    It's easy to know all the modern reference numbers, but having an eye for vintage pieces is a completely different skill in its own right.

    What exactly do you want to know? You have already identified everything. What's missing?

    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.

    I doubt that I would be able to help anyway, but the photos aren't showing up on my browser.

    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:

    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.

    For any inquiries regarding vintage Doxa watches, please read the highlighted text in my vintage Doxa thread. Sorry, but I will not respond to PMs on the matter.

    Great, thanks!

    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).
