Movado FB case (c. 1950s)
The original dial is in excellent condition, it has applied Breguet style numerals which are in rose gold to match the lugs (age has rather dulled these down now and they're almost black in appearance). The simple, clean legibility of this dial and handset is really what distinguishes this watch - its a lovely example of mid 20th century watchmaking.
The watch is powered by a Movado cal 125 movement, which has been fully serviced. I confess I was delighted with the performance of the movement - the time keeping is accurate to within a handful of seconds per day. Interestingly the movement is marked for export to the USA, denoted by the "unadjusted" on the main plate - watches which were adjusted were subject to a higher rate of tariff in the USA. I purchased the watch here in the UK, so it's a well travelled little thing!
