The Timex caliber M41 belongs to the second generation of electromechanical Timex movements. It bases on the caliber M40, to which a date indication is added.
The raw and undecorated movement was initially made at the Laco/Durowe factories in Germany, later the production was moved to Taiwan.
Three jewels (two white bearing jewels for the balance wheel and one ellipse jewel) were enough for stable and precise rates. Thanks to the large LR44 battery, it had an autonomy of one year.
The empty dial side shows the preparations and spares for the simple date mechanism. At 5 o’clock, you can see the driving wheel for the hands.
The date indication mechanism is a very simple construction without quickset possibility. For a movement, which runs one year without interruption, that’s sufficient.
