  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1945, Movado pioneered the cal. 475, distinct for its two-part construction: a base movement crowned by an additional calendar module. Though myriad dial and case options existed, most of these "Calendograph" calendar wristwatches left the workshops bearing gray dials with European day and month displays.

    The present subtle pink gold example, however, diverges from its kin with a captivating black gloss dial lavishly decorated with elongated pink gold Arabic indices. Yet the true distinction lies in the Chinese day and month discs, likely destined for the Chinese market. Exceptionally well-preserved for its age, this Movado “Calendograph” is a rare gem ready to grace the collection of a discerning connoisseur.
