Movado Chronograph 19038 Cronacvatic FB 95M (1950's)

*First series; very rare and extraordinary timepiece*

Pre owned Movado Chronograph Cronacvatic Ref.19038 (brand's first chronograph series) with a 35mm François Borgel (FB) steel case, faceted lugs that maintain their sharped-edge, stepped steel bezel and silver dial with a beautiful darkened patina and Arabic numerals (Arabic Dial) with traces of luminescent material, outer ring with telemetric scale, inner ring with minute markers, central snail tachymetric scale, 3 sub-dials: for minutes at 3 o'clock and hours at 6 with red baton hands, small seconds at 9 with silvered hand, central red hand for chronograph feature, hour and minute hands with traces of luminescent material. Screw-down crown unlabeled and Pump style pushers with inverted system where the top pusher (lacquered in red) resets to zero and the bottom the start-stop chronograph feature. Domed acrylic crystal and steel decagonal case back with the engraving "Donald Hamilton"**. This model is powered by the iconic 95M calibre (considered as the best chronograph manufactures at the time). Includes a vintage style blue suede strap with steel buckle.

A very rare vintage watch. In working condition and good state of conservation for its antiquity. With visible signs of professional use (presumably in military aviation) and in its original un-polished condition. This rare timepiece presents special characteristics that make it a unique specimen for collectors. Watch only (without original box and papers).


What makes this watch so special?
  • The most visible detail is the red lacquering on the reset pusher that provides an enhanced visibility of this feature and a military retro look.
  • The minute marker slightly differs from other dials from this same reference. It's delineated by two rings that define the marker from the exterior tele metric scale and dial and also features numbers in red.
  • The sub-dials feature a concentric line pattern providing a beautiful contrast with the red batton hands.
  • **The case back is engraved with the name "Donald Hamilton". According public registers available on the internet, this name coincides with Lieutenant Donald Hamilton Smith, pilot with the Royal Australian Air Force that served for the UK armed air force in WWII until 1944. On 1945 he was discharged from service with honours (Ref. https://allspitfirepilots.org/pilots/1125).
