I have several watches where this is the case. After ETA stopped selling their movements to non-Swatch Group watch companies, good Swiss movements were hard to find, and smaller companies had to settle for what was available, that would work for their new designs. When setting the watch, when you pass midnight, you can hear the click of the date wheel advancing on your no-date dial watch.
