Movado launched the Movado Edge collection, developed in collaboration with world-renowned industrial designer Yves Behar and his design firm fuseproject, in 2015. Uniting the talents of two of the most important industrial designers of the last 70 years, Nathan George Horwitt and Yves Béhar, Movado brought a dynamic new level of design innovation and sophistication to the legendary Museum Dial.
“We do not know time as a number sequence, but by the position of the sun as the earth rotates,” said Horwitt. In 1947, he conceived the iconic Museum Watch – its dial defined by a single gold dot at 12 symbolizing the sun at high noon, with the simple moving hands suggesting the earth’s rotation. Regarded today as an icon of mid-twentieth century Modernism, the Museum Dial remains one of the most recognized and acclaimed watch dial designs of all time.
Movado Edge reinterprets the clean, minimalistic aesthetic of the legendary Museum Dial with stunning new shape and texture. The signature dot rises from the dial’s deeply concave, sandblasted surface. Sculpted linear peaks around the dial’s edge suggest the sun’s rays, while subtly marking the minutes.
The Edge launch collection included men’s, women’s and chronograph models on stainless steel link bracelets with push-button deployment clasps, and black leather or silicone straps with polished stainless steel buckles. Many styles featured an exciting touch of unexpected color on the dial.
Now for 2017, Movado adds four new men’s 2-hand models to the transformative Edge collection. Each features a round 40 mm case, 8.50 mm deep, crafted in solid stainless steel, or coffee-colored or black ion-plated steel. Topped by a flat sapphire crystal, the concave sandblasted aluminum dials with signature ray-textured edge are detailed by a raised polished tonal dot at 12 o’clock, a matte-finish hour hand and glossy minute hand.
Futuristic in look and feel, these newest additions to the transformative Edge collection reflect Movado’s unique vision – a 21st century collaboration of fine Swiss watchmaking and design-focused imagination. Water resistant to 3 ATM / 30 meters.
