The Movado Sapphire achieves its distinctive appearance through a flat sapphire crystal that flows seamlessly to the edge of the round, bezel-free case, creating a smooth, fluid, unbroken surface. Launched nearly a quarter of a century ago, Sapphire was one of several key Movado families of the period that sought to bring the simple geometry and design purity of the acclaimed Museum® dial to the watch case that framed it.
Now for 2015, Movado adds two new men’s models to this iconic Movado collection. Featuring the collection’s thinner new 40mm cases, they include two ultra-modern bracelet models and two elegant strap styles – all distinguished by the signature bezel-free case with edge-to-edge sapphire crystal that defined the original Sapphire watch.
The two new models present a fresh interpretation of the famed single dot dial enriched with subtle new texture and tone-on-tone detail. These new metallic sunray dials feature an outlined signature dot at 12 o’clock, modern skeleton hands and an etched minute track with pinpoint cabochons marking the hours.
Black leather straps with polished classic tongue buckles distinguish the two other new men’s Sapphire designs. The first features a polished yellow gold PVD-finished steel case and buckle, with matching, monochromatic yellow gold-toned sunray dial. The second model has a black PVD-finished steel case and buckle. Its black sunray dial is detailed by polished black hands, cabochons and outlined dot.
With contemporary styling and fine Swiss craftsmanship, these newest additions reaffirm the Sapphire collection iconic design legacy. Water resistant to 3 ATM / 30 meters.
