Perhaps the most versatile of all watch colors, the plain black watch has found a brighter and more updated look with the MVMT watch manufacturer. Basic black has always been popular for its ability to go with anything. Paired with silver and gold for evening, or highlight in red for sporty selections, black watches make up a significant portion of the MVMT product line. As we’ve reviewed the best MVMT watches, the focus here will be those models that are predominately black in color.
Why Purchase from MVMT?
MVMT is unlike most large watch companies, With its goal to produce quality watches that are stylish, reasonably priced and durable, this company has broken many of the rules associated with manufacturing. Using crowdfunding for its initial startup capital, the company built a community of investors and customers who saw a reason to embrace an old invention in a new way. The company that began its operations in 2013 now has worldwide sales and has partnered with such retail giants as Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, and Amazon, to make their watches easily accessible to all shoppers.
What about the Watches?
Too often, watches are lumped together with filing cabinets and land line telephones – nice to have in an emergency but otherwise considered obsolete. And yet, watches have adapted over decades to become one of the most functional and efficient pieces of technology that has been created over the last five hundred years. A watch is largely hands-free operation and generally silent. It is highly accurate and there are no software updates, malware issues or need to allow it to know your private data or location. MVMT recognized the potential and took that old concept, made it out of quality materials, incorporated precision Quartz movements and styled it for updated trends for both men and women.

All watches are based on a standard design. However, what makes MVMT watches in a class unto themselves is the way these components are used.
MVMT watches are most often made of durable stainless steel which has been finished in gold, bronze, black or natural tones. Resistant to rust and normal wear, it provides a strong case for years of use.
With a wide variety of bands to choose from, there are generally three types of bands offered. The first is a metal link band which may or may not be interchangeable. The second is a woven metal band which has a similar look as a leather band but has the strength of metal. The last is genuine leather which can be made in a variety of colors and styles. Leather and woven metal bands are typically interchangeable.
MVMT groups its watch styles into collections with similar features. From the simple Classic to the technologically advanced ARC Automatic, Chrono, and Voyager, MVMT has a style of watch to meet the needs of any user
Many of the watches offered by MVMT are water resistant. The hardened mineral crystal and stainless steel case along with superb workmanship make these timepieces tolerant of high humidity, spilled drinks or being out in bad weather. While it does not mean these can be used for diving or working in water, they are able to withstand everyday mishaps.

A part of the Classic collection, this black on black model has a large 45mm watch face with a black dial, black brushed stainless housing and black leather strap. In contrast to that monochromatic theme is the 3 handbattery powered Miyota Quartz mechanism with bright red second hand. The hour and minute hands as well as the markers and date are displayed in soft grey/white. The face thickness is 9mm (approximately ⅜ inch) and the wide 24mm genuine leather band is interchangeable. The company offers a black metal link or contrasting camel colored leather band as an additional accessory. The hardened mineral crystal is water resistant rated at 3 ATM. The style looks great for casual wear or doing double duty for a night on the town.
This model may be very simple in appearance but its understated elegance conceals an automatic movement that is a centuries-old skill in watchmaking. It has up to three times the number of working parts that battery operated watches can have but is designed in a way that harnesses the energy of the wearer’s natural movements to power it. The watch never stops running as long as it is worn. Part of the ARC Automatic collection, it is one of MVMT’s most sophisticated models to date. The model has a brushed silver stainless housing, a black dial and black leather band. The hour, minute and second hands as well as the markers are in the same brushed silver as the case.

Two Italian tanned natural leather bands are offered as accessories.
This interesting pairing of grey and black features is part of the Blacktop series. Its 5 hand battery powered Miyota Quartz movement has gunmetal hands for the hour, minute and second. Two subdials flank each side of the traditional display. One acts as a 60 minute timer. The other clocks running seconds. The band and case are matte finished black stainless steel.
