Is he a professional jeweller and is he a licensed Movado retailer? Given that Movado's typically cost around $600 and up, the only way that $150 pricetag would be possible is if he's selling you the watch at cost (i.e. what he paid for it). Otherwise, it's fake.

For the poster who (somehow) hasn't heard of Movado, here's a few nicer examples of their watches. Movado's been around for ages, and they are renowned for their simple yet very elegant designs a far cry from the garishly and overly ostentatious offerings from Jacob & Co. IMO, Movado makes some of the most beautiful watches on the face of the earth; they are a true work of art. Here's a couple of examples of their work:

You're kidding, right?

I'm sure those images have been cleaned up in Photoshop, but they aren't really much of an exaggeration of what the real watches look like. The colour and tone is more even on the metal and there's less reflection, that's about it. I've seen Movado's up close before, they do look that good. As for them being "plain", their design is simple, but that is intentional, and the materials and construction are first class. Movado doesn't make cheap metal watches: theirs are made of silver, titanium, gold and/or platinum. That's not counting all the inner workings. You could say that Tissot and Tag Heuer make plain looking watches that aren't worth a lot, too, but everyone automatically identifies Swiss-made watches as being expensive and precisely designed. The same is true of Movado. You're not paying for some average timepiece covered in diamonds you're paying for a through-and-through engineering and design masterpiece. Movado screems class, and it certainly signifies wealth. But it's a refined sort of wealth, and not the crude, blinding kind that is characteristic of a Jacob watch. Movado doesn't beat you over the head with blinding ice and over-the-top ornamentation.

Here is a classy movado. The top pic is the original and the bottom two are after diamonds have been added to the bezel which changes the whole appearance which i think looks fu*kin nice. you can get this watch for $500 but after the diamonds, it goes for about $1,000. that's just for 1 CT diamonds added to the bezel.

but to homie who asked how to spot fake movado's, i don't think anyone here is ballin like that to know the differences between a fake and a real. ask your girls pops if you can drop a deposit and take that sh*t to a jeweler and get it looked at. look at it, if it seems real fu*k it, buy it. can't beat $150 and if it is fake, fu*k it. you live and you learn.

I got me a real nice Tissot for bout $700,they REAL shiny,an it kinda looks "rolexish" in design,an i seen a fake "TissoT" lol,but you can just tell from the weight and feel,get a magnifying glass,close inspection,look for serial numbers too,cause most swiss watches come wit all that sh*t hooked up.

i got an eliro joint, and like dude said they are real shiny....i get compliments all the time....i paid close to a G for it....was gonna get some shine dropped on the bezel, because it does make it look real nice....but i dont get down like that no more


as for fakes....you can tell from the weight, the real one are heavy......fake are light, the ones i seen anyway....make sure it has NO second hand.....ahh and if its easy to change the battery, its fake.....real ones you gotta send to professionals to change....they tough

yo i sell replicas so i know how to tell if its fake. first of all, all real movado come with certificates of authenticity. this certificate includes a model number and production date. if it does not have one you should request it from the jeweler. some jewelers like to keep them for their own records but u can request the original. the circle inside at the 12 o'clock position should be formed like a bowl. meaning it should curve in towards the watch and not out towards you. all movados are swiss made and it should say it on the face at the bottom. the words "swiss made" are in smaller print on the outside of the word MOVADO. for example " swiss MOVADO made". therer should also be inscriptions on the band. the inscriptions on the band should mathc the numbers on the certificate of authenticity. there is something i am missing but i cant remember what. hope this helps you.
