MOVAS or Movements of Asia is a Singapore based watch brand founded by Sean Wai. Sean trained as an architect started out Movas a few years ago having moderate success with his earlier pieces. His latest watch, the Bronze Diver IV has all the elements of a potential winner. While not intended for the mainstream, it would interest those looking for large imposing divers wristwatch made with bronze. 

While I have long stopped wearing large watches, seeing the prototype steel version of this watch and later its first bronze case, I was ready to wear it as my weekend or casual watch. This watch has been through a year of refinement of its design which caused its delay in its launch. But now that it has been finally finished, the watch is worth the wait with a thinner bezel than its prototype and matching tone in the date plates to the dial. The green dial compliments the bronze tone of the case and the olive green leather combination makes for a genuinely interesting and handsome watch. 

Here is how it looks on the wrist with jeans. 

The watch comes with a nicely design and weighted buckle made of bronze with Movas's own logo. Note the thick olive green leather strap. 

The watch features a exhibition back with a Seagull movement with a bronze rotor. An unusual and unique feature not seen before in other watches. 

The overall quality, details, casework belies the retail price of S$1800. 

Sean himself wears the original prototype model of the bronze diver. 
Movas also will be delivering the new T2 tourbillon shown below. The brand does not lack in imagination nor ambition. For those who are looking for daring design with lots of design details there are all too few in the market at this price segment.
