Affordable Movado Watch For Men: Movado Museum Classic. Are you looking for a watch that does not break your bank account but still looks sophisticated and classy? Well, you can’t go wrong with the elegant Movado Museum Classic. Designed by American designer Nathan George Horwitt, the Movado Museum Classic simply features the two hands and a solitary dot at high noon.
More details from the manufacturer: “40 mm stainless steel case, black Museum dial with silver-toned dot and hands, black calfskin strap with stainless steel buckle.”
How affordable is the watch above? Currently, you can buy it for the price of US$495. Pretty good deal, no? We told you it ain’t going to break your bank account. Like us here at Famewatcher, the reviewers at GQ Magazine gave the Movado Museum Classic a thumbs up and included it in their list of “The Best Watches You Can Buy for Less Than $500”. Of course, you can opt for any of the pricier versions (up to as much US$1,295) such as this one:
Details from the manufacturer: 40 mm yellow gold PVD-finished stainless steel case, round black dial with 11 diamond markers (0.043 t.c.w.), yellow gold-toned dot and hands, stainless steel and yellow gold PVD-finished link bracelet with deployment clasp.
Truth be told, we prefer the first one (aka the cheaper one) better. The pricier one does not actually have the iconic look of the original and, to be honest, looks a bit gaudy. Hehe. Seriously, whoever thought of including this in the “Museum Classic” line must be out of their mind. To paraphrase Tip Carter on Rhythm and Flow: “Listen, Mr. Movado. Are you saying to us with a clear conscience and a pure heart that this is a Museum Classic? I’ve been looking at it for a long time, and it sure does not look like one.”
You know who knows his Movado Museum Classic? Basketball superstar Stephen Curry, that’s who. The folks at whatkindofwatch.com as well as at ethoswatches.com screencapped these photos of the two-time NBA MVP wearing a Movado Museum timepiece during a post-game interview. [Want more men’s watches?]
You know why Stephen is a sophisticated dude? Because he opted for the cheaper, more iconic Movado Museum Classic rather than than the pricier and somewhat gaudy passing-as-a-Museum-Classic. Looks like the timepiece he is wearing is the one priced at US$595 on the Movado website.
