Rare Movado Day-Date Calendar Automatic SOLD
From the heyday of the Movado Watch Company comes this superb quality, stylish day-date calendar wristwatch in a solid stainless steel FB (Francois Borgel) case with automatically wound movement, all in beautiful original condition. I especially love the unique "dotted" small seconds markings on this dial circling the day and date apertures. The day is adjusted by winding the hands past midnight, back to 9 o'clock then forward again to the next day, while the date has a very convenient quick-setting button located on the side of the case at 4 o'clock. A very slick looking vintage Movado of excellent quality in every regard, what I would call a perfect "everyday" wearer with a rugged stainless steel case and high quality automatic movement.
