THIS OFFER IS FOR ONE OF THE RAREST AND COOLEST DIVE WATCHES EVER CREATED; THE EARLY 1968/70 ESPERANTO IN MINTY CONDITION.

THE ESPERANTO BRAND WAS OWNED AND CREATED BY CUPILLARD-VUEZ ET RIEME  MORTEAU, FRANCE FROM THE MID 1950's to MID 1970'S.

THE USE OF THE NAME "ESPERANTO" WAS BORROWED FROM THE ESPERANTO LANGUAGE CREATED IN THE LATE 1870'S AND EARLY 1880'S BY DR. LUDWIG LAZARUS ZAMENHOF , AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST OF MIXED CULTURAL HERITAGE FROM BIALYSTOK.

A MAJOR DRIVING FORCE IN THE SELECTION OF "ESPERANTO" AS THEIR BRAND WAS THE FACT THAT THE FOUNDERS OF THE MOVADO WATCH COMPANY HAD USED "ESPERANTO" TO CREATE THE VERY NAME MOVADO:

MOVADO MEANS "ALWAYS IN MOTION" IN ESPERANTO.

Esperanto

Esperanto was created in the late 1870s and early 1880s by Dr. Ludwig Lazarus Zamenhof. He created this language to foster harmony between people from different countries.  Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language. Its name translates as "one who hopes".Zamenhof's goal was to create an easy-to-learn, politically neutral language that would transcend nationality and foster peace and international understanding between people with different languages.

Esperanto speakers range from 100,000 to 2,000,000 active or fluent speakers worldwide, including  a thousand native speakers who learned Esperanto from birth. Lernu, the online learning platform of Esperanto,  teaches it in 41 languages. In July of 2013, it WAS ESTABLISHED THAT  over 150,000 users were registered and between 150,000 and 200,000 additional individuals are monthly visitors.

Esperanto has a notable presence in over a hundred countries in highest in Europe, East Asia, and South America. The first World Congress of Esperanto was organized in France in 1905. The French Academy of Sciences in 1921 and UNESCO in 1954 recognized Esperanto. In 2007 Esperanto was the 32nd language that adhered to the "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment (CEFR)".  Esperanto is currently the language of instruction of the International Academy of Sciences in San Marino. With 186,000 articles, Esperanto has the 32nd-largest Wikipedia as measured by the number of articles, and the largest Wikipedia in a constructed language. On February 22, 2012, Google Translate added Esperanto as its 64th language.

During the 1930's Esperanto attracted the suspicion Nazi Germany, Francoist Spain and the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin. In Germany, those advocating or assisting Esperanto were further persecuted because Zamenhof was Jewish. In his work, Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler specifically mentioned Esperanto as an example of a language that could be used by an International Jewish Conspiracy once they achieved world domination.

Esperantists were killed during the Holocaust, with Zamenhof's family in particular singled out for murder. The efforts of some Esperantists to expel Jewish colleagues and align themselves with the Reich were  futile and Esperanto was forbidden in 1936.

Esperantists was taught in German concentration camps by informing the guards they were teaching Italian, the language of one of Germany's Axis allies.

Imperial Japan was no better, the left-wing Japanese Esperanto movement was persecuted, but its leaders were careful enough not to give the impression to the government that the Esperantists were revolutionaries, which proved a successful strategy.

In the early years of the Soviet Union, Esperanto was given a measure of government support, and the Soviet Esperanto Association was an officially recognized organization. However, in 1937, Stalin reversed this policy and denounced Esperanto as "the language of spies" and had Esperantists exiled or executed. The use of Esperanto was effectively banned until 1956.
