, mine was routed through dang New York airport so the e-commerce and Usps is going to be SLOW as crap... it’ll hopefully be here by end of June.. 4px got it to America in 4-5 days, but sadly the dhl-e-commerce here and specifically Memphis Usps distribution center are pure garbage!
    but whatever it takes to get it here safe I guess!

    This is clearly a PITA and shouldn’t be the case. Watch keeps great time however once it starts up.

    Regarding the crown, there is no slippage or stiffness. It turns fine and sounds just like any of my other 7750s. Nice and smooth. It just doesn’t get the watch going sadly. I don’t know why.

    Yes, I could swap the movement for another 7750 but the decorated movement is part of the price. It really completes the watch for me.

    Other than that issue, Watch wears great and I love it. So much that I’ve ordered the blue dial also. Bracelet looks great also I’m sure those that like the style have no complaints. AR is incredible. Best I’ve seen on a native rep (unless you get an AR crystal from Prof). Copper is very close to gen. You will see what I mean when you receive it. Pictures don’t do it justice.

    Overall, I have no complaints with the watch minus this movement issue. I’m going to take it to my watch smith and ask him to take a look at it. Hopefully it’s an easy fix. Movement isn’t dead by any means, it just needs some part replaced that connects the crown to the heart of the movement. Let’s see...

    Man have you taken the back off to see if both of those wheels/gears are turning?
    so when you pop the caseback off and turn the rotor in the direction that winds it, you should see which wheel/gear I’m talking about.. if that same wheel/gear spins when you turn the crown, then it’s winding up the power reserve... I bet if you wind it quicker and with a smidge more force than very soft and delicate, it’ll be wind the watch (as long as that wheel/gear turns when you turn the crown... ...the same wheel/gear that turns when you turn the rotor...)

    Sunken date wheel is a dealbreaker for me

    Man that sucks!!!! When you wind does it slip (I had a 7750 do that) or does it feel a little lighter than normal but never give the watch full power reserve? I've had that on 3 handers. A third of the 7750 I have are gritty and feel like winding by hand will break them but they still work ok. I DEFINITELY would not want that on such an expensive piece and I feel bad it is hurting the experience. Why couldn't it have been an Omega that somebody has problems with, lol. If you had a movement you could swap it right? It just won't have the decorations? Being in the UK seems there might be some people on here that could service it possibly.

    Aside from that, how do you like the watch and how does it wear? How do you like the finishing and AR? How do you like the bracelet (looks wise since you're a strap guy)? Do you think the copper looks genlike colorwise? Besides your movement issue which could happen to anyone and in the rep game it does and with any type of watch, do you think GF nailed this release? I'm really happy these came out I can't wait to get mine on the wrist.

    Manual winding doesn’t work, no matter how many turns I give the watch. Very strange as I’m always very gentle.

    Also, with the rotor, it doesn’t move very freely in the charging direction and hence takes a while to get the watch going.

    These are problems for a guy that never had problems with 10+ 7750 movements.

    This isn’t something you’d expect for such an expensive piece. I’d consider swapping the movement but the decorated movement makes that impossible too.

    Glad Andrew was finally able to get the watch for his customers. I was too impatient.. after two weeks I went to JTime and got qc in 4 days with videos!
    super mpressed.. but that’s only half the battle... we’ll see how shipping goes!
    Blue dial looks great!! May get the silver dial as well!

    Well I ordered a blue dial and copper dial on 5/24. I got qc pics of the copper this morning but not the blue dial. Posting just for the thread. Looks good to me and I'm approving. That blue picture above looks great! Looks like such a pleasing blue. I was worried about it being a bit purple looking. If I didn't have the premier in green I would have went with the green. Already got my green fix. Still drooling over those pics in the sun.
