A very attractive vintage calendar wristwatch, this model has a stunning two-tone dial which is in lovely condition with a wonderfully warm and even patina. The date ring is calibrated in blue against a high sheen silvered surface and contrasts brilliantly with the main body of the dial. To achieve the secondary tone, the date ring is fractionally recessed into the dial plate and is therefore cleanly separated from the rest of the dial’s surface.
Cased in stainless steel the upper body has flared, horn-shaped lugs and a chamfered bezel. The case retains very good definition with light scuffs. Manually wound, the movement is ETA’s 17 jewel calibre 1100. This is one of the few calendar movements of the period to have separate pushers for the adjustment of all indications – whilst the calendar will advance each day around midnight, four recessed buttons to the case sides independently allow for the manual adjustment of the day, month, date and moon-phases.
