Movado Chiclet Watch

Sterling silver Movado chronometer 'chiclet' pocket and purse watch, with dedication dated 1928, features a gunmetal finish outer case, measuring 1-1/2" w x 1-1/4" h when closed, that opens to reveal a square matte silver dial with luminous painted Arabic numerals, silhouette hands, time-setting crown at top. The watch open measures 2-3/4" and is dedicated "To Rudy From Art Jones Nov-24-28" attributed to Rudy Vallee, who opened the Brooklyn Paramount Theatre with other rising stars on that date. See below.

"The majestic Paramount was an immediate success when it opened in late November 1928 with live entertainment and a screening of the part-talkie Manhattan Cocktail. Nancy Carroll, the film’s female lead, appeared live on stage alongside rising singing star Rudy Vallee and a young Ginger Rogers, while Jessie Crawford’s organ playing combined with beautiful chorus girls to create a spectacle of sight and sound that “thrilled and amazed” the 25,000 movie fans who attended the premiere, according to the Brooklyn Evening Journal." -- from the brooklynrail.org.
