PG Time E355

Description

Yet another movement with no references at all in literature or online research.

The caliber E355 is a simple pin lever movement with just one jewel and no shock protection. The only speciality is the false moon phase indication: Instead of the date numbers, the date ring was printed with ten different moon phases. Theoretically a nice idea, but with a major fault: A full moon phase takes 28.5 days, while one full rotation of the date ring takes 31 days.

How serious a watch with such a useless indication can be taken, shows the usage gallery below: Three printed chronograph dials with printed(!) hands and two completely useless turning rings (one from 0-60, the other one from I to XII), whose sole purpose is, that the watch can contain two more crowns and thus look expensive.
