    Can you tell if this might be genuine?

    I just picked this up at a little thrift shop for $10. Can't open it til I get home, but wondering if there is anything that jumps out as fake right now. Thanks! Will try to get to movement later.

    Always buy first and ask later?

    Lol I had just popped into the place during my work schedule today. Really didn't have time to post a pic and wait for an answer. I've spent more on damaged pin lever timex's, so I didn't figure $10 was gonna hurt me. Lol It looked ok to me but I wasn't real sure.

    Just got home and opened it. Looks legit. It has a 321 battery in it, so the wife is checking if they carry one at work (CVS).

    Some of us live on the edge....adrenaline in the veins and grab it while the getting is good. I got a Movado Museum Auto in the box for $100 at one point....the seller said it needed a battery....It had a display back. Some are risk takers. We look back and go dang it I should of not have bought this....others times you look back and go...what a great deal it was.

    The way I look at Movado watches like the one the OP has....why would you turn it down for $10? $50...yeah now you are getting too rich for my blood unless it is mechanical. $5 battery and you are in for a whopping $15. If it does not work...well sell it for parts for $30 and you are ahead.

    Re: Can you tell if this might be genuine?

    Another question tho', does anyone know how to date these. I'm reading that with it having "Swiss MOVADO Quartz" on the dial, that it was made before 2000. Is there anyway to track down the exact year? Thanks!

    The movement is rather modern so late 90's is my guess.
