with Felsa movement.....Not pretty but keeps very accurate time after all these years. It was an estate item which a firend gave me free...love it! My trusty backup if ever I need one watch which just works!

Maybe not PRETTY like you said, but that watch has TONS of CHARACTER and could probably tell some cool stories after its LONG life!

REAL nice watch Thian ! Vintage 1948 Calvan Swiss.. Icon_smile I always like textured dials like this. They
help add a little excitement to a watch imo. Also like the shape of the
hands, along with the numbers. Like Alan said, there is alot of character
in this watch. It has a personality all it's own, and that is part of what
makes it so cool ! Vintage 1948 Calvan Swiss.. Icon_cheers

thanks, guys....there is something nostalgic about the older vintage dials. One fellow has a newer Seiko Sarb series with all numbers ...and then I checked my collection and sure enough....not one had ALL numbers! haha! maybe my age calling me back to the good ol' times hehehe!
