Movado Calendoplan Reference 8137
This Movado Calendoplan ref. 8137 has an 18kt yellow gold case manufactured by Ed. Wenger, SA. With faceted, downturned lugs, the watch wears slightly larger than its 34mm diameter (excluding the crown). The watch has its original snap-on caseback, dust cover for the movement and appears to be unpolished. The dial has aged to an attractive brown/cream and has its original applied gold hour markers (including Arabic 12 o’clock marker) and sector ring that uniquely bends around the stepped date window at 3 o’clock. The original, gold baton-style hands have aged nicely, consistent with the dial and hour markers. The printing of the railroad-style outer track and sub-seconds display is consistent around the dial and shows minimal signs of wear.
The watch is powered by a Movado caliber 128 that contains 15 jewels. The signed movement shows some wear consistent with the rest of the watch and is running well, keeping accurate time. The caliber 128 features an early iteration of the ‘quickset’ function for the date and features a pusher at 4 o’clock used to advance the date independent of the time of day.
Curated by Wind Vintage. Ships separately. Please allow an additional 7-10 days for delivery.
Vintage watches are mechanical objects that can require service of the movements and all these watches have been worn in the past. Since these pieces are vintage or pre-owned, please expect wear and patina from past usage and age.
Mechanical watches do not keep perfect time like a battery-powered watch. In addition, they do require service occasionally and the service can be somewhat costly depending on what the watch requires for optimal timekeeping. Similar to vintage and new automobiles, regular maintenance and care is recommended for the lasting reliability of your timepiece.
Vintage watches are not water resistant and not waterproof, unless rigorously tested and certified otherwise. If dunked in water, the watch can flood and be destroyed. Water can also enter the watch in high humidity environments and damage the movement and dial as well as hands. We suggest not swimming with vintage watches or taking them in a sauna or similarly humid environment.
If dropped, mishandled or otherwise abused, the movement or other parts of the watch can be damaged. Please handle with care.
Care has been taken to try to ensure the watches are running and in good condition. Please note that all watches and items are offered and sold "as is". We hope you enjoy this item and wear it in good health for years to come!
