In 2015, Movado unveiled a new generation of modern automatic timepieces with the launch of the 1881 Automatic. Powered by fine Swiss self-winding movements, this contemporary collection was designed for those with an appreciation for Movado’s modern design aesthetic as well as the intricate craft of mechanical timekeeping.
Now for 2017, Movado perpetuates the collection’s blend of sophisticated engineering and distinctive modern styling with the introduction of a striking dress model for men. Featuring a simple round 39.5 mm case, 9.0 mm deep, this elegant watch is crafted in rose gold PVD-finished steel, topped by a sapphire crystal. An exhibition case-back reveals the intricate workings of the fine Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement housed inside.
Encircled by a reflector ring with contrasting sandblasted finish, the black sunray-textured dial creates a subtle yet striking impact discretely detailed by a stamped minute/seconds index with applied rose gold-toned hour marker accents, matching thin dauphine hour and minute hands, a stick seconds hand, and Movado’s signature concave dot at 12 o’clock. The date is displayed via a small round aperture at 6 o’clock.
Presented on a soft black textured calfskin strap and finished with a rose gold PVD-finished classic tongue buckle, the new 1881 Automatic is distinctive in design and engineered for precision. Water resistant to 3 ATM / 30 meters.
