 In [[1995]], IWC created a novel variant of the 7750 base. **Cal. 76240** dispenses with the calendar and most of the [[chronograph]] functions of the 7750, leaving only the 30 minute recorder at 12 00 and adding [[small seconds]] at 6 00 instead of the usual placement at 9 00. This modification was anything but simple, however. Relocating the running seconds required cutting away part of the movement base plate and adding an all-new bridge with three [[wheel]]s and a tension spring. Removing the calendar plate required the creation of a new plate to cover the [[gear train]]. Next, Habring's [[rattrapante]] design was added. A final modification was the removal of the automatic winding mechanism in favor of a simple [[hand-winding]] works. In [[1995]], IWC created a novel variant of the 7750 base. **Cal. 76240** dispenses with the calendar and most of the [[chronograph]] functions of the 7750, leaving only the 30 minute recorder at 12 00 and adding [[small seconds]] at 6 00 instead of the usual placement at 9 00.
