Movado Watch Repair and Service
Movado Watch is a renowned watch company whose name means “always in motion”. The company started in 1881, manufacturing in a small workshop in La Chaux-de-faunds, Switzerland. It was the gifted Achille Ditesheim along with the group of his six employees who initiated the grand move to establish Movado Watch. Initially Movado watches were fabricated and manufactured by hand. Shortly after, their unyielding effort got the anticipated dividends. By the year 1899, they were rewarded with nearly six “first-class Official Rating Certificates” in their category. The subsequent years came with even better results and they were honored with the ‘Silver Medal’ at the Universal demonstration in Paris.
In 1946 the unique “Museum Watch” which displayed a solo dot at the number 12 on the dial, took the market by storm. This inimitable characteristic of the watch symbolized innovation unheard of before. It was profoundly accepted as an enduring set in the “Museum of Modern Art” in the year 1969. It was the result of teaming up with designers like of Andy Warhol, who collaborated with the production process of “one-of-a-kind watches”, which are now an integral feature of museums, galleries, and watch collections. Movado is one of the high-end watches I repair and here is Movado’s recommendations for serving.
Repairing your Movado Watch
Movado is a precision timepiece and it needs regular interval servicing for it to work precisely. Movado recommends complete repairs be done every 4-5 years. The 2 recommended repairs are –
Partial Maintenance (whenever the battery is changed)

Final inspection, visual and technical
