Movado, rare "Chronostop", stainless steel, water-resistant, silver dial, deco index design, powered by Cal. 478, circa 1940s. Powered by a modified Cal.478 based on the Cal.470, which was used in many models, including the three-hand models and triple calendar. Unlike chronostops such as Rolex and Longines, where the chronograph seconds hand is always running, this is a fascinating example of Mobard's ingenuity, which is more like a chronograph that always stops when not in use. The water-resistant screw-back case from Fran?ois Borgel with the same mushroom crown as the Patek Philippe Ref.565 and the silver dial with a rare deco-design luminous Arabic numeral are also fascinating in design. It comes with a genuine buckle from a later date.
