    Sunken date wheel is a dealbreaker for me

        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...)

I guess Trusty does put video on his website and they should all look the same. We'll both be rockin our blue soon I hope. That reminds me to check the tracking again now. And in a few hours. 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!

            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.

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

                          how about the sunken date? :-)

                            Now, here it is. It took almost 4 weeks from China to The Netherlands through Luxembourg (triangle shipment). The package was held at the customs office for two weeks because they had a backlog.

                            Finally here now and it’s beautiful! Seizing the bracelet is quite easy (check: https://youtu.be/19TGweNogrs?t=727) but you need tools!

                            It was worth the wait every minute!

                                [email protected] is totally correct. This watch is great. I bought only because of the bracelet and updated style but was thinking it would be large as yuotube reviews said it wore big and wrist pics made it look big. i have a 6.5 inch wrist and I was so surprised how well it wears. It wears extremely well and the bracelet flows into the case with no harsh lug protrusions. It doesn't wear super thick like I thought it would either. As neon7 said the faux movement is really a great touch and great to see in a Breitling. Extremely happy, one of my top purchases. Even the underside of the bracelet (ignore the protective plastic residue I didn't notice) looks amazingly well finished. Under the case is so flat and perfectly brushed. The underside of the watch is almost as interesting as the top, lol. I planned to add to the collection and not wear much but it's really wearable so I'll be wearing the heck out of it. Enjoy a ton of pics I snapped.
