Is there something that I am not seeing ?

Hi there, it was my first too and i’m so far impressed by it regarding that it’s a rather unexpensive (by no means cheap as in lacking precision) automatic watch.

That +/- is a calibration lever used in the factory to adjust the time keeping (or later if needing the watch serviced and adjusted) and doesn’t move from its set position.

This particular movement does not have a reserve indicator.
