1942 Spaulding & Co. Movado Vintage Mens Midsize Boys Non-Magnetic Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 4531

Today's offering showcases this 1942 Movado for Spaulding & Co. watch with a great look. A rare watch in the Spaulding-Gorham signed dial version, it has a striking bulls-eye dial with Breguet numerals.

If you're not familiar Spaulding & Co. was a prestigious jeweler in Chicago, at times referred to as the "Tiffany & Co. of the West." (An article on Spaulding & Co. can be found here.) Spaulding was bought by Gorham in 1920, and then merged with Black, Starr & Frost in 1929.

The cool case with its cadenas lugs is in pleasing condition and retains strong lines, and the dial

Measuring 28.5mm in diameter by 39mm long, it's suitable for someone with small wrists. Originally a full-featured dress watch, it has a water-resistant style case and inner anti-magnetic cover.

We recently sold the same model branded for Cartier and have included a photo below of that watch in the listing for comparison.

Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

A rare original watch branded for a prestigious jeweler.
