I posed an appropriate question, including this from Blackdog:-what-time-is-it wrote:Gut feeling is it has a date, just not visible!
I'm sure somebody will ask and clarify.
Technical info from Sellita http://www.sellita.ch/scripts/calibres/ ... 0-1_39.pdf
to Adrian who is the Chief Designer at CW and received this reply;-Blackdog wrote:You could just use a dial with no opening, but the date wheel will still "click" when it changes every 24Hs and when it is manually advanced in position 1 of the crown.
Removing the date wheel is enough to completely avoid the "click". But, indeed, you will have a ghost crown position. This can be corrected if you also replace the setting lever jumper in the keyless mechanism with one from an ETA 2801 (or whatever the Sellita equivalent is)...
Most manufacturers just remove the date wheel. If CW also mods the keyless that would mean real attention to detail.
"To answer your question we tend to change the set lever on the movement to remove the date position when there is no date.
Give a much more qualitative feeling."
I trust this clarifies the matter.
