  • Catalogue Essay

    The “Tempomatic” was Movado’s first wristwatch powered by their in-house self-winding movement, the caliber C.266, which began production in 1945. The large size case on this example from 1950 impresses with its 37 mm diameter. The present watch is in absolutely original condition with a crisp case, beautifully preserved lugs, and its factory finishing intact. The large silver dial is highly attractive with raised, gold Breguet hour markers and outer minute and seconds track with modern, stylized numerals along its curved circumference. With its superb proportions, it’s an elegant and highly uncommon watch with timeless styling looking equally good today as it did in the mid-20th century.
