Since its founding in Switzerland in 1881, Movado has been known for artistry and innovation. The brainchild of a 19-year old entrepreneur Achille Ditesheim, Movado means "always in motion". Through the decades, Movado has remained on the cutting edge of technology and design, obtaining more than 100 patents and hundreds of international awards. One of the most recognizable Movado designs is the Movado Museum Watch with its distinctive dial. Designed by artist Nathan George Horwitt in 1947, the Movado Museum Watch dial showcases a single dot at twelve representing the sun at high noon. This legendary design is considered to be an icon of Modernism and was the first watch to ever be selected for the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection in New York. Today, Movado watches are featured in prominent museums all over the world. Always in motion, Movado continues to create exceptional watches of quality Swiss craftsmanship and design distinction.
