Movado has come a long way since the release of the Museum watch. These days this Swiss watch maker is concentrating on, not only the continuation of the Museum, but the enhancement of their line. The use of varying and unique materials, as well as different design elements, is giving Movado an edge you wouldn’t expect. This is apparent in their collection of sport luxury timepieces. The Sport Luxury models, like the Junior Sport, and Junior Sport PVD are not you’re typical Movado. They have bold features and masculine, rugged exteriors. The materials used are solid steel and sturdy PVD. The Swiss quality we have come to expect is in place, but the styling has been beefed up, with extra touches, not normally found in Movado creations. These watches come with Quartz movements, which keep the weight down, and offer precision accuracy. The dials on the Sport Collection are much busier than your Museum dials, which adds to their interest. Movado still holds the Museum watches dear to their hearts, but these new and innovative pieces create diversity, which can only benefit the brand. Check out the Movado Sport Luxury watches…you’ll be glad you did. Their style is undeniable.

As a brand whose exquisite watches have made their way into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, Movado Watches employs the most refined use of linear design, finesse and modernity into their timepieces.
The latest incantation of Movado Watches is the long-awaited Red Label Museum Calendomatic Picture, a model that represents that company’s early designs dating back to 1946. Using a self-winding Calendomatic movement, the new Movado Red Label Museum watch maintains the same characteristic design concepts that have defined the brand for decades.
Measuring 42 mm in diameter, the round case of the Red Label Calendomatic is crafted from silvery stainless steel, which contrasts beautifully with the black leather strap and black dial. In addition to the signature Movado “dot” at the 12 o’clock hour, the watch features a convex date windo at the 6 o’clock hour, a function that is generated by the ETA 2824-2 progressive Calibre movement.
The new Red Label Museum Calendomatic from Movado Watches embodies the style and sophistication that has made the watch company such an icon in the world of horology, and it has enjoyed enormous market success since its release earlier this month.
If you find yourself drawn to the aesthetic quality of Movado watches, you are not alone. A perennial favorite among the upper echelons of New York’s artistic community, Movado’s Museum Watch has won numerous accolades, even making its way into the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.
While the classic Movado watch is best known for its minimalism, the company has recently released an exciting collection of luxury sports watches. Men will appreciate the Movado 800 Series, with its round stainless steel case, Arabic chapter numerals, and rotating bezel. Including both a tachometer and chronograph dial, this Movado watch is water resistant up to 200 meters and capable of calculating elapsed time and precise speed measurements.
Another popular Movado watch for men is the SE Sports Edition Chronograph, with its casual stitched blue denim dial. The hand indicators are silver-toned, which matches the luminous silver dot at the 12 o’clock hour.

It may not be as sporty as the 800 Series and SE, but it is an exquisite men’s timepiece, with all the hallmarks of a classic Movado watch.
There is something going on with talk shows and watches. During the month of December, two different luxury watch brands were mentioned on two of the most watches TV talk shows. On “Ellen” not only did Ellen herself sport an all-white Michele watch from the brand’s Tahitian collection, every person in the audience got one!
Michele watches are undoubtedly hot watches; especially these that are made from all ceramic, creating a cool look in black, white or pink, not to mention that the bezels are studded in sparkling diamonds.
On, December 18, on the “Tyra Banks Show” the Movado Bold Collection – “watches and chronographs with a new attitude, energized by color” was mentioned as one of the top ten hottest, must-have holiday gifts of the year.
These Movado watches are described on the company’s website as being “over-sized watches made of high-tech composite material / stainless steel cases. Dials with bold, new sunray dots and bright color details, with leather straps that lined in purple stitiching.” These men’s and women’s watches come in all black, all white, black and purple, or all black with green stick hands.
Aside from both being mentioned on daily talk shows, and stating with “M”, another thing that Michele and Movado watches have in common is that they are both well-made, stylish watches that are very reasonably priced. The Michele watches that were given away were worth $2,000 each (mostly due to the 100 plus diamonds on each watch), while the Bold by Movado pieces come in under $500 each. Now we’re talking! Who needs to spend upwards of either of those sums on a watch? Remember if you shop smart, you can still shop.
We knew the luxury watch market was in bad shape; practically each and every watchmaking company has suffered financially in one way or another, but here comes some more bad news.
Movado, hoping that its third-quarter shares would meet its forecasts and provide good headway for the upcoming year, was way off target. Wall Street has reported that shares in Movado plummeted nearly 18% to $8.90 after closing at $10.85 a few days earlier.
How quickly things change. A year ago, during this same time, Movado reported a profit of $15.7 million, or 62 cents a share. These recent third quarter results made it so that Movado had to report a net loss of $20.9 million, or 85 cents a share. “Excluding one-time items, Movado said it earned 12 cents a share, significantly worse than analysts’ estimates for 65 cents.”
In addition to making Movado watches, the company, which also makes Concord and Tommy Hilfiger watches, said its sales dropped 20% to $129 million. This is bad news considering that stock analysts had forecasted revenue of $141.2 million.
In response to these numbers, Efraim Grinberg, Movado’s CEO, has said “we are very disappointed in our third quarter and year-to-date results. We experienced higher levels of de-stocking in the marketplace than originally anticipated as retailers continued to focus on very tight inventory control.”
One of the things that have negatively affected Movado, as well as other luxury watch brands, are the high levels of watch and jewelry retail store closures and the subsequent inventory liquidation.
