I like it too. I'm waiting for a watch to jump out and bite me.........scream at me to buy it. So far, only the cheaper Movado Bold....




...the black Movado Extreme SE and that Citizen really jump out at me.

Movado Bold looks good if you can get it for $400-$450. I wouldn't want to pay over $500 for a quartz

If the Museum watch is trendy, it's a long lasting trend. The design is from 1947.

Macy's is offering 25% off for Friends & Family for 3 days. It'll bring the cost of that particular Bold down from $650 to $487.

You just let the cashier know that you'd like the 25% F&F applied, but the purchase needs to be made between 11/28 and 12/1. They are even doing pre-sale discounts. In other words, you can buy today using the PROMO, but you can't pick it up until the 28th.

Fair point.


I don't mind the original Museum line, but the ones at the top of this page are too trendy for my liking.

Post some pics! I'd love to take a look.

Fwiw I think it looks fantastic on your wrist. I love the Movado autos. They are perfect for someone who likes the look but has a bigger wrist.

Dont listen to lowdog, hes mad because he paid $600 for a watch worth $28.

Thanks Afghan. I think that I just need to let the amount sink in. Spending thousands on a watch goes against my philosophical ethos. LOL!

Had this a lot longer than my M3. 13 years next month. It's a classic, but I still get compliments quite often.

No pics from my Father in Law yet. I'll keep bugging him. I think he thinks it's a waste of time. If I wasn't an ethical guy, I'd tell him it's not worth anything and buy it for $25 from him! Instead, I keep telling him he may be sitting on a treasure.

I picked up my Hammy Maestro from watchwarehouse.com and was really pleased with the transaction. I was able to use their coupon code for jewelry to get an extra couple $ off the price as well.

Hope this helps!
