Movado Watch

Movado, legendary Swiss watchmaker since 1881, was founded by Archilles Ditsheim.  Creating this iconic style took a visionary outlook and years of hard work.  Movado, which means “always in motion” is the foundation on which the Movado Empire was built.

Movado’s most famed design is that of the Museum watch.  The Museum watch was originally created in 1947.  Nathan George Horwitt’s modernistic style was the influence for this celebrated creation.  The Museum watch features a stark, blank dial, colored in midnight black, and adorned with a single “dot”.  The dot, placed at the 12 o’clock marking, signifies the bright mid-day sun, and has become a defining characteristic of Movado watches.

This creation by Horwitt was hailed revolutionary and the design was specially selected to become the first watch ever to be displayed at the Museum of Modern Art, later receiving its permanent place in the exhibits collections.
