The “facelifted” Calendrier Lefty model was unveiled at Baselworld 2009 as a new version from Azimuth Round-1 collection.
This new addition to the Round-1 collection is an expansion to the highly successful Calendrier series of watches. Powered by an ETA 2836 base movement that has been heavily transformed by Azimuth’s master watchmakers, the watch is able to tell the Day, Date and Month under the sapphire crystal which are all activated by pushers that are flushed with the case. Each Calendrier comes with a pin like tool to allow the user to activate all these functions independently.
At 42mm, one suspects that this Calendrier Lefty was created to placate collectors who are in love with the Pilot watches but view them as being too massive at 47mm. This 42mm case will suit this group of collectors who prefers a smaller case.
The deep brown dial makes it look as though the dial has aged to what is nowadays known as “tropical” colour to many avid collectors. The Arabic numerals further add to the nostalgia of a military-looking timepiece.
