While some would say that watches are going the way of the horse and buggy, there is nothing more professional looking than a gold watch on the wrist of a man. Even more impressive is choosing a traditional style watch that relies on hand movement for accuracy rather than a digital printout. MVMT has developed a variety of watches that deserve a second look. Appealing to the consumers for its quality as well as its style this review seeks to highlight the many reason why purchasing a MVMT watch is a wise choice.

Consider its Features
One might say a watch is a watch is a watch but MVMT has taken the time to incorporate quality features into each of its products. It is not just about the looks but also about the functionality of the product.
Depending on how the watch face is designed there may or may not be options to customize the band to your liking. Linked bands are typically made of metal and may not always be interchangeable. If they are too large for the write then removal of one or more links is necessary (typically through a jeweler). A broken linked band can mean an end to the watch. Mesh metal bands give the durability of metal with the flexibility of leather. Leather bands come in a variety of colors and widths. Watches with leather bands are interchangeable and generally more adjustable than metal style bands.
A typical watch battery will run about a year and can be replaced by visiting a jeweler. Battery life does depend on the type of battery used and how often the watch’s special features are used.
MVMT offers more than just a 3 hand display with hour, minute and second hand. Its collections include chronograph watches that can act as a stopwatch or timer, a Voyager watch that can keep dual time and a variety of sport watches.
