Swiss watch brand Movado unveils the sleekly muscular Series 800 Datron™ Chronograph, a contemporary sport watch inspired by the classic 1970 Movado Datron self-winding chronograph. This signal 40mm automatic timepiece for men is the first entry in the brand’s new Collectors’ Edition series.
Being produced in limited quantities, Series 800 Datron is crafted of solid Performance Steel™ and powered by a fine 37-jewel ETA self-winding movement with 42 hours of reserve power. Like its prestigious namesake, it is distinguished by an arresting tonneau-shaped case with two chronograph pushers, and a striking two-tone dial with contrasting chronograph counters and small seconds subdial.
Richly detailed by applied hour markers and printed minute index, and signed with the name Datron, the updated dial is available in a sophisticated color palette rendered two ways: black with silver soleil eyes, or silver soleil with black eyes. The square date window that characterized the original Datron has become a modern round aperture, in homage to the iconic Museum dot.
Exuding a casual elegance that bridges day to night, the Series 800 Datron chronograph features a bold brushed/polished link bracelet with butterfly deployment clasp. Protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the Series 800 Datron Chronograph is water resistant to 5ATM.
