Note: Adjusted to 5 positions
Curator Response: "5 Adjustments" is not the same as Adjusted to 5 Positions. 5 Adjustments = 3 Positions, Temperature, Isochronism.

Serial Number V582022 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: My watch indicates '5 Adjustments' as does the one
in the main picture on the database page, but in
the database chart it indicates only 3
adjustments. Were both made?
Curator Response: Common Misconception. 5 Adjustments does not mean adjusted to 5 positions. 5 Adjustments = 3 Positions, 1 Isochronism, 1 Temperature.
