A nice Movado triple date calendar watch with moonphase, from the brand that first introduced triple date watches to the mainstream market back in the 1940’s
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
With a bit of detective work, we have discovered that Movado changed to a seven digit case reference system in 1983, so this watch has to be later than this, but the movement number is only 03 on the Movado system, so it must be quite early into this system. We have also found the original technical drawings published online, which are dated December 1985, so we deduce this watch was made circa 1986.
Quartz is the ideal power source for a triple calendar watch with moonphase. It means you don’t have to continually have to reset the date and phase of the moon, while wearing this in rotation with other watches. If you do need to reset the watch then you can pull the crown to the first click, turn it clockwise to set the date and month, and anti clockwise to quick set the moon phase. We use this website to set up moonphase watches, which makes life easy. The dial is very good, and the case is good with just slight wear on the high spots of the lugs and the thin bezel. The dial has gilt roman numerals that do catch the light nicely, and the circle at 12 is representative of the famous Movado Museum watch. The glass and leather strap are new, and the battery will be replaced before this watch is sent out and the watch set for your timezone.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
