Why We Love it

A time-only Movado from the 1950s — really any mechanical Movado from the 1950s for that matter — offers a ton of value in the watch world. But this is no ordinary Movado; rather, it’s signed by the world-famous retailer that sold it, New York’s Tiffany & Co. Back in the mid-20th century such double-signed watch sightings from notable jewelers were more commonplace. These days, it’s much tougher to find a “Tiffany stamp” out in the wild.

Movado, established in 1881, made some of the finest time-only and complicated watches of the 20th century. Their famed triple-calendar watches of the 1940s and ‘50s and Super Sub Sea chronographs from the 1960s are highly sought after by collectors, and for good reason — combining high-quality movements with attractive design, they’re the type of timepieces that draw people headfirst into the horological world.

Designed in the mold of other classic 1960s dress watches such as the Patek Philippe Calatrava, this simple Movado is the perfect accompaniment to a special night out. Housed in a 33.5mm 14K yellow gold case with a signed crown and an acrylic crystal, it features a satin silver dial with applied indices and a crosshair sub-seconds display, a matching dauphine sword handset, and the manually wound Calibre 125 beating away within.

Svelte and handsome, this is a dress watch for someone who’s gone deep down the horological rabbit hole.

Brand Story

+
While Movado is now best known as a producer of fashion watches like the Museum Watch, Movado's roots go much deeper than that. The company’s history reaches all the way back to 1881, when watchmaker Achilles Ditesheim opened a workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds. His brothers Léopold and Isidore joined him in 1886.

Production from that point on proved how true the name brand was—it means "always in motion" in Esperanto. Throughout the 20th century Movado produced incredible mechanical timepieces. They gained notoriety for the sophistication of the equipment and technology they employed, including electric tools.

Unlike many of their counterparts, Movado's movements were designed and manufactured in-house.

In the late 1960s, they were acquired by Zenith, and enjoyed perhaps their greatest period of success as the subsidiary of that brand. Their chronographs (which used the famous Zenith El Primero movement), particularly, were successful sellers. But the extent of their offerings didn’t end there. They also made killer dress watches like the one we have here.
