I think the design looks cheap, the numerals on the bezel and the band especially.

The same goes for just about every Movado watch I've seen. There are much better looking watches for that price range.

I don't think it necessarily looks "cheap" but I don't think it looks like a $250 watch. To my eye it looks like those $80 Fossil watches that were really popular ~5 years ago. I'd save the money for something nicer.

Don't like it.

If you're really looking for an Orange dial watch then go with the Seko Orange Monster.

Movado isn't even the johnson and murphy of watches. You can do better.

My rule is never buy a new watch under $1K. This is one such instance.

That's a terrible watch. It's fke-nice. The only Movado worth thinking about is the Museum Watch --and it's really not a horological specimen to be appreciated so much as it is a bold work of product design. Want a $250 orange face sports watch? Then buy a Seiko diver watch. They make a number of automatics in that price range. Better still would be to buy a used Hamilton or a Seiko 5 auto (yours for <$100).

I usually decry the elitism on here, but the other posters are right. $250 is almost the maximum I'll pay for a watch, so I know what it can buy. That's a shitty looking watch, so much so that I thought you were trolling when you posted it. It looks exactly like a Fossil watch I had about ten years ago. For $250, you can get much, much, much better watches.

I rather get the Seiko Orange Monster. It looks a lot better in person.
