The Kingmatic Video was another funky none-round design from the end of the 60s during the "collaboration" of Movado and Zenith.It was advertised as the Mr. Cool watch, which undoubtably it is.
The old school TV case counterbalanced by boxy hourmarkers and a Defy-style date aperature at 4:30.There were several combinations of this piece during it's rather short production run and I hope to cover everything.Dial colors: Blue, Avocado Green, champagne (gold plated case), brushed silver
Date configuration: Date only, Date and Day
Band option: Three link bracelet, Mesh bracelet, leather strap
They used several movements in this case starting with the most exclusive one Movado Caliber 405 High Beat 36.000 VPH feature Day and Date.
The most common one was probably Caliber 408 featuring 36.000 VPH and Date only. These two models were all stamped "HS 360" on the dial below the applied Movado logo.
The first generation of this watch features what I believe to be Caliber 388 with and 21.000 VPH. This watch was used throughout the Kingmatic line in the mid to late 60s, so I am quite sure it was used in the Video as well.
What's curious is that the watch below is advertised with caliber 408, but is missing the "HS 360" designation on the dial. So maybe there were transitional models as well. Or they only used Caliber 408 which could also very well be the case since the caliber was released in 1968 and replaced caliber 388.
This is a rather rare piece and unfortunately I don't own it, so I can't give you any picture. But google is your friend in this case. Also I am sure there is a lot more to say about this piece but I just recently discovered it and I will add more information as I gather them. So please consider this more of a work in progress.
What I do know for sure though is that the Video had some of the coolest advertisements ever.
