Movado’s Museum watch has become a model of contemporary watchmaking with its unique appearance. Behind its legendary dial, there is a remarkable history. Nathan George Horwitt, an American artist inspired by the Bauhaus movement, designed this dial in 1946. He believes that ‘our understanding of time does not come from a sequence of numbers, but is dominated by the position of the sun when the earth rotates.’ He applied this theory to design, deliberately removing the numbers on the dial to indicate time. , Just add a golden dot at noon.
This unprecedented initiative made the prototype of Howitt’s prototype watch selected as a permanent collection in 1959 by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. This watch was later adopted and interpreted by the Swiss Movado Watch Factory, and has become one of its brand’s best-selling products.
This year’s new model, with golden hands, highlights the vastness and depth of the black dial, and the concave golden dots symbolize the sun shining at noon. There is no doubt that this is a timepiece with a timeless heritage.
