Cal. 211 was introduced in 1953 and retired around 1963.
The most unusual feature of Cal. 211 is the dual wheel “big date” shown at 6:00 on the dial. An early example of this complication, it counts to 39 days rather than 31, requiring correction at the end of every month using the inset pusher at 8:00.Images are taken from official publications and are used here for commentary and educational purposes.
