Nice watch, but V7740 has nothing to do with Cal12

Really nice watch..

Even if is not my usual behaviour to act like a Watch Idiot Savant in posts of other forum users, my reply is just to point out the V7740 shares only the chrono module with the Buren cal12 while the main module has nothing to do with it (totally different, they don't share any part, neither the screws) being the V7740 a manual movement beating at 28800 vph.

Heuer used the V7740 in Calculator, Monaco and Autavia 741.603 KAF and GMT (the latter ones in the V7741 variant) but always in the standard 2 counters version, while Breitling and others used it in the most beautiful 3 counters version adding the small seconds complication.

The V7740 is IMHO a great movement (excluding the Zenith El Primero is one of the few '70 hi-beat movements with 3 counters and date, very nice configuration for a chronograph).

Congrats for the watch and GLWTS.
