Movado has a rich watchmaking history that began in 1881. Then as now, Movado is one of the leading Swiss watch brands. The reason for this was the constant pursuit of innovation and excellent watch designs. In 1945, Movado presented one of the world's first automatic wristwatches - the Tempomatic. Around 1956 the Tempomatic had been retooled into the Kingmatic, which was one of Movado's bestsellers in the 1950s and 1960s due to its robustness. Here you see an extravagant and rare white gold Kingmatic with a white gold bracelet from the 1950s.

The 18k white gold case measures 34mm in diameter and houses a silver dial with a very stylish design. The Movado logo can be seen on a square with a fine "petit tapisserie" pattern. The applied diamond hour markers alternate with baton-shaped silver markers. At 6 o'clock the dial is signed with the model name "Kingmatic S".

A highlight of this watch is the original white gold mesh strap, which is even rarer than the watch. The folding clasp bears the Movado logo and the 750 gold hallmark.
