One for the seniors next week

Recommended Posts

I bought this today for 5 euros at a vide grenier (French car boot sale). Apparently it doesnt work but if I can figure out how to set the day then everything else works.  Tempic automatic, came on a cruddy strap which has been confined to the bin and replaced with this one for now. Bit of a budget brand apparently so no particular bargain but I like its simplicity. There is a small button to press on the side to change the day of the month but this doesnt effect the actual day perhaps every day will be Wednesday!.

Thanks for posting that, dear @niveketak. Tempic is a brand of mixed quality over the years and might be worth a topic at some time. There is some information available online if one searches using Google but the history of Tempic needs to be carefully pieced together, and added to, if a useful history of the brand is to emerge. Here is a 1980s Tempic chronograph with a slightly oval 40mm wide (not incl. crown) rolled gold case for your perusal, powered by a Poljot caliber 3133 hand-wind movement:

Possibly a Slava 2427 movement in it.

@niveketak have you tried pushing the day change centre with a pin or a fine ball point nib. ?

Yes I did this and nothing happened with the actual day (Wednesday) but the number changed.

The day should change by winding on the watch forward through 24 hours.
