  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1945, Movado developed the caliber 475 which had the particularity of being composed of two elements: the base movement on top of which an additional calendar mechanism was placed. Although available with a vast variety of dial and case configurations, the major part of the production of these calendar wristwatches, named “Calendograph” were produced with a grey dial displaying the day and month in a European language.
    The present subtle pink gold wristwatch with fancy lugs displays a striking black glossy dial beautifully adorned by elongated pink gold Arabic numerals, but what really differentiates the present watch from its peers are the day and month discs in Chinese. Most probably intended to be sold in China, the present watch has hardly seen any wear and is presented today in almost mint condition.
