    I've recently found one of these Seamster Calendars, the pictures attached are the same as the watch I have found. Wondering about the originality of these watches, ref for both should be 14701-1SC looking at the case and caseback, with a cal 562. I've done a lot of research on the 14701 models and these are the only examples I've found that are the same as the watch I have, same dial and hands. Any insight is appreciated!

    My understanding is that the 14701 should have dauphine hands not alpha - that's how it's shown in the archive anyway.

    Will find a pic of mine in a bit!

    Do you have any knowledge of this "calendar" dial being on the 14701? I've found a few but not sure if they are franken.

    The 14700 is time only but the 14701 does have a date window.

    Only other things I've noticed are wrong crown on first photo and second one looks over polished.

    Alpha hands are equally correct for both 14700 and 14701.

    Ah didn't know that - so does it work both ways? are dauphine also OK on a 14700?

    I've got a 14701 but actually prefer the simpler dial of a 14700 but not the alpha hands! :)

    Not sure tbh - will have a look at mine later but think it's OK.
    (not that there's any guarantee mine is correct!)

    Any thoughts on a 14701-1SC with alpha hands and no lume?

    It seems odd for this reference to have no minute track, but maybe that's not unheard of?

    Looks fine to me. There was a discussion about the absence of minute/second tracks in another thread recently.

    Sooo many dial variations.
