Movado: Swiss heritage, since 1881

Movado: Swiss heritage, since 1881

One of the world’s premier watchmakers, Movado is renowned for its iconic Museum® dial and
modern design aesthetic. Since its founding in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 1881, Movado
has earned more than 100 patents and 200 international awards for artistry and innovation in
watch design and technology, and Movado timepieces have won world renown for their unique
beauty and timeless design.

Movado is hallmark of some of the most famous timepieces ever created, most notably, the
Movado Museum® Watch. Designed in 1947 by Bauhaus-influenced artist Nathan George
Horwitt, the watch dial defined by a solitary dot at 12, symbolizing the sun at high noon, has
been acclaimed for purity of design unrivaled in the history of time-keeping. When Horwitt’s dial
was selected for the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in
1960, it became the first watch dial ever awarded this distinction. Known today as the Movado
Museum Watch, this legendary dial is regarded as an icon of Modernism. A trademarked and
award-winning design, the celebrated single dot dial now distinguishes a wide range of Movado
timepieces.
