  • Catalogue Essay

    The present pair of Movado wristwatches consists of a beautiful yellow gold chronograph wristwatch ref. 9038 from the 1950s and a stainless steel time-only wristwatch ref. 11179 from the 1960s. With acclaimed heritage of over 139 years of watchmaking, Movado was first established in 1881 by Léopold Achille Isidore Ditesheim, who was only nineteen at the time under the name “LAI Ditescheim & Freres SA” and was later changed to Movado in 1905. Since then, the firm has continued to thrive within the industry creating elegant timepieces with varying complications.

    The chronograph wristwatch from the 1950s displays a typical design of the respective era with a 35mm diameter case, blue tachymeter scale with a red outer minute track. The applied gold numerals are also reminiscent of the 1950s.

    The stainless steel time-only ref. 11179 from the 1960s exudes a different vibe to its other timepiece offered in this lot, giving the new owner a vibrant selection of alternative styles reflecting each respective era. Featuring a metallic silver dial with a guilloche center, the style is most definitely bold adding a bit of flamboyance to the time-only piece.
