Movado is a Swiss watch brand founded in 1881 when 19 year old entrepreneur Achilles Ditesheim hired six watchmakers and opened a small workshop in the village of La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland. In 1905, Ditesheim renamed the company Movado, which means 'always in motion'.
The brand's philosophies include design excellence, technological innovation and a dedication to Swiss craftsmanship. Movado has achieved a legacy of design innovation, earning hundreds of patents and awards for artistry and innovation in watch design and time technology.
Movados' greatest creation is the Museum watch. With a blank black dial and a single dot at twelve o’clock symbolizing the sun at high noon, the museum dial was a revolutionary minimalistic design during its launch.
It was designed by Bauhaus-influenced artist Nathan George Horwitt in 1947. It was added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1960 becoming the first watch dial ever awarded this distinction. This is how it got its name.
The Museum Watch dial has stood the test of time and is Movado's signature dial design. It is considered an icon of modern design today and is what most people think of when they think of Movado watches.
