Description

Movado (“movement” in Esperanto) was founded by Achille Ditesheim in 1881 in the watch-making town of La Chaux-de-Fonds

The year 1935 saw the introduction of the first Movado water-resistant wristwatch, the ‘Acvatic’. This unusual spelling of the word is derived from the Latin word ‘aqua’ (water) and was first registered as a trademark on 13th February 1936.

Produced in various sizes the Acvatic had a screwed back with a lead gasket and a cork seal for the winding crown. It was developed by the case-making firm of François Borgel of Geneva, which was owned by three brothers called Tauber. They developed many other variously shaped water-resistant cases for Movado during the subsequent decades

Original radium dial and index, 28mm size and 40mm at the loops, seconds hand at six.
