I have being searching more info lately but getting not much. Wonder how rare is this and who owns one here? If the crown is a screw in type?
Cheers!

Well they are not making 7760 movements any more from what I have read on line. I have a older Sinn 103 from the late 1980's or early 1990's that has the 7760 hand wind movement it does have the screw down crown it's off for a service right now. I guess you can say they are a little rare.

As much as hand winders with screw down crowns annoy me that's awesome.

Are you giving me a hint. Just sent it in for service the sweep hand started sticking more were it would not line up when reset. Probably will hold on to it for a while chronographs not cheap for a service.

Mike, i will post some photos this weekend hopefully. Got a bit of setback when the seller didn't mention the crown is NOT original during the replacement. I have shipped her to Sinn Germany to replace a new crown and tube. I shoot some quick photos before sending her go.

Well RGM is done with my Sinn so when I pay them should get it this week or next. To bad about the crown would not mind seeing photo's you took be for shipping it to Sinn in Germany for service and crown replacement.
