I finally pulled the trigger on a gorgeous little 1950s Movado cal. 95M chrono that I had been lusting after for some time...
...absolutely one of the best values out there on the vintage market bar none:
-Unique in-house column wheel chrono movement where the bottom pusher starts & stops while the top pusher resets the stopwatch.
-Minute counter is calibrated to 60 instead of the more common 30 minutes.
-Stainless steel screwback case made by FB (originally Francois Borgel, by this time Taubert et Fils), who also made water resistant cases for Patek, Vacheron and the Mido Multi-Center.
-Can still be had for a comparative song compared to watches of equal quality from the same era such as Rolex, Omega, Breitling, etc.
There is a lot to love about this elegant chronograph!
Best to all & HAGWE,
