The sophisticated new Datron® line inspired by the classic 1970 Movado Datron self-winding chronograph was unveiled at Basel in 2009, and two years later a trio of special edition Datron chronographs were presented at the fair. Now joining this distinctive and popular family from the Movado heritage category for 2012 is the Datron black PVD-finished stainless steel quartz chronograph.
An all-black, brushed and polished PVD finish combines with the matching black dial to create a powerful look of dark, tone-on-tone mystery. Smoothly contoured, the 40mm wide tonneau-shaped case is crafted in brushed black PVD with two matching chronograph pushers. A polished black PVD-finished stainless steel bezel provides subtle, intriguing contrast. Protected by a curved antireflective sapphire crystal, the distinctive black lacquer dial is detailed by 3 black timing subdials, thin silver-toned hands and applied hour markers, a printed minute index, and contrasting white Big Date display at 12 o’clock.
The classic sport link bracelet is rendered in brushed black PVD-finished stainless steel with polished black center links and a hidden polished steel deployment buckle.
