c.1925 Movado Art Deco Watch
A very rare and handsome stainless steel round case set in an open work, fine, rectangular frame. The dial is an unusual applied Breguet numeral designed dial with a subsidiary seconds hand sweeping through at the 6 o'clock position. The dial has been re-finished at some point in time, but not recently, and has toned into a rich vintage off-white hue. The blue steeled hands are original and add to the classic horology feel of the watch.
The watch is powered by a 17 jewel, manual wind, Movado caliber 950 movement. The caliber 950 was introduced in 1920 and remained in the line for approximately 10 years. Although modern Movado watches may leave much to be desired, the brand has a storied history. They made some incredibly important watches and clocks over the years. Produced for luxury retailers such as Cartier and Tiffany & Co. and produced some stunning and unique pieces over the years. This being a fine example. It certainly has a more refined feel than other vintage watches, and will have on the wrist that cannot be duplicated thanks to its unique design. A version of this model appears in the most important book on Movado by Osterhausen.
A rare example of a fine time only watch from a golden era in watch making.
