This elegant two-tone dress watch from Movado's Kara series has a bold Museum dial and a slender, graceful silhouette. The black dial has gold-tone Dauphine hands and single concave dot marker at the 12 o'clock position. This is Movado's signature dial, made famous by American designer Nathan George Horwitt in 1947. Horwitt intended his design to be evocative of a sun dial, with the dot representing the sun at high noon. The dial is framed by a round steel bezel. Graceful curved gold-tone lugs secure the case to a slender silver-tone bangle bracelet that fastens with a jewelry clasp. Other notable features of this watch include precise Swiss quartz movement and a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Water-resistant to 30 meters, this watch can withstand splashes and brief immersion in water; however, it is not sufficiently resistant for swimming.
Movado, one of the most celebrated watch brands in the world, traces its origins to the small village of La Chaux-de-faunds, Switzerland where, in 1881, a young watchmaker named Achille Ditesheim hired six assistants and opened a small workshop. He called his company Movado, a word which means, roughly, "always in motion." The company grew and prospered, evolving from a small pocketwatch manufacturer into a leading innovator and designer of precision wristwatches. Throughout its history, Movado has maintained its place at the pinnacle of innovation and excellence in design, craftsmanship and technology. Movado watches are crafted by highly-skilled watchmakers to meet the exacting standards of Swiss time technology. They are accurate to within seconds a year. All Movado watches are sealed and protected against water, moisture and dust, and individually tested to meet strict international standards of quality. A long-time dedicated supporter of the arts, Movado has, itself, been the recipient of over 200 international awards. Movado watches can now be found in the permanent collections of over 20 museums worldwide.
A collection of jewelry-inspired, petite bangle watches in polished solid, two-tone or gold-plated stainless steel, available with diamond accents. Iconic Museum dial. Swiss quartz movement. Sapphire crystal. Water resistant to 3 atm.

I don't mind too much as the price I paid was not as high as this.
For those who question -- this was a genuine Movado, it had the card, etc. Just the warranty would not be honored by Movado which explicitly excluded any scratches or any other signs of wear and tear and was only for a year so it would not have done any good and certainly wasn't worth $300 more in price.
If I could get it again for the price I paid, I would buy it (or switch to the Amorosa) except that I realize I really miss not having the date on the watch. So I am looking for another brand. Gucci, I read, scratches just as easily. SO I will probably have to go up in price to get both elegance and sturdiness. In the price range listed here on Amazon -- I would stay away from Movado.
I ordered the watch for my wifes christmas present on Dec 5th but did not receive it until a week after christmas. When it came the crown to set it was frozen so we could not set the time. We send it back and received another one this one worked but it looked like someone ran sandpaper on one side of the band it was all scuffed up.
I wish I did'nt try and save money and spend the extra 200 dollars and bought it somewhere else at least I would have got a quality product that Movados should be.
This is my worst experience with Amazon but it only takes one like this to be a very disatified customer.
