    Please help identify the Kelek movement (four year calendar???)

    I recently got interested in Kelek (now owned by Brietling which is where there 1461 calendar comes from).
    Some info here and here.
    However, I am intrigued by this movement which is suggested to be a four year days calendar.
    it would be useful if someone could shed some light on the movement....
    Has any other brand used this movement?
    Thanks.

    I have to say that, to my eye...that dial screams $5 Chinese piece. The info you reference also says "Kelek" isn't a brand that's used for full watches by Breitling; the facility seems to exist but it's been renamed.
    And it is also said, "go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say no and yes."

    well according to the owner it has a reference number 101-01A. To my eyes it does not look Chinese..

    It is certainly not chinese. A similar Kelek (different dial layout but also displaying date, day, month) was based on a 2892-2 + Kelek module. Valid also for a Theorein/Kelek watch. When Rüdiger Lang started Chronoswiss he used Kelek movements as well.
    Kind regards

    I am interested to find out if this calendar movement (4 year??) has been used by others (Chronoswiss, Theorein ....). See top right in the picture for another variant.
