I decided to part with some of my vintage chronographs in the next future in order to make room for something big.
So I am glad to offer to this community a - IMHO - lovely example of one of the coolest and more undervaluated vintage chronographs in the field: Movado M95s ones.
There are many variations of this lovely calibre, that Movado made across some decades. From the early ones to the latter ones (the very well known panda executions) there are truly some hidden gems.
The example I am offering here is to my eyes one of the most appealing pieces available from a long time: it features a wonderful multiscale dial with red and blue/purple graphics, as well as a superb warm lume tone. The dial, originally silvered I think, has now a warm golden patina on it. There are some signs of age of course, but this increases charme, in my opinion.
Hands are superb: warm lume on main hands, stunning burgundy red chronograph hand matching with kris hands, the first ones I saw in my collector's life.
Case - 35mm wide, all stell - is in lovely conditions and is made by Borgel, very well known to be the casemaker of some of the greatest Patek chronographs ever.
Movement - still preserves blued screws - is in fully working conditions, not freshly serviced tho. Inner anti-powder protection is still present.
For this lovely watch my request is 5900€, shipped anywhere. I have multiple references here or in other communities, so you can buy with total confidence.
This watch was featured in a past Hodinkee's "Bring a Loupe" article.
Thank you all!
