this is working perfectly after nearly 100 years, is a testament to Swiss watch movements of the day.
Great gold coloured case with an off yellow dial and VERY clear to read with those large dark hands, small seconds index and actually a pretty decent size date window @3. (some of their Gents models don’t).
Brought out as a marketing idea by Elgin, these were designed by mostly Lucien LeLong and were giver specific names of Haute Couture designers of the day in Paris
That little bit different, feminine – I mean diamonds for goodness sake and for once, not Quartz, so, no how do I change the battery issue? if I’m not around to help.
Note – Two things my Wife never does – wash the car and change a watch battery – sensible girl!
The unique button markers are an integral part of the case and are situated surround the small original acrylic crystal covered dial.
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.
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.
