At Baselworld this year, Movado showed its all-new collection of men’s automatic replica watches. The 1881 Automatic replica watch Collection combines familiar Movado design characteristics with elements of the brand’s revamped look.
The 1881 Automatic replica watch is a three-hand watch with a date display at 6 o’clock. It has the spare, stark appeal that has characterized Movado ever since the “Museum” watch became the centerpiece of the brand in the 1980s. That automatic replica watch, and those that followed it, were defined by the prominent concave dot at 12 o’clock. In recent years, Movado has moved beyond this completely minimalist design to incorporate some other elements on the dial.
The 1881 Automatic replica watch is a good example of this: it has a subdued minutes track, which has been stamped on the dial, and applied hour indexes. The dial is divided into an inner section and an outer ring. The interior has a sunray finish; outside of this is a “reflector ring” that has been sandblasted.
The 1881 Automatic replica watch has a diameter of 39.5 mm and is 9 mm thick. It is cased in stainless steel and has an exhibition caseback to reveal the rotor. It is water resistant to 30 meters. The watch is available with a black dial or a blue dial.
