    Help IDing Caravelle 666 Diver

    I just picked this Devil Diver up and havenít had any lucking finding any info on it. Anyone recognize it? It is a 1969 (M9). Second hand and case (recessed crown).

    Also, canít figure out quick set date... only one position on crown and 10-2 method not working.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Possibly the movement resembles the one in this Caravelle day/date auto diver:

    Schild apparently. AS20..something. This should have quickset in the middle position according to Mr Google, so I guess you have a problem.

    Chascomm,

    Thank you. All the info I found regarding the date quickset was indicating the middle position. I was hoping there was something I was missing!

    Thanks again.

    I have a very vague memory of handling a watch several years ago having an AS19xx that had some kind of quick-set on date only, but not day.

    You mentioned the 10-to-2 method. Did you try a wider change zone e.g. take it all the way back to 7pm and wind it forward until it changes? At what times do the day and date complete their changes?

    You were right... I had to take it back further... 7PM to just passed midnight.

    Thanks again for your hep.
