Movado*** Oversized Black Radium 40mm*** 1938
MOVADO Oversized Stainless Steel Back (Chrome case) Calatrava, Black Radium Dial, 40mm, 1938
Serial: 37874 / 0681440
Circa: 1938
Reference No.:

DIAL: Black dial with radium Arabic numeral and blued hands.

CASE: 40mm stainless steel back (chrome case), snap back, acrylic crystal

MOVEMENT: Sub seconds, manual wind, 15 jewels

BRACELET: Black leather strap

CONDITION REPORT: The dial has some visible marks and hairline scratches, but is original with radium lume as well. The geiger and UV confirm. The hands have, however, been color matched. The chrome case is worn and has some scratches as well. Overall a stunning oversized watch and impressive on the wrist.

NOTES: The large 40mm “non-magnetic” chrome plated and steel back case is unusual in size for such a watch from the late 1930s and most likely intended for military use. Its serial numbers resemble the other oversized Movado we had.
