1967 11ALCD movement. Was it possible to set the date on this movement without having to spin the hour hand 24 hours, in other words, a crown that pulled half way out for date and then full out for time ?

I can't find a data sheet or parts list for this movement, is there a good repository somewhere ?

I believe that you should be able to run the hands past midnight so the calendar changes, then turn back past 8 or 9, then be able to go forward past midnight to advance again. I may be wrong, but give it a try.

The Ranftt site is a good resource for movement info and for the 11ALACD it indicates, as mentioned, that it doesn't have a date quickset so you have to go a little past midnight and then turn back to 9-10, then go back past midnight. Ranftt also includes info for things like the staff needed, hand sizes, lift angle, power reserve, changes in the calibre family, etc.
