  • Catalogue Essay

    The Sub-Sea is a line from Movado that over time has gained a cult following due to the exceptional quality of their cases, movements and stunning dial designs. The present example is an example rarely seen on the market, especially when found in such wonderful condition.

    No one could be blamed for mistaking this Sub-Sea from a few feet away with a Patek Philippe 1463 with Breguet numerals. This should come as no surprise since its case was made by Taubert & Fils – the same casemaker used by Patek for their 1463 watches. The Movado is however distinguished by its three-register dial, with a red telemeter scale and blue colored snail-shaped tachometer scale. This example is housed in an exceptional 35 mm case, powered by Movado’s own, in-house C 95 M manual-wind movement.

    The present watch is fitted with a stainless steel mesh-style bracelet, which elevates the look completely. Presented in overall superb, original condition, it is hard to believe this watch has remained in such excellent condition over its life span.
