The GMT was the first watch offered by moVas. It was designed as an everyday watch for the working professional. Built in a surgical grade stainless steel case for robustness. It was also designed with a diamond shaped crown for ease of winding. The power reserve indicator takes the guess work out of when you’ll need to wind the watch and the 10atm rating allows flexibility of usage, whether it be for regular office wear or weekend frolicks at the beach. 100pc of this design was produced and each watch was numbered.
The watch had many firsts for the company. Early seeds for other models were definitely planted and harvested from this design as you will see numerous design elements continued in future models. The first was the overall design of the case, with the rounded rectangle as a prominent feature. Next was the use of the ‘O’ as the 12 o’clock marker. It was also early days of modifying movements. Originally the movement base had a date and week indicator. To simplify the design both of these were removed from the final design.
Overall simplicity of the watch boded well and is eventually sold out. 100 lucky individuals carry this watch around now and a GMT 2 is being worked on as we speak.
