Our Take

Movado, meaning ‘movement’ in terms of motion but also in the horological sense, taken from the Esperanto language, the brand has a rich art deco history is one of the top Swiss brands. This 1990s classic bi-metal edition is a good example of that and carries the minimalist trend that is so true to Movado. It has a plain black dial with Roman numerals, all under a clean, unmarked mineral crystal. The case is stainless steel and measures 34mm in diameter and 38m from lug to lug, a good size for a man, but may suit a lady too. The crown is unsigned and gold plated. There are some signs of wear on the case back, fading and some scratches from being opened, the model number is 81-A2-873.1 s/n 2203200. The precision Movado quartz movement works well and keeps time as you would expect from a Swiss watch. The strap is mostly stainless steel but also has some gold plating in the links, s/n V971H, and will fit a wrist of approximately 6.7” or 17cm. The watch is available without the original box or paperwork, but a gift box will be provided. It has also not been pressure sealed so waterproofing can’t be verified.

About Movado

Although American owned now, Movado can trace its roots back to 1881 as the LAI Ditescheim & Freres SA company, which changed to Movado in 1905. Movado are perhaps best known for the ‘Museum’ watch.

The Museum watch is a design classic, so good in fact that in 1960, it was selected for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the key to it is simplicity – a relatively plain face with a marker at the 12 O’clock position.

Simple yet very stylish, a Movado will work with anything, and mark you out as someone with an
incredible eye for style.
