Movado Calendoplan from the early 1950s Calibre 128 movement

Currently test driving my latest bargain purchase. Picked this up very cheap recently as a caked in dirt and filth  non runner. It's been in the wars a bit, the crystal is a mess, the minute hand doesn't match the dauphine style hour hand and there's a few gouges on one of the lower lugs, luckily not too deep however.

 I was having a look at the movement to see if there was anything obviously wrong,  it had been fully wound, the balance appeared undamaged and free and apart from a couple of missing screws from a bridge it all looked good, just no go! Putting some slight pressure against the  centre wheel there was a slight 'click' and away it went, running! So far it seems to be keeping time.

Oddly enough the dial appear original but has no signs of any 'Movado' branding.

Sorry about the ghastly too narrow  strap, didn't have a good one the right size!

Absolutely gorgeous. Got a bit of a Seiko obsession at the moment!

Greetings watch fans, I am wearing this Zenith Respirator cal 2562 automatic, circa 1968 today :)
The gaskets fail often on these early model, hence the dial damage...

Notwithstanding my well trailed predilection for GO, this (a hundred metres away, on the other side of the railway) is probably my favourite manufacturer at the moment.

Very impressed with their obsession with detail, and of course hand working. Also, super customer service.

Been invited to visit the factory in July :yes:   --  will report back.
