    I saw a Movado today that I liked. And I never liked Movados!

    What has happened to me?
    Ever since the Fortis purchase, my watch sickness is re-awakened. I used to be satisfied with one a year. Now it's turned into one a week.




    I went to the mall. Wandered around some jewelry stores, JCPenny, and then Torn-something or other... heh heh.

    That's where I found the Movado Eliro shown above. The pic does not do it justice, really. It looks much nicer on my wrist. $2095 MSRP is rich. Half off would be too. We'll see if I see one again for a good price when we're on vacation in the carribean. Again, I'm not a big Movado fan, but this one felt really nice on my wrist. The right weight, the right curve of the case, and I dig the rubber inserts on the links. There was one at a jewelry store with a rubber bracelet, but it was not as nice feeling, even at $990. The guy there took note of my Fortis, and thought it was quite striking. So did the saleslady at another store.

    I did not go to the Movado store itself. Figured I'd get out of the mall with my wallet intact.

    Movados are very nicely finished, well made watches.
    They fail the in ever present "I'm a TOOL WATCH guy" factor though.

    I think movados are original and well made. I have a blue face Sports Edition Movado that gets compliments everytime I wear it, even more than my omega seamaster.

    I thought Movado were on the right track with the Series 800 line; sporty, clean, colorful, and most of all....Legible! Cons: quartz-only, integrated bracelet, and of course....overpriced! Don't see a Movado in my future unless something in their line changes drastically. From the looks of things however, I doubt they will miss my business!
