I've come close to buying the 3 hand version on at least 3 occasions while at a local AD.
The crown guard is all that holds me back.
Great looking dial and great size (IMHO) but I don't get the elongated guard.
But still.............maybe...............I might......................
I am not wild about the big 12. I AM intrigued by a Valjoux 7753. Is that a 7750 that has been modified?

The 7753 is a modified (to allow for a more symmetric sub dial layout than the 7750)
The date is at the 6 o'clock position and set by a small inset button at 10.
I think it's also used on some of the Jazzmaster line and also the Khaki Aviation Chrono.
