Departing slightly from the minimalist design it's cultivated over the years, Movado's Series 800 combines an eye-catching luxury watch with the practicalities of a sports watch without wholly sacrificing the spare modernism that is its trademark. A confident complement to both business suit and wetsuit, you'll know this is still a Movado watch thanks to the recognizable large, luminous Movado dot at 12 o'clock, which has become symbolic of Movado watches and pays homage to the famed Museum Series timepieces.
This Movado Series 800 stainless steel, Swiss quartz watch for men has a large, round watch case that's topped by a perfectly circular unidirectional rotating bezel with a silver ring and elapsed time markings in an austere, Helvetica-like font at the 10 minute marks. The outer black ring of the bezel includes scalloped indentations for an easy grip even under sweaty conditions. The case is made from performance steel, a higher grade of stainless steel that provides excellent durability and strength. Additionally, the low nickel content in this surgical steel quality offers improved hypoallergenicity.
Befitting its more sporty orientation, the wavy black dial is complemented by luminous bar hour markers, small minute indexes, and a date window at 3 o'clock. It also features oversized luminous hands and a red seconds hand with a luminous dot at its base. This precisely timed watch has a Swiss-made quartz movement, which is accurate to 60 seconds per year.
Other features include a sapphire glass crystal for optimal scratch resistance, screw down crown for maximum protection, and water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet)--which will stand up to the rigors of recreational scuba diving. It's completed by a black Thermoresin strap, which offers built-in UV protection and includes a fold over safety bar at the clasp for added security while participating in active pursuits.
