1950s Movado M95 Sub Sea with box & papers

One of the most underrated chronographs out there, the Movado Sub Sea stands out thanks to a superb design, a great movement and an exceptional construction. In particular, the case made by François Borgel , famous for having produced the case of the Patek Philippe 1463 chronograph.

This exceptional example from the 50s (no “M” on the dial above the Movado logo) features a rare design: all silver dial, with golden sub-registers hands (including the two usual serpentine hands), long tritium indexes and a chapter ring, where most references show a tachymeter scale.

Oh, the best part ? This exceptional timepiece comes with its original box, guarantee booklet and tag.

The watch is in mint condition. The dial is exceptionally well preserved, the handset is perfect, the case is most likely unpolished and scratch-free. Pushers and crown are original and also in top condition. The watch has never been sold in retail, but bought from an old watchmaker stock, explaining why the guarantee booklet is free of writings and retailer stamp.
