Additional Information: 

This watch has a fabulous red fade dial, and looks great with the stainless case.  This should have a 2180 movement, but apparently was switched out to a 2182 day/date (with no window on the dial to show the feature).  Still love my "Frankenwatch" as it's in excellent condition and runs well.

Is your way back machine stuck in the 70's?? You sure have picked up some beauties.

Thanks JP.  I've had most of these when I joined the site here, I just didn't take the time to add them to the database.

Too bad, this one's heading to the Non-Conforming category. What a shame to hide a perfectly good Day/Date movement behind  a 'plain' dial. (Why doesn't Mrs. Thatcher DO something?)
