New Jersey headquartered Movado has introduced a new generation of modern automatic timepieces with the launch of the men’s 1881 Automatic, a collection blending sophisticated engineering with streamlined style.
The watches are powered by Swiss self-winding ETA 2824.2 or Sellita 200SW movements encased in a simple round 39.5 mm case crafted in polished and brushed solid stainless steel or gold PVD-finished stainless steel, and topped by a sapphire crystal. The exhibition case-back reveals the workings of the movements.
Encircled by a reflector ring with contrasting sandblasted finish, the bi-level dial is discretely detailed by a stamped hour and minute index with applied hour marker accents, 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.
The stainless steel version comes with a choice of blue or black dial with silver-toned accents and subtle white lettering. The yellow gold PVD-finished model features a black dial with gold-toned accents and lettering. All three watches are presented on soft black leather straps finished with a matching stainless steel or gold PVD-finished classic tongue buckle.
