    Triple date moonphase chronographs are usually Valjoux 88. Obviously, Universal Geneve 481 triple date moonphase chronographs. Now basic triple date moon were more common and produced by many companies. Again many were equipped with the Valjoux 90. Universal Geneve triple date moonphase have I believe caliber 291 ! Lecoultre has a 494 caliber in house movement. The Lecoultre and The felsa 693 both have the month change from 31st to 1st !
    Gubelin TDM have the felsa 693.

    Found this Dreffa chrono two years ago here in Germany. I´m thinking about trading it for an early El primero...
    Already have an UG 481 tri compax and still missing an EP movement in my small chrono collection.;)

    Farsi, but it's curious that this one, like the other, uses Arabic (Indic really) for 6 (٦). I wonder if maybe it changed later or if it is a tradition like the roman IIII.

    Edit: Well, thinking about it, given that the only differences are 4 and 6 it could be either way: Farsi with an Arabic 6 or Arabic with a Farsi 4. The only way to know would be to have the days and months wheels.

    @CanberraOmega, any chance we could see a larger picture of your day and month?

    @DirtyDozen12 nice. Well that doesn't look like any of the day names I know in Arabic.

    Ok, I asked a friend who knows all three languages involved (the day/month windows use the Nastaliq style, which made me think it could also have been Urdu).

    My friend confirmed that this is indeed Persian: the name of the day is the same in all three languages so it doesn't help, but the sure tell is the name of the month which is a Persian only word. He also agreed that the number 6 is a mystery.
