Movado Juro Quartz Swiss Luxury Watches Review

Movado Juro

Movado Juro displays an original and sophisticated design that establishes a decorative link between the bezel and a central line within the bracelet. This is a necessary feature for the otherwise straight and strict timepieces of this collection.

Juro is a powerful design -- but it needs a relaxed artistic touch in order to smooth out the muscular look, to tame it and polish it somewhat. That's exactly what this decorative link does: it relieves the tension created by the perfect circle of the wide bezel. In a way, it does that similarly to how a canal absorbs excess water from an overflowing river; it channels some of the liquid to itself, and soothes the entire affected area.

Diamonds and Gold

Juro bracelets consist of complex links in a cross shape, which mellow the hard impression of a black dial surrounded by nearly white stainless steel. This is where nonferrous metals, two-tone designs and diamonds really benefit the watches.

These embellishments pull more attention towards themselves, pulling it away from the harshness – in this case, the luxury is almost a necessity. Surprisingly enough, a Juro in gold looks more “at peace” with the complex bracelet-bezel composition, bringing out its advantages. The ladies diamond variation brings out the femininity of this Movado.

Government Officials

Juro is a tough, strong watch that in my view will suit, as the name of the collection implies, government officials. The brand doesn't compromise its famous elegant style for the Juro – but it subordinates it to the principal goal of making a watch that impresses, and inspires respect in observers.

Ultimately, Movado Juro hinges on a combination of intensity and austere style, in a way embodying the “good cop and bad cop” interrogation technique; it can be soft on the one hand, but unbending and strong-willed on the other. Wearing such a watch can imply that you possess both traits.
