Movado Museum Classic, Edition 2017

One of the world’s premier watchmakers and renowned for its modern design aesthetic, Movado is the 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.
For 2017, Movado presents three sophisticated additions to its signature Museum® Classic watch collection. Crafted in solid stainless steel or yellow gold PVD-finished steel, the two new men’s watches feature round polished 40 mm cases, 7.40 mm deep. The ladies model is elegantly understated fashioned in polished yellow gold PVD-finished steel with a 28 mm case, 6.05 mm deep.
Cool and clean, the men’s stainless steel version has a simple blue lacquer Museum dial detailed with elegant silver-toned dauphine hour and minute hands, Movado’s signature concave dot at 12 o’clock and silver-toned metallic printing.

Simply sophisticated, the yellow gold PVD-finished models feature iconic black dials with yellow gold-toned accents and lettering. All three new watches are presented on soft black textured calfskin straps finished with a matching stainless steel or yellow gold PVD-finished tongue buckle. Water-resistant to 3 ATM / 30 meters.
