Today we look at Movado watches. I am sure everyone knows and pictures a watch with no hour index and a dot at the 12 o’clock position when Movado is mentioned. Yes, the Museum Watch, so called as it is featured in a number of museums throughout the world. But we are not looking at that watch but another.
But first a bit of history about Movado. Movado as we all know today was founded by a young (19 years old) watch maker, Achille Ditesheim in 1881. It was only named Movado in 1905. As such Movado will be celebrating its 130 anniversary next year.
Anyway the watch we will be looking at is the Movado Men’s Junior Sports Watch. It is a very different watch from the Museum Piece as it has Arabic numerals as the hour index, chronograph sub-dials, 6 hands and even date. It is indeed very different from the Museum watch.
It is a sports watch. The model number is 0605968. I like it. The dial is black and as earlier stared, it has Arabic numerals as the hour index except at the 2, 6 and 10 o’clock position where the chronograph sub-dials are. It is replaced with a baton index. The date is at the 4 o’clock position, hence no hour index.
The watch comes with a uni-directional bezel, which is made from stainless steel, as is the case and bracelet. The steel bracelet has a hidden deployment.
