Another new model from Movado, featuring the classic museum dial has been released. The watch comes in stainless steel, rose gold plated and yellow gold plated versions. They all feature 36mm cases, quartz movements and 30m of water resistance. The "K1" crystal they use is mineral rather than sapphire. However, this type of crystal is more scratch-resistant than normal mineral crystal. The dial has very little contrast, with the dot, hands and dial all being the same color. The large dial opening is ringed in 90 diamonds, adding a little bling to the watch and giving it a slightly more feminine look, although Movado lists the watch as unisex. The bracelet is a style not seen on many watches. The "H" shape in the bracelet runs end to end with a smaller polished link in between all the way down to the deployment clasp. The watch retails for a hefty $1,395 in stainless steel and $1,495 in yellow and red gold. Pictures of the watch and the bracelet (because my description may be hard to picture) can be found on Movado's website here: http://www.movado.com/movado-collections/movado-bold/movado-bold-3600149.html. This watch is the top of the line in the Bold collection due to the fact that most watches in this collection are on silicon bracelets with bright colors and this could signal an end to this playful style of watch that cheapens the brand's reputation. Only time will tell (pun intended).
