2006: Series 800

The art of performance.  Series 800 by Movado – where serious sports function meets powerful design. A collection of watches and chronographs marked by sculptured contours and signature details that pay homage to the design legacy of Movado.

Crafted in Performance Steel, a surgical grade, hypo-allergenic stainless steel alloy, driven by precise Swiss-engineered quartz movements, and distinguished by black and brightly colored wave-texture dials, the first Series 800 timepieces offered men and women all the features and characteristics of a true sports watch: a screw-down case-back and crown to assure water resistance, a unidirectional bezel to track elapsed time, luminescent markers for visibility in low light, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal for optimum dial legibility and water resistance to 200 meters.

This initial line of active sport pieces was soon expanded to include retrograde and refined sport elegant models, special limited edition quartz designs, men’s chronographs with fixed aluminum tachymeter bezels, women’s diamond bezel styles as well as automatic pieces celebrating Movado ambassador Derek Jeter. Material innovations included a supple but tough XTremeResin sports strap reinforced by Kevlar®.

Uniting strength, beauty, design and performance, Series 800 challenged the competition with bold signature details that reflected Movado’s unmistakable aesthetic and quality craftsmanship.
