By TLex I like this 300m rated 'non-diver' offering from MOVADO more than I do any of their actual divers. An exquisitely styled tonneau-shaped case and exhibition case back, fixed bezel inlaid with black sapphire crystal and textured black rubber strap make this watch pretty damn desirable. Not to mention its generous lume application.
Just think if MOVADO had gone the extra mile and included a uni-directional rotational divers bezel, we could have been looking at one of the hottest new divers released this year . . .
From MOVADO Meticulously engineered. Masterfully refined. Movado is proud to premiere a heroic new pinnacle collection for men and women: Movado Master™. With its dynamic design boldly rooted in the strong industrial and architectural expressions of the Bauhaus movement, the muscular Movado Master™ propels the powerful purity of the iconic Museum dial in a daring new direction. Machined in solid stainless steel, the angular tonneau-shaped case with screw-down crown features a gear-edge black sapphire or double-row diamond-set bezel, and raised door-style hinges.
Functioning as attachments for Movado Master's rubber deployment strap, the flexing hinges provide striking architectural definition as well as wrist-conforming comfort. Movado Master's striking asymmetric matte black or white dial with custom-designed luminescent hands, explores and expands the circle-within-a-circle motif of the iconic Museum dial, adding new dimension and texture.
The dot at 12 o'clock, with a new convex center, resembles a push-button. A new off-center inner circle is textured with a dot-grid pattern, mimicking the texture of the black strap, or pavé set with diamonds. Around it, new luminescent or diamond-set indices, graduated in length, delineate the hours.
The 44mm men's model, with fine Swiss automatic movement, custom-designed black 'M' rotor, and exhibition case-back, is water resistant to 30 ATM. Offering several diamond-set case and dial options, the 34mm
