Movado Calendograf Ref. 14776 steel vintage calendar wristwatch, circa 1945

A stainless steel triple calendar wristwatch with two-tone dial

This smart triple calendar wristwatch has a two-tone dial with broad, matt finished, chapter ring that carries the Arabic and disc hour indexes. The calendar is displayed with central apertures for days of the week and months and, to the edge of the dial, the date is displayed with blue numerals, indicated via a central red-tipped hand. There is some oxidation and a few small scratches to the dial surface. The case retains good definition to its angles and edges and has not been polished during servicing, there are therefore some scuffs and scratches to the case.

Introduced in 1938, the Calendograf with calibre 475 was one of Movado’s most significant vintage models and examples were exhibited at the 1940 World’s Fair in New York as well as at the Basel Watch Fairs throughout the 1940s. Production of calibre 475 ceased in 1954.

Andy Warhol’s name is famously linked with Movado. The artist owned several vintage Movado watches, including a Calendograf (later sold as part of the Warhol collection at Sotheby’s in 1988, following the artist’s death). In 1983, Gedalio Grinberg’s family bought the Movado watch company and Andy Warhol, who was a personal friend of Gedalio, was approached to design the first of Movado’s Artists’ watches. Warhol was working on the project when he died, his watch design, featuring 5 identical watch cases joined together to form a bracelet, each with a different photographic scene of New York, was released posthumously in a limited series of 250 pieces.
