How to Find a Movado Model Number

By Vanessa Padgalskas

Movado is a Swiss watch company founded in 1881. Movado watches belong to the Movado Group, which also sells Coach, ESQ Swiss, Ebel, and Concord watches, to name a few. A majority of Movado watches are quartz, which means they are battery-operated, but some have an automatic movement, which means they self-wind with the natural movement of your wrist. Knowing the model number is necessary when ordering parts or doing maintenance.

Step 1

Turn the watch face down so you are looking at the back of the watch case.

Step 2

Locate the two sets of numbers on the back of the case. You will see "MOVADO Swiss Made" at the top and the numbers will be toward the bottom.

Step 3

The top number is the model number. On most new Movado watches, the model number will begin with 260 or 06.
