    Enicar moonphase watch felsa 693

    Hi everybody I was wondering if I may be able to get some information on this watch. At the end of every month the month function has to be altered by the pusher as its not jumping automatically is this normal as everything else alters automatically.
    I am also looking to have the watch fully serviced it is running lovely keeping almost quartz time but having no history of the watch and being I am going to cherish it I think this is the best course of action. The only visible thing I can see wrong with it is slight plate loss and a very slightly bent seconds hand which I'd probably like to replace. A new crystal would be nice too.
    Hope somebody can help looking forward to any help or replies I am based in N Wales UK.
    Best Regards Martyn

    I am looking for the same answer. I own two triple calendars that have dates requiring manual adjustment.

    Hi and welcome. I'm not entirely sure about that Felsa movement but I had a triple calendar watch with a manual wind AS1380 and I had to set the month manually every month (the two pushers were to set date and month, the day was set by turning the hands 24h), so I think you should not be worried about yours. A slightly bent hand can be straightened by a watchmaker so no big deal here as well. First pic is not in focus but looks like a reprinted dial to me. Also, never ever turn your hands anti clockwise to go back through the day/date and always set the time at 6:30 (for example) to be sure to have all the calendar gears disengaged.

    Don't replace the original hand, just have it repaired. Also, scratches in the crystal may be easy to polish out unless there is an actual crack or major dent.

    I'm not an expert on this model and I'd have to research it to be sure, but at first glance I really don't see any obvious concerns with this watch, including the dial. I don't think I would do much to this watch at all. It looks fine.

    Indeed, with a couple of in-focus images the dial appears to be ok. At first glance in the OP the Enicar logo was a bit of a mess, including the automatic sign.
    Also, the crystal seems to have next to zero scratches so a little bit of polish can easily take it back it its glory.
    Have it serviced and let a watchmaker to straighten the second hand and you're good to go.
