Movado Vizio Quartz Swiss Luxury Watches Review

Updated on January 13, 2015

Hi-Tech Watches

In the Vizio collection Movado explore the realm of rare and hi-tech compound materials. Men's watches include carbon fiber, hard metal and anthracite, which is a kind of a carbon-rich coal with luster qualities – an extremely hard substance.

Alongside the experimental materials, Movado try new dial designs, moving away from the classic, bare scheme towards more elaborate, usually sporty looks. As a result, many of the watches exhibit a more aggressive, confident and sexy look – more open and people oriented – naturally suitable for similar personalities.

Vizio Is Visionary

Vizio is an unapologetically modern collection. Movado shed some of the established classic elements and venture into contemporary spheres of design – perhaps not always getting it right, but always keeping things exciting and interesting.

Colored leather straps, diamonds and new, pin-based bracelets add a dimension of novelty to the design. Not everyone will love this new approach, but it's impossible not to admire the company for taking risks. The word “Vizio” implies “visionary” -- which is how some of the timepieces in this collection can be appropriately described.

No Speed Limit

Although most of the new designs are aimed at women, not all might suit the discerning lady. Men's Vizio is the real find here, featuring unconventional materials and sporting a quiet, “underdog” appearance.

The driver's model, though made of the conventional stainless steel and sapphire crystal, is almost shocking when compared to the expected Movado minimalism – this is a highly elaborate timepiece with a carved, angular bezel and some serious chutzpah.

You would think a man wearing such a watch is bound to break the speed limit. The Movado Vizio is not a luxury collection per se – it is too daring and edgy; buy for the colors, the sporty looks, the broad appeal – and, of course, for the quality of movement and execution.
