1. CDG (Cote De Geneve) is the striped finish on the rotor.
2. Some might have been stamped with VAL before it was integrated in the Swatch Group (ETA)
3. Clones are made in Asia and some spare parts. Otherwise the history is in this link.

Thank you HSL, Informative as usual, so mine signed VAL 7750, was produced prior to integration with swatch, therefor, genuine. I red ( on the net) the genuine ones have five ball bearing rotor, mine got seven, what is your thought on that?  Thanks in advance.

The most of the 7750 rotors I'we seen has just 5 balls from the factory, guess it's the minimum amount of balls that will make it last for a certain time.(There has to be an aftermarket too.) Then there are some third-party bearings with 7 balls in them, one could say they have upgraded it a bit. 
I am in no sence involved in Selling these so I put this link here in an informative sence ;)

The old Valjoux 7750 rotor has 7 balls from what I've seen. These have a pressed/riveted bearing, unlike the modern version with the bayonet fitting.

Thank you @nickelsilver , makes perfect sense, I bought just the movement, used, about twenty years ago, it must have worked in a watch like ten to fifteen years, seemed to me, aftermarket bearings are unlikely to have had a market then, good enough to justify costs of a new design/ production, thence, seven ball bearings could have come in old versions, now we know it did.

    • Dial looks original. It should be the Yin to the Yang of the one I posted above. As a bonus, the seller claims it actually works, which is a relative rarity for prospective 404 club members. I think I may swap out the steel strap though.
    • If you look carefully at the actual statement its loose pallet stones etc. It's more of a generalization statement. The graphical display comes from the sounds of the escapement. One side of the escapement produces one line the other side the other line. Then there's a problem with timing machines and liquid crystal displays we can see the pixels. So the upper line is migrating relatively straight across the display moving up one pixel at a time but remaining straight. The lower line looks like it's wandering around both going up and down. It really should look more like the upper line. So anything that affects the escapement affects the sounds shows up on the display. As it looks like only one side then it would be typically one side of the escapement. So loose pallet stone possibly even the roller jewel which would affect both could be damaged and I've even seen a loose roller jewel only show up on one side. Escapement lubrication one stone gets lubricated the other does not look like this along with anything that screws up the escapement dirty escapement etc. So cleaning examining and re-lubricating would be a good idea. Then a watch made in the early 70s isn't exactly a vintage watch it really should look a little better.
    • Could the brass coloured washer be a dial washer? The second part... no idea, how thick is it? Can we see some pictures?
    • Look into Omega pushers. They have the same construction as the Breitling . Not sure which model now so you have to do some research.  
    • I received my Ronda 703 movement today, it had a couple of extra parts with it that I have no clue what they are for. The first is a brass coloured washer  - roughly 2mm outside diameter, 1mm inside diameter and curved. The second is brass coloured plate about 5mm x 1.5mm with an open ended hole at each end. Does anyone have an idea what these are for?
