If you took a survey of several different males from varying age groups, income levels, and backgrounds, and asked them “What is the most important piece of clothing or accessory that you own?” a resounding majority would say, “It’s my watch.” Most men consider their watch the cornerstone upon which their personal style is centered. A man’s watch can say a lot of things about him. It can give details of his profession, indicate if he’s a casual spirit, or even distinguish him as a worldly figure. And ask a man what brand of watch he associates most with style and luxury, and the name “Movado,” is guaranteed to be heard. Founded in 1881 in Switzerland, Movado has created some of the most famous timepieces in history, and continues to offer the pinnacle of quality watches to those with discerning taste and style.
When shopping for watches, one rule is more important than any other — never buy a digital watch! In fact, many men prefer not to have any numerals on their watch dial, believing this gives the watches an air of sophisticated simplicity. A beautiful example of this is the Men’s Juro by Movado which has a round silver-tone stainless steel case capped by a coordinating bezel and highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Many of these watch models are characterized by the Museum dial; a round, black dial absent of index markers and featuring the signature Movado dot at 12:00. The Men’s Temo happens to have the Museum dial, as well as stylish silver-tone hour and minute hands, and a reliable push button clasp. For something with a remarkably modern style that still maintains classic Movado craftsmanship, one should look no further than the Movado Men’s Junior Sport. This sleek, streamlined watch is composed of both brushed and polished stainless steel and would look perfect in the board room or on the tennis court.
Another popular line of timepieces are Movado’s Two-tone Watches. The Men’s SL is a new edition to the Movado family, and features an opaque black dial with regal, gold-toned hour and minute hands. Swiss quartz movement ensures your timepiece’s function. The classic Movado Men’s Swiss Quartz Watch features a two-toned, silver and gold bracelet, and a hidden clasp to guarantee style. A highly regarded timepiece, the Men’s Folio has been a consumer favorite since it was released. The Folio is a handsome watch, suitable for any occasion. Its two-tone stainless steel bracelet securely fastens the silver-tone case and gold-tone bezel around the black Museum dial.
Of course, some customers are only satisfied with the best, most luxurious models the Movado has to offer. For these connoisseurs, the Men’s Elliptica Alligator Strap Watch is a most desirable timepiece. Its rectangular dial, available in black or silver-tone, displays Arabic numerals at all hour positions and is equipped with silver-tone hour and minute hands. An elegant, genuine alligator strap with a black finish secures this remarkable timepiece to your wrist.
Looking for the perfect blend of luxury and sport? Then you will be drawn to the Movado Men’s 800 Series Watch. It has a round stainless steel case, topped by a rotating bezel and black Arabic numeral chapter numbers. Complete with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, this watch is water resistance rated at an astonishing 200 meters. Also including chronograph and tachymeter dials, the Men’s 800 Series is capable of recording of elapsed time and precise calculations of speed.
Movado also offers watches in a wide range of women’s styles. The Women’s Buleto Watch features a polished stainless steel bracelet comprised of removable circular links to adapt to wrist size. The black museum dial features the signature Movado dot at 12:00, and has silver-tone hour and minute hands. The Women’s Vivo Diamond Accent Watch has an elegant silver-tone stainless steel semi-bangle bracelet that complements the lovely white mother-of-pearl dial. The silver-tone stainless steel case is covered by a sapphire crystal and features diamond accented lugs.
Much like the men’s model, the Women’s Elliptica Two-Tone Watch is one of Movado’s most luxurious models. Gold-tone Arabic numerals appear horizontally set on the opaque black dial. A stainless steel case is surrounded by a stylish bracelet comprised of stainless steel and 18 karat gold. A similarly remarkable model, the Women’s Trembrili watch is a brand new Movado timepiece with a striking mother-of-pearl dial and a bezel adorned with two rows of shimmering white diamonds.
When you think about it, buying a new watch is much more important a decision than we often consider it to be. When you extend your hand in greeting, your watch can be the first thing a new client, even a new friend notices. A watch should capture your personal style and elegance; and few watches foster feelings of elegance better than a Movado.
