Förster 226


The caliber 226 is part of the 220 series, which was launched in 1969. It contains an instant changing date indicator with quickset mechanism and a weekday display, which shows the abbreviated day in four letters. Other movements normally only use three letters.

On the technical side, it contains an incabloc shock protection and a rotor which winds the watch in both directions. Its height with 5.2mm is rather low.
