This watch is part of a limited and numbered edition of 250 examples, replica of the Movado military watches from the beginning of this century. This model was specially developed in 1913 for officers and soldiers of the Swiss Army and was used during world war 1. It comes with its own unique packaging: a genuine, so-called " Mannsputzzeug" (maintenance kit for personal equipment) from old Swiss army stock. This maintenance kit consists of a coarse cloth holder containing various items which the Swiss soldier needed to look after his uniform; a special set consisting of cotton reel with needle, various army buttons, which were for the leather belt, shoe grease, brushes for clothes and shoes, etc. One brush has been removed and in its place the maintenance kit now contains a small wooden case which holds the watch. The whole pack is supplied in a leather card case. This Military Watch represents an important piece of Movado history and a very unique addition to any watch collection.
