Is that the dive model? >>

If so. It's a modified Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement with the chrono parts removed leaving the date and seconds at 9 only

Thats about all I know about it.

any reason they'd remove the chrono option?

i'd assume more function = more money.

do you think it's a space-saving issue or a waterproofing issue?

i (knowing nothing about watch movements) would assume they'd eave the added functionality?

Mike...NYC. My collection so far is a 312 and some cool straps.

Probable because f the 60 second counter at 9:00 >>

To match the set up of the Marina design and add a date

They wanted a dive model and not a chrono

Not space saving as all the chrono parts are under the auto rotor, so keep or not keep. Height doesn't change.
