The present lot is a rare chance to purchase a particular and unusual watch. It is a Movado vintage piece made in the 1920s with tonneau shaped case also known as Petrograd. With the typical Art Deco style, this very lot has been manufactured in stainless steel and during all its life have maintained a great quality of case and dial. The carrure is unpolished with thin sealed lugs. The argentè dial has that vintage essence with a patina that is spreading all over. The big painted Arabic numerals have luminous material still in good conditions with a gorgeous ocher color.
