As with luxury bags, luxury watch brands such as Movado are copied and sold illegally. Movado watches are popular among both men and women, but sellers of replica watches hurt the brand by providing the buyer with poor craftsmanship. Dealers know what genuine Movado watches look like, and they are familiar with the watch model names and numbering system. While you can take your watch to a dealer to closely inspect its authenticity, you, too, can learn how to tell if your Movado watch is fake by noting a few details.
Check the material the watch is made of. Replica watches are made of aluminum, and they don't have the same heavy weight of an authentic Movado. Movado watches should feel like quality, solid pieces. True Movado watches are made of stainless steel.Observe the movement of the watch. The movement of the second hand should not be erratic or shaky. It should look smooth as it travels across the face of the watch.
Look closely for scratches on the glass face. Movado watches are scratch resistant, so any imperfection on the face is a telling sign that it's fake. Hold the face to the light and observe if it gleams like a genuine watch. If it's dull or cloudy, it's not authentic. Also, look for the inscription "Swiss Movado Made" to make sure it's authentic.
Feel the links and the clasp on the watch. Clasps should feel solid, and the links should be joined together by screws. Gently pull on the clasps and check for any loose pins. If the clasps feel fragile, it's probably fake.

I couldn't run down anything on the serial number on the net. We need the model number to be able to figure this out.
What you can do is to take the watch into a reputable Watch Repair service- they have books that should show your watch model, and value, or they can give you a ballpark figure. Of course, the watch is only worth what someone is willing to pay or value it at, but the value is estimated by the book "worth", which is determined by age, rarity, and condition..
Also, gold and silver exchange shops usually have the books too, so you could drop by one of those and see what they can look up.
If you answer with the model number, I'll try to research it further.
Thanks for using Fixya, and hope this helps.

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
