Drawing influence from Bauhaus style, Movado watches are readily recognized by their minimalist designs and trademark moonphase apertures on their faces. A Movado is often the perfect choice for the understated male. But the Swiss watchmakers offer departures from their just-the-basics leanings to accommodate watch lovers of all shades. Let’s look at a few of the top choices when it comes to Movado watches for men.

Bold Chronograph for the Statement Maker

Men love chronographs and being bold (or at least looking like they are bold). That makes the Chronograph BOLD a fairly simple choice for a good men’s Movado watch. For a dressier look, choose the yellow gold model. Everything from the subdials, dial, hands and stainless steel link bracelet glimmer in gold on this 44mm timepiece. For a sportier style, go with a deep ink blue case with a matching bracelet and complementing dark navy dial. If you’re really going for a masculine look, check out the gunmetal grey model. It’s a smokey yet reflective timepiece that tells the world you like your refined style with a no-frills attitude.

Museum Classic for the Traditionalist

As its name suggests, this is a watch with a classic look and Movado’s signature minimalistic Museum Dial with a concave dot at the twelve o’clock position. It’s both simple and sophisticated, with a not-so-large 40mm stainless steel case and matching silver-hued hands. Put the Museum Classic on a black calfskin strap and you have an upscale accessory for nearly any dress occasion. It also pairs well with a stainless steel bracelet for a sportier look that’s more fitting for casual weekend wear. As with many Movado offerings, the nice price tag gets you an elegant timepiece that wears at a level that competes with higher-end watches.

Movado Connect for the Undercover Geek 

Similar to the Museum Classic in style but a world away in function, the Movado Connect is a smartwatch for men who don’t want to look like they’re wearing a smartwatch. You can get one with a conventional face, complete with the trademark aperture. Or go with the Perspective face that gives a 3D effect and adjusts for visibility with the movement of your wrist. Custom program the face to show only hour and minute hands or display widgets and shortcuts. But don’t expect to totally geek out with all of the gadgets of the higher-tech smartwatches out there. It has standard Google Wear OS and can easily handle email, apps, music and other smartphone essentials.

Series 800 for the Sports Guy

Movado casts off its signature minimalism with the Series 800. This is a sporty watch for the true sports guy’s sports guy. Water-resistant up to 200 meters, the Series 800 has a 40mm steel case with a prominent bezel that matches the dial color, which comes in green, blue and black. The dial, featuring a sun-ray finish, is basic in the best sense with simple silver stick markers that match Movado’s dot at the top of the face. There’s a traditional date window at the three o’clock position and the dial’s legibility is aided by markers filled with Super Luminova. Finished with a polished stainless steel link bracelet, this is a watch that beckons for an active lifestyle. It’s perfect for a day at the ballpark but still dressy enough for pairing with a suit at the office.

1881 Automatic for the Sophisticate

True, most Movado watches could be called “stylish.” But few ooze exactly the same level of sophisticated style as the 1881. This is especially true of the rose gold stainless steel model. Its round case delicately wraps around a black bi-level dial in an oh-so-elegant mixture of gold and black. With a supple black calfskin strap, this watch is perfect for business attire and dressy enough for a black-tie affair. It’s nice to know that it’s water-resistant up to 30 meters.  The scratch-resistant crystal will give you peace of mind that any unintended bumps won’t dampen the timepiece.

Heritage Calendoplan for the Adventurer

There’s something about vintage style that just makes you want to pack a bag and hop a flight to an unknown foreign land. The Heritage Calendoplan has its dressy side, with a polished stainless steel case and sapphire crystal topped dial. But a pronounced explorer-style triangle in place of Movado’s concave dot shouts out that this chronograph was made for globetrotting. The ready-for-travel theme is reinforced by a perforated cognac leather strap with white stitching that’s a perfect companion for a trip to far-flung corners of the world.
