This sort of information is only likely to be available from an authorised dealer.
If you go to the Boluva web site, you will be able to use their dealer locator to find the one nearest you.

A watch with no movement in it is probably a salesman's sample or display model. These are often distributed to stores as part of a larger display. In addition to missing a movement, you should also check to see whether the hands have been glued in place. This is also often done because, without a movement, the hands would just flop around instead of staying in an attractive position.
Watch movements come in a variety of standard sizes and shapes. However, a standard ladies watch movement (made by many manufacturers) would probably fit your watch case. This size movement is today used in much larger watches, too; the movement is simply anchored by an appropriate spacer.
A jeweler advertising watch repair should be able to offer you a price on this job. If the hands have been glued to the dial, it may not be worth "upgrading" the watch because of the additional expense and potential damage to the watch face from getting the hands freed up.
If you're ambitious and want to try it yourself, movements can be found online at a variety of watch supply houses like Otto Frei. You can also buy a cheap new or used watch at a flea market or thrift store and use the movement from that. You might be able to re-purpose the spacer in that watch, too, by trimming it to fit your watch case. The major stumbling point here is that watch stems--i.e., the stem on which the setting crown is located--are usually custom-cut in length to match a specific case, and the one you select may be too long or too short for your case. A watch repair place should be able to replace the stem and crown for you, if you need that service. Trimming an overly-long stem is a very simple and cheap procedure; replacing the stem requires a new stem, which will add to the cost of the repair.

Hello there, the serial number on a Movado watch is usually unique to
each watch and therefore a watch cannot be identified by that. Here is a
picture of all the gold ladies Movado watches which are presently
available. I have numbered them 1 - 8 accordingly.
1 and 2 are both tagged the Amorosa and are valued at $895 and $1395 respectively.
3 and 4 are both tagged the Concerto and are valued at $2495 and $1495 respectively.
5 and 6 are both tagged the Bellamoda and are valued at $1495 and $1095 respectively.
7 is the Harmony and is valued at $895
8 is the Rondiro and is valued at $1495
If your watch is not on the list above then you might want to send it to the nearest Movado authorised dealer to confirm if it is original or a knock off.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa
