The watch is from Circa. 1940s and is in worn, vintage condition. As you can see from the photos the watch is in overall great condition for its age, the dial is an early refinished dial.

On the reverse, an 18ct Yellow Gold snap-off case back complete with case maker stamp and hallmarks, inside a manually wound Movado Cal. 420, 15 jewels, beating at a leisurely 18,000 beats per hour, this base movement has a calendar module designed by Frédéric Piguet, fitted with a Breguet hairspring, first introduced in 1947 and remained in production until 1954.

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of solid gold Movado's and I'm fortunate enough to have a few lovely examples in my personal collection, so it will be no surprise I am a huge fan of this wonderful 18ct Yellow Gold Triple Date model in 32mm which looks amazing on the wrist! Due to the size, the price is insanely good, so don't hesitate to add this gem to your personal collection.
Achilles Ditesheim at the age of 19 founded LAI Ditesheim & Freres SA in 1881. With the help of 6 watchmakers, he built a workshop in the small village of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. In 1905 Achilles Ditesheim renamed his company Movado meaning “always in motion” in the international language of Esperanto. In 1947 Nathan George Horwitt created the single-dot watch dial. In 1960 Horwitts' original design became the first watch dial ever to be accepted by the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 2017 Movado Group purchased the OliviaBurton brand based in London. It is one of the fastest-growing fashion watch and jewellery brands in the UK. In October 2018 Movado Group acquired MVMT which specialises in selling quartz watches, sunglasses and jewellery. The Movado Group also owns Concord, Ebel.
