Description

Here is a classic vintage solid 14k gold Movado triple register chronograph with fancy "turtle" lugs and the reknown calibre 95 movement! Movado was one of the first Swiss watch manufacturers to produce wrist chronographs, beginning in 1912, and Movado produced the first split-seconds chronograph in 1921. While Movado was reknown for the manufacture of their own innovative chronograph movements, in 1936 Movado commissioned Frederic Piguet of Le Brassus to produce the chronograph calibres 90 and 95, which are recognized as among the finest mechanical chronograph movements ever produced! Here's the details on this highly collectible complicated timepiece: MOVADO (14k Three-Register Chronograph) - Excellent 34mm signed solid 14k gold snapback case(A96462, 49029) with flat chronograph push buttons at 2:00 and 4:00, ribbed sides and fancy flared "turtle" lugs (42mm lug to lug), signed 17 jewel calibre 95 chronograph movement, excellent aged silver satin dial with three registers (constant seconds, minutes to 60 and hours to 12), raised gold dot markers and even hour arabic numerals, gold stick hands and chronograph sweep seconds, black leather strap. The signed solid 14k gold snapback case on this piece is in excellent condition, and features ribbed sides and fancy flared "turtle" lugs. This is one of the rarest, most beautiful, and most collectible Movado chronograph models. The signed 17 jewel calibre 95 chronograph movement is running fine, keeping excellent time, and the chronograph functions work as designed. The design and function of the calibre 95 chronograph movement is unique, with the bottom push button controlling the starting and stopping of the chronograph movement, allowing for split times, while the top push button is the reset button. The signed silver satin dial is in excellent condition with aging and slight wear. The watch is finished on a generic black leather strap. RARE AND BEAUTIFUL SOLID 14k GOLD VINTAGE MOVADO CALIBRE 95 CHRONOGRAPH WITH FANCY FLARED "TURTLE" LUGS! Sell for $2795 plus $40 US or $60 International Express shipping.
