Quality Swiss made Felsa 4007N automatic movement with date.
Setting The Watch
Unscrew the Divers Crown and it will gently pop out into position one, you can manually wind the Watch in this position. Pull the crown gently out and you will be in position two, setting the time by moving the crown.
This movement features a semi-quickset date feature, The date changes instantly at midnight. To set the date, the time is moved forward from 20:30 to 24:00, then back to 20:30 and forward again.
Please ensure you push the crown back in and gently screw it back to the case when finished.
The Movement is wonderful and Clean whilst ticking away strongly and keeping good time.

Resolute Black Divers dial, this tough guy is still alive and kicking.
The Dial has taken a bit of a battering over the years, there is all sorts of patina throughout the Dial, my guess is that it has taken some sort of of moisture damage at some stage in its life and that has left its mark. There was a presence of glue on the Dial that was cleared away during service. The Lume markers have gone absolutely nuts, I have no idea what's happened to these guys. All in all, all this makes for a cool vintage dial in my opinion, I love the Uniqueness and this has barrow loads here.
This is the original Untouched Vintage Dial.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!! (evidently lol)
Case & Bezel
Top Quality Swiss Made all Stainless Steel Squale Case.
Case Ref: 1157. With Serial Number in between the lugs has all correct Vintage Squales have.
The Case has some age related scratches and dings but nothing to call home about.
Most importantly, the case seems to of never been polished.
Markings are legible to the case back, some old case opening marks to the back..
Bi-Directional Bezel moves nicely, the Bezel is in good condition for its age with age related marks throughout but nothing major.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter: 37.3mm (roughly)
Diameter with bezel: 37.6mm (roughly)
Diameter with Crown: 42.2mm
End of lug to lug: 47.1mm
Lug Spacing: 19mm
This Case was rated 20 atmos Waterproof back in the Day, it is now a Vintage Timepiece, it has NOT been tested for Water Resistance and if you wish to Submerge this Watch, you will need to have the Watch Professionally Resealed before doing so!!
Hands, Crystal and Crown
Hands are in cool Patina'd order. I believe these to be Original, as they are found on other Jungfrau models and have seen this centre seconds hand on other Squales, although the majority did have lollipops, but they are so aged and consistent with the Dial wear it's hard to envisage them not being original.
Crystal has been replaced as part of the Service.
Original Screw down crown, the crown is in fair order, it sometimes takes a few go's to get the Crown to screw onto the threads due to wear but it will go on and I thought it was a nice touch to keep this Original.
On a new 19mm Grey Leather Strap, with White stitching and Steel buckle that compliments the Watch very well indeed. Lovely strap.
Comes with a free GungaDin Watch Box as pictured.
