What do you think the odds are that this will ever drop again?
Hi I come from Taiwan. I joined the drop in Nov. I selected 5- piece option. Paid in Nov. but got nothing until today. Is there anyone like me ? Massdrop said DHL wouldn't send the package to me because of too high value. I don't know if the reason is correct. Because they sent me twice and both failed.
Is there any grantee or warranties mine stopped working after 5 months .... ?

Received mine today November 24th (Canada). I have no issues with it also, the second chrono hand just has a slight shutter, barely noticeable, rotating bezel just a hair off. Aside from that very happy with this purchase at 300$US this was a great deal. Thanks Massdrop.

Oh, I've got lots, LOL, and a handmade Martu in midnight blue with red stitching on order. But for now, I've got 'er mounted on this Android strap in ballistic nylon over leather.

Thanks everyone for responding! Great to know that 22 mm straps will fit, cos I have new 22 mm straps from Chris Ward, Hirsch Mariner and NATO from Blushark all purchased over the weekend ... :)
I received my VSA on Thursday the 16th, and all is well. I am having no issue as described with the seconds chro hand. I am very pleased with the watch and am now trying to bond with it. At $300 bucks, the bonding should go smoothly. If not, I know several folks who would love to take it off my hands for that price.

You're fortunate, and I probably won't use the Chrono function enough to worry about it. It keeps good time.
My chronograph seconds hand has settled it. I wasn't sure if it would, but the jumpiness that I was seeing has gone away. The remaining stutter that it has is consistent with my Tag Heuer chronograph, only perhaps slightly more noticeable due to the white tip of the hand. I've been wearing it all this week and the time is running about +4 sec/day with the chronograph running the entire time.
I think the 'stutter' is a common problem with the 7750. If I remember correctly, my now sold ambassador chronograph did the same thing. I've read that this 'problem' also happens on much more expansive watches. Was hoping that it would be different this time. Guess we will have to live with it. Still a good price.

It is not a technical issue, that is how the 7750 works so no need to worry.
Anyone else get theirs? Is there a stutter to your Chrono seconds hand? Mine has it. I don't like it and am hoping it improves after running for a while.

The white tip of the Chrono seconds hand also accentuates the stutter, so it may not have looked as bad if the tip was not white.
After 48 hours just sitting on my desk, with another wind last night to keep it running, it's +5 sec as compared to the Watchville app, my normal reference. That's an averages of +2.5 sec/day. I'll likely keep it and start wearing it after I resize the bracelet and see how good it keeps time while worn.
"Massdrop is shipping you a package!", more like, Massdrop is awesome! :D

This was much faster this time, weeks ahead of the advertised ship date. I guess that's what happens when the drop sells out in three hours. As excited as I am to get this, due to some life events, I may need to flip it. Bummed about that, but when it gets here I may decide to sell others instead.
Woo hoo! Shipment notification!

Me too!
I WANT ONE!
Some history and more eye candy behind the Gen 1 and 2 Alpnach series.

That's a very nice watch!
I would not mind getting one like that myself if I ever see it on massdrop.
Missed it! What was the price on this one?

Wholly crap! For an automatic chrono? I am angry I missed this one.
SkipPp
Yeah, me too! Apparently it sold out in a matter of hours.
Anyone knows what's its lug-to-lug width?
Mike987
Doesn't seem to be listed anywhere I can find online. However the current gen alpnach which is on sale is 44mm in diameter, with similar in shape though a little more stylized and is 51mm lug to lug, if that helps.
To everyone that made this sell out so quickly....... THANK YOU! I'm meant to be saving for a grail watch and deals like this keep eating into my funds. Another couple of hours and I'd probably have cracked and joined the drop.
Dinglebells
I had the opposite reaction, had to jump in because they were selling so quickly.
Dinglebells
Haha my Tudor BB funds just took a hit because of this too!
Skipped on this one in the last drop. Had it on my mind since then. I wanted to save for a 'grail' of mine but I couldn't resist... Gonna have to sell a few watches. Like everyone here, hope there won't be any defects. It's a risk. But this price...
Any chance of the black dial in the next drop? :-)
Gone in 2 hours.

Great offering for a great price! I’m passing only because I’m not crazy about it’s look and crown, but I would have zero worries about buying this watch and this movement otherwise.
I just joined the drop...a very easy decision. The price for this piece is superb and, while I am not crazy about the bracelet, for the money saved I will be happy to purchase a strap of my choosing. At this pricepoint, this is a wonderful every day (any where) timepiece. Looking forward to delivery.
larryg
Same here :) Starting to looks for some nice strap now :)
I would buy it just for the movement, but dang this watch is UGLY.

To each their own. It is not my style, but others obviously like it enough to buy it.

Maybe we all have the watch equivalent of "beer goggles" on after those Szanto 6000 and TW Steel drops... but as a tool watch it looks good to me!
No warranty but I decided to roll the dice anyway. Within an hour of me buying the number of people who joined me in this gamble increased from 12 to 45. Lots of people seem to be jumping on this drop and for good reason. This is an amazing price for an ETA/Valjoux movement, and the watch itself is stunning. Hoping there won't be any defects. With 100 units available this one might actually sell out the first day!

Nice. I would love to be wrong on this and get it early.
Looks like you got your wish!
Would a wist size of 6 1/4 pull this off? What is the lug-to-lug length on this?
SAB1971
I think it's a matter of personal preference as to how you like watches to fit. I have an 8" wrist so I can't provide any insight. This is a perfect Chrono size for my wrist.
SAB1971
Bro you can pull anything off. Go for it if you want it.
If anyone wants to see close ups of this watch, there is a great video posted by Keep the Time that shows this same watch (different strap) with macro video. https://youtu.be/qeBEgh2pNOMhttps://youtu.be/qeBEgh2pNOM
[Edit] The watch in the video had a black dial but the one in the drop had a blue dial. Very similar but not the same.

I know why now. It was featured 55 min ago in the most poisonous thread in WatchUseek Affordable forum. Any watch featured as a deal in that thread alone will always sell out. Click at your own risk.

I follow that thread so I'm well aware of the frenzy that can occur. I haven't checked in there in a few days but it's not surprising that it's posted there. I hope that any MD regulars that would want this watch get a chance to join the drop before they're all gone.
Looks like some quick buying going on for the ETA 7750 movement at an amazing price. Will leave this video here that features some well known brands using the 7750 movement. Enjoy :)

I've been looking for a low cost auto Chrono, and I feel like this is a no-brainier at this price.
On a side: Does anyone know if any of the parts in the movement or anywhere are gold plated of any kind?
