Why Movado is famous?
Movado is recognized for its wide collection of Museum watches which feature black clock faces along with a single gold dot at the twelve o’clock position. The original Museum Watch which was designed by the American designer Nathan George Horwitt in 1947 was the first wrist watch model to be exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art. Horwitt planned it to be redolent of a sun dial, with the dot representing the sun at high noon. This most familiar look of a Movado watch feature simple hour and minute hand including a solid background and a single pressed circle on the twelve o’clock mark.
In addition to its elegant design, Movado watches tend to be reputed for their light weight. Most Movado styles include the use of sapphire crystal which is highly scratch resistant and therefore used by most watch making companies. With its numerous watches displayed in museums around the world, Movado has made its mark of worldwide success. Its regular promotion and exposure in famous magazines and other publications fosters this success. At this time, Movado watches utilize quartz as well as automatic movements in their timepieces. The Movado Group, Inc. promotes other watch brands like Concord, Ebel, ESQ Swiss, Coach Watches, Hugo Boss Watches, Tommy Hilfiger, Juicy Couture, Lacoste Watches and RALCO. Famous Movado models
