GAVOX P-40 Curtiss - the Movement

Like the other current members of the GAVOX collection, the Curtiss P-40 Ref. 350 utilizes one of Seiko's quartz movements.  Seiko Instrument's VD75 is the engine powering GAVOX's Ref. 350.  It is fairly straight-forward to set and the functioning is smooth.

This set-up provides hours, minutes and (via the sub-dial at 6 o'clock) seconds.  It also provides day of the week (9 o'clock) and date (3 o'clock).  The time keeping has been perfect.

Thursday is right around the corner!  Just a few more days before the P-40 must re-fuel and depart for for home base in Belgium.  Stay tuned!
