Suggestions on replacement - Movado

Hi all,

I didn't want to hijack someone else's thread. I'm looking for something to replace my beloved Movado. I've had it about 20 years. A few? years ago, I replaced the mechanism. I just brought it to the jeweler to replace the battery, but they just called. It's not the battery. I'm hoping it's the mechanism again.

Anyway, I really love this watch. It's sleek, feminine and I like the size. It works for daily wear and dress up nights. I've been googling around looking for something similar style wise, but most of what I see are big, round faced watches. I'm not a watch buff so I have no clue where to look as far as specific brands. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the crappy picture.

I found a Rado that's close. And a Cartier but I'm not loving the face.

another Movado ?

on the pricey side is RADO, kind of a 1980's throwback neat piece. https://www.rado.com/en_us/ceramica-...r21702722.html

then Bulova or Citizen offer small women watches https://www.bulova.com/us/en/product...ml?cgid=womens

then the ultimate small women's watch https://www.jaeger-lecoultre.com/us-...steel-q2608440

Then these very nice pieces https://www.hamiltonwatch.com/en-int...re-quartz.html

Rolex Lady-Datejust, 28mm (automatic)

A bunch of variations....just visit the Rolex website.

https://www.rolex.com/watches/lady-d...-0007/bracelet

Might take a while though before you can get one at MSRP....


And if you want to stick with a small quartz watch, Cartier Tank....

All the Movado watches are round. I found this Rado, which isn't bad. I'll check out your other suggestions, thanks.

There's a Baume et Mercier you might like:



They're an excellent brand - not flashy, but people "in the know" will appreciate your taste.

That's pretty, thank you. I'll check it out. It's in the running. I can see me winding up with more than one

Your watch appears to be the Eliro Ref: 84-C1-415-AS and retails new for $2000 ±.

I would get the new movement because it it shared by many other makes. My Tag/Heuer needed a new engine and it only cost me $60 which was a brand new original Swiss Ronda quartz mvt.

Thank you. I am going to get it repaired but may as well get a new watch while I'm at it.

Seiko tends to punch above their weight in quality vs price. Here are a couple similar examples to your Movado:

I recently got my Seiko grenade watch and very pleased with it. I also own Omegas, Longines, Oris.

I like the MOP dial on that one.

If you're comfortable grey market, jomashop has good B M prices:

It's pretty for everyday wear but the one shown in earlier posts with the diamonds has got me considering another

Very nice watch.

If you don't have to many watches, go for it.

I know people say that you can never have enough watches. But how often do you wear a watch when you have 20 or 30+ watches.
I probably have over 20 watches and I find myself wearing the same 5-6 watches all the time.

I've worn that same Movado every day for the 25? years I have it. I just reached out to Movado to see if it can be fixed. My jeweler told me the watch was discontinued and they no longer have the movement, but Jane said the movements are shared over certain brands. Fingers crossed I can get it repaired. If not, I may buy the diamond one too.

Hopefully you can get it fixed, if not the one with the diamonds is a really nice watch.
Good luck 👍.

I also wear a couple of my older watches all the time, you get used to them, so I just grab one of them over a newer one.

I'd consider checking with an actual watch maker/repair shop versus a jeweler. I went to one local to me to see if he can fix a very old Citizen watch. Citizen also doesn't have the movement any more due to age. He was able to source through his network components needed to repair the watch. He was able to get the time function working. But was unable to fix part of the calendar function as the replacement part he got was also broken.
