70’s rewind: Movado Datron Quartz Chrongraph

The leading Movado watch model in 1970, the Datron chronograph with a classic tonneau-shaped case and self-winding movement, was available with a rotating bezel and a number of dial variations. 

Now, Movado invite fans of the brand to travel through time with the new Movado Datron. Swiss based Movado -  Esperanto for continuous movement - is reissuing its iconic 1970 model in virtually identical form. The distinctive tonneau case surrounds a round dial.

 The original Movado Datron Chronograph

Previously silver and black, the 40mm watch is now tone-on-tone. In another nod to the original, the large date is now shown in a square window rather than the circular aperture that signs most of Movado's watches today. The Datachron – soon shortened to Datron® - reprises its heritage handsomely in an urban watch with a brushed and polished steel bracelet. The watch retails for around US$1,670.00.
