    I disagree, looks great! A 1940's watch is suppose to have patina and yours is perfect!

    This is a beauty! At least it has markers on the face so one can actually tell time by it, as opposed to some Movado watches of today. :D

    LOL, I guess it's because this one is really a Zenith.

    Do you mean it has a Zenith movement? It says Movado on the face and band.

    It was made in the early 70s while Zenith owned Movado for a few years. The watch was sold with both Zenith and Movado as the name on the dial. It's really just a rebranded Zenith (this was due to trademark issue with the Zenith TV company).

    Its the mid. I have a 7" wrist and this one fits me perfect. I still think I'll buy the large one when they are back in stock though.
