Detailed Review:

I am not a huge fan of Movado watches, but they are a classic and well respected brand that others like.  Customer service here is excellent, with Enrico being so memorable I still remember his name after 3 months or so.  Selection covers just about every current watch that Movado sells from the classic Museum to contemporary quartz chronographs.  Sad to say, I like some of the styles, but the sport watches tend to hang off of my wrist and they are not that competitive with quality vs. price as Seiko or Citizen.  They are Swiss made and have Swiss prices.  Prices are comparable to TAG Heuer on their mid tier watches.  The Sport’s Junior line (hate the name) is reasonable priced and sized, less than $500, but like I said, does not compare to other makers.  The store is very clean and well lit and it is an enjoyable experience shopping there.  Four out of Five stars.
