A great feature of the Automatic is that a) it doesn’t have a battery, b) it doesn’t require a light source and c) setting Time Zones or Summer Times is a simple case of crown out, move hands, crown in – job done. No instruction booklets

manual wind Movado signed movement and a very neat layout dial with a three letter Day window @12, a red tipped Date Pointer with calendar perimeter index, with direct pin side calendar adjusters in addition to the main crown.
The watch dimensions are 22 mm wide and with the hinged lug design it means the lug to lug is nearly 46 mm, so when on the wrist this watch looks perfect for today.
The movement is a Longines good 17-jewel Cal. 10L, which is a decent workhorse of it’s day, has been around since 1949/50 and in pretty good condition. No bad marks on it and it keeps remarkably good time with a decent Power Reserve which shows it’s class even today. BUT is this a re-dial?
So it’s nice to spot a watch for the Ladies – and the men as it happens, the only difference basically is the color set up from Calvin Klein, that appears to me to perhaps overcome the clarity issue.
