MOVADO I "Don't let numbers define you." Movado watches are historically unique in that the iconic gold dot watch dial design is the first and only timepiece ever to be selected for a permanent place in New York's Museum of Modern Art. The Bauhaus design, drawing on the movement's ethos of simplicity, function and tastefulness, was created in 1947 by the artist Nathan George Horwitt, taking inspiration from the sun at high noon. The watch hands rotate around the gold dot much as the Earth rotates around the sun and the simple yet elegant design has remained a feature of Movado watches ever since.
“Simplicity, tastefulness, function” was their dictum. Perhaps best known for its Museum watch, which is an icon of modernism, Movado offers a cultural air that no other timepiece can claim. In simplicity lies beauty with the single dot sitting at 12 o'clock, and this revered Swiss-based brand infuses its other unique dial designs with elegance scaled to any occasion. The purity of the Movado watch design makes it immortal, adding a simplistically chic touch to a discerning look.
