    I had a Caravelle when I was a kid after I drowned my last Timex and it wouldn't recover in Mom's oven. Would love to see the movement.

    The back (on the outside) will have a date code, such as N7 for 1977. As richiec mentioned, a picture of the movement would be nice.

    would love to take a picture of the movement but you need a special tool,to unscrew the back. But according to the code on the back N9. I looked up the code and it was made in 1979.

    Caravelle was a Bulova product. It was their method of marketing an inexpensive watch without the Bulova name. All that I have seen are 7J movements. The movements I have seen have been made in France, Swiss and Japan.

    These are durable workhorses and decent timekeepers.

    Caravelles came in all sorts of varieties and many were fairly nice and decent timekeepers.

    I am presently holding in my hand a caravelle with a base metal bezel and a stainless steel back (screw down).

    It has a bit of design on the dial--a screw down back--a 17 jewel automatic movement with day/date.

    The movement reads Bulova and made in West Germany with a case made in Hong Kong.
