I'm unsure of the date - not quite sure if it's 1930s-1940s. Also, it would be nice to get a reference number. Even better, there's a catalog somewhere that identifies it.What exactly do you want to know? You have already identified everything. What's missing?
Can't show the movement right now, since it's being serviced! Are you looking for the serial number? I'll have that soon. But I know it's a Caliber 75. More on the movement itself here:Hi,
Could you show us the movement please ?
Great, thanks!Given the design, I would say early to mid 1940s.
Oh, and there is no such thing as a Movado Calatrava, nor is there any other Calatrava that's not a Patek.
It is not and never has been a nickname for non-PP watches - at least not in any watch literature that has passed under my eyes (and yes, I've read a fair amount). The only ones so far using (I should probably say: violating) this description are hoodinkee and we should not do them the favour of perpetuating the error. The reason why I say "violating" is that (i) Patek make some of the choiciest watches in the entire world, (ii) hoodinkee are known to charge several times what others charge for an identical watch so that (iii) it is not unreasonable to suspect that hoodinkee are trying to capitalise on Patek's good name and reputation to sell their ware at exorbitant and excessive prices.And yes, I know. I think it's a nickname of sorts for watches of that era with the same case (same as the ref. 96 of PP).
Indeed, but this is not restricted to the Hodinkee gang. Long before sellers learned how to turn famous model or disigner names to cash..... it is not unreasonable to suspect that hoodinkee are trying to capitalise on Patek's good name and reputation to sell their ware at exorbitant and excessive prices.
