For some odd reason I got a itch for one of these but since leaving the TV watch shopping game, i wrestle with whether its a wise choice. Any feedback from owners of the watch would be appreciated for sure......

I see used 7750s as low as $695 which seems like a steal..

While these were sold on TV at some points they are a very nice watch. especially for about 1K. These are not Swiss Legend or Invicta quality. These are on par with watches costing a LOT more. Fit and finish is superb. I dont think Lior ever had intentions of selling these for this price point but they got sucked into that TV image and are not a real well known brand.

I have the polished bezel version. It also comes with a nice winder but that me be another issue in itself. It depends on the winder you may recieve. There are a few reviews floating around. A couple at BDWF for sure.

Eric, if you want something siimilar, but a lot less $$, I've got a BNIB SWI LE A9240 (still wrapped, in fact), white dial with blued hands/number outline, with the blue-and-white winder, that I'll sell ya for $450 shipped and insured...just sayin'.....

Same as this one, but with the aforementioned white dial....

I'd be tempted if that thing were 45mm, I love that day/date complication...

It is 45MM son???? Breitling its not but not a bad watch!

This limited edition, individually-numbered Swiss Watch International timepiece features a precise Swiss Made Valjoux 7750 Self-Winding 25-Jewel Automatic Movement which beats at 28,800 a/h (accelerations per hour) and utilizes an Incabloc shock protection system! This unique movement is encased in a round, 45mm (1.77") brushed and polished solid silvertone stainless steel case and screwdown exhibition (see-through) caseback which showcases the breathtaking, highly-hand-decorated Automatic Movement, fully decorated with an SWI logo, a Cotes de Geneve rotor and blued steel screws. Highly scratch resistant, anti-reflective Sapphire crystals protect both the decorations within the exhibition caseback as well as the silvertone dial, which itself boasts a gorgeous Guilloche design. The dial also contains luminous metallic-blue hands, luminous silvertone Roman numerals, a contrasting tachymeter scale outer-dial and quick-set day and date display windows located at the 3:00 hour position. Contrasting silvertone and blue chronograph subdials are located at the 12:00-6:00-9:00 hour positions measuring 30-minutes, 12-hours and 60-seconds (small-seconds). In addition, this handsome SWI watch boasts a brushed solid silvertone stainless steel unidirectional rotating bezel with an etched 60-minute scale,a set of solid silvertone stainless steel chronograph function pushers and a solid stainless steel screwdown crown embossed with the SWI logo. The multi-link bracelet is fashioned from polished solid silvertone stainless steel and fastens with a solid stainless steel dual push-button fold-over safety deployment clasp which is embossed with the SWI logo and insignia. This incredible watch also rates water resistant to a depth of 200 meters (660 feet - 20 ATM)!

this is a beauty of a timepiece, back in the day i realy wanted to pick one up. back when it was 42mm and was rumored that the bracelet was made by breitling? i would have prefered the larger case, but it seemed with each new l.e. model the price would go lower and lower. so in my mind, when the price drops so does the quality. this is just my opinion, ive not seen or held one in the last 3-4 years. i know this was lior's baby, so he may of left it as high quality as is was in the begining.

You are talking about the 7750 model right? Not the day/date?

Oh wow Eric, if you could get this one for $695 that really would
be a steal imho. Even Time Bandit's price for a brand new one at
Chronoshark sounds incredible !!! Smile ..I don't have one of these
watches, but it definitely looks pretty impressive. Just looking at
Hobbit's pictures there, and man oh man that's NICE ! ..Even the
one 25or6to4 is showing is cool ! ..After looking around for a while,
there honestly doesn't seem to be a price better than that $695
you mention, or the $995 for it new at Chronoshark that Time
Bandit showed. In fact it looks like this SWI is about double or
more at most places. Shocked ..Good luck in whatever you decide
here Eric !

By the way, here is an example of the pricing on this watch at
many other places..

yes sir the one time bandit posted and shnoop had it for 995.00.Know its a 7750 or 7751 so most people can work on them but what if it needs a subdial or hourmarker in a couple years and the compnay is long gone? Call me a snob but i want a watch company to be around for 100 years and maybe 100 more after i'm gone! The one think i can tell you is whoever makes Jacques Lemans makes the SWI watches, the dial colors are spot on in not one, two, three but four colors and thats just too much to be a coincident! Black, blue, silver and brown are just the same shade in both brands!

I agree! i owned a silver dial 7750 and a brown dial 7751 sold both.i still own the 3 hand version.these watches are simply amazing! if you look hard enough you can find one for under a grand.they are easily worth that or even more imo.some of the nicest watches i've owned tv brand or not.one of the few watches that were on par with my ball and omega watches for fit and finish(imo).i am not sure about the 7750-51's but i know the 3 hands use top grade eta movements.the big question is who makes them for lior? my bet is armond nicolet(sp) does anybody have any insight on the manufacture?
