Movado Men's 605850 Fiero Tungsten Carbide Watch
Stylishly minimalist, this Movado Fiero men's watch is a perfect day-in/day-out timepiece, easily moving from professional to casual couture and back again. The watch case is made of tungsten carbide one of the hardest, most scratch-resistant materials currently used in jewelry--which has a gunmetal coloring--and the bracelet band mixes tungsten carbide and black rubber links. Its tall, rectangular case with gently barrel-shaped, Tonneau-style sides measures 33mm (1.3 inches). The deep black dial face includes a single polished cabochon gemstone at 12 o'clock and two silver sword-shaped hands. Powered by a precise Swiss quartz movement, it also features a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and water resistance to 30 meters (99 feet)--enabling it to withstand splashes and accidental dunks into the water, but not suitable for swimming.
About Movado Since its founding in 1881 by 19-year-old entrepreneur Achille Ditisheim in the village of La Chaux-de-faunds, Switzerland, Movado has lived up to the meaning of its name--translated as "always in motion" in the international language of Esperanto. It's created some of the world's most famous timepieces, including the 1912 Polyplan (which was constructed on three planes to fit a case curved to follow the wrist), the Kingmatic series of rotor-driven automatic watches, and the Museum Watch--created by American designer Nathan George Horwitt in 1947.
Defined by a single dot at 12 o'clock representing the sun at high noon, The Museum Watch's uncluttered dial is regarded as an icon of Modernism. In 1960, it was the first watch dial ever selected to be part of New York's Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection. Movado later teamed up with designers and artists such as Andy Warhol to create one-of-a-kind limited edition watches, which reside in museums, galleries, and collections today.

Minimalist MasterpieceJan 26, 2012
By Watch Hunter
I've owned the Movado Fiero for three years now and even though my watch collection has grown since this purchase with some more costly models I still admire the design and elegance of this watch. As a Casino Manager I'm often in my Tux and this watch really adds that air of sophistication. Even one of my High Rollers remarked how stunning it looks and took off his $265,000 Richard Mille to try it on. I offered him a straight swap but he was having a bad night at the gaming tables so declined my offer. I love this watch and I love the fact that even other watch collectors can't resist a closer look.

Not your Daddy's MovadoSep 04, 2007
Metal sections are Tungsten Carbide(scratchless) and Black ones are some sort of metal hybrid. Best part is the black links DO NOT suffer from fingerprinting or the normal "oil" smudging you get with black metals. Understated yet extremely elegant and I now longer feel like my watch is going to catch a thief's eye from across the street like i do with my Valor....
I LOVE THIS THING!!!!!
(Note: Did not purchase it online)

Movado Fiero two-tone watchNov 11, 2008
By M. Bowen
This for me is a beautiful watch. The body and bracelet is made from Tungsten Carbide - one of the hardest substances known and used for the cutting faces of machine tools. So its hard! It wont scratch in a hurry -though be warned it may scratch other things. The TC is a bit darker than stainless steel - think polished gun metal - so its very distinctive. The black interior links in the bracelet are covered in a very dark hard matt rubber. The face is classic Movado - plain and elegant. This is a watch that looks as good with a suit as it does with jeans. I bought this watch from the UK (Movado is virtually unknown in UK) and even with import duty and VAT etc it was almost half price compared to the sole UK dealer (Harrods!) However you do NOT get a manufacturers warranty. Amazon provide quite a limited warranty that covers the movement only. This is a big issue and something Amazon should be more explicit about on the site. For me I am still delighted as my watch is fine and half price. If I had a problem and Amazon were still selling at this price (and ex rate was stable!) I could buy a replacement watch and almost still be no worse off than a UK purchase...but thats for me and remember Movado is rare in UK. For others you need to weigh up the saving v the warranty (oh and remember you will have to pay a jeweller to adjust the bracelet upon receipt). Love my watch though and excellent service direct from Amazon.com

One of my favorite watches ever owned of all time, but....Apr 18, 2012
By M. Ramos
I have to say, I have really enjoyed owning this watch and not only is it built extremely well, but it's a head turner if I've ever seen one. Often when I am in a client meeting or out somewhere wearing it, I'll catch people just staring at it (you'd think they were boobs, not a watch, lol). The black leather strip makes it look unique to other watches on the market and the bracelet and face are gorgeous.
So... why only 4 stars you ask? Tungsten Carbide is an amazing material, however highly allergenic for some people who have sensitive skin. I learned $3,000 later that I am one of those people and will now have to sell a watch that I love so much or walk around with a permanent rash on my wrist that looks disgusting. I wish Movado would realize that this material is nice, yet causes serious skin problems for some (not all, some), and would offer this model/style of watch in a stainless steel or a brushed steel, etc
So.... if you have the skin to handle it, I say go for it and you will absolutely love owning this watch, however others that may break out wearing certain types of jewelry such as silver or nickel, etc should be very careful and not make the same $3,000 mistake I did.

best looking watch aroundApr 14, 2010
By K. Marashi
I have owned this watch for about a year and a half now and I still can't find any other watches on the market that would match this. While being very classy and simple, your wrist will never go unnoticed. Almost every time I wear this watch I get asked by someone who makes it and where I bought it from.
