Watch of the Week: Movado 1881 Automatic

Watch of the Week Movado 1881 Automatic

If you’re looking for a watch with heritage and horological cache but don’t want to spend the next two years’ worth of your salary, the mid-range market is a good place to start. You can find a lot of Swiss names, all with brand histories going back to the 19th century, which offer quality pieces for not a lot of money. In this situation, I recommend Movado’s new 1881 Automatic collection.


Featuring the maison’s iconic museum dial, the 1881 Automatic can be as dressy or as sporty as you want it to be. It’s not a watch that dictates your look, but instead is one that goes with pretty much anything you wear, whether it’s casual weekend attire or a full-on work suit. The way it handles itself aesthetically provides versatility so you get a lot of opportunities to wear the watch. It adds a polished touch to an off-duty look, while the dial is still quite rugged enough so you don’t like a dandy when wearing it with formals.
