As you might’ve already guessed, you’re looking at an Ermeto, but not just any old example, as the line of dial text reading “8 DAYS” would indicate. Coming in at a hefty six inches by three inches when opened, this is the largest of all Ermetos, with the longest power reserve. Many collectors refer to this travel timepiece variant as the Pullman, which Movado introduced back in 1936. Given the greater likelihood for desk or bedside use, all of these oversized examples came equipped with an alarm complication that could be set to the half, quarter, or full hour. In my opinion, the way in which the alarm track was integrated with the hour track is some of the manufacture’s finest dial design work, which can only be found on these Ermetos.
