In Esperanto, Movado means “always in motion”. With that in mind, it is no wonder that Movado has come up with a line of sports watches that look good while in motion. The Movado 800 series is an elegant collection of watches crafted from stainless steel.
Sporting the signature Movado dot at 12 o’clock, the rest of the face is a bit of a departure for Movado. Movado is known for its simplistic watch face designs with simple hands, a blank face, and no markings other than the signature dot. The 800 series faces feature a wavy design, and simple luminous bar hour markers. The date window is small, but easily readable at the 3:00 o’clock mark. The hands are oversized and luminous, making them easily readable.
The watch is well weighted, without being overweight. The stainless steel surfaces are brushed, with polished accents. The fold-over clasp has a safety that snaps into place, making the closure feel tight and secure. The unidirectional bezel is marked with large, easily readable numbers, and smoothly integrates into the body of the watch. The beveled design of the bezel gives the illusion of a lower profile. The watch has a screw-back case design, and is water resistant to 660 feet. The crystal is scratch-resistant sapphire.
Overall, the Movado Series 800 model 2600027 is a fine addition to the sports watch world.
