MovadoIn 1881, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, Achilles Dilesheim, an entrepreneur at 19, hired six watchmakers and opened a workshop. He named his company Movado, meaning “always in motion”. Since then Movado has become known for design innovation in time technology. Today Movado boasts 101 patents, over 200 international awards and watches featured in the permanent collections of 20 museums worldwide.
The range boasts some of the most famous timepieces in the world such as the Museum Watch created in 1947, which has a numberless dial, save for a single dot at 12’clock symbolising the sun at high noon. This classic Movado Museum timepiece, sometimes regarded as the purest way to conceptualise time, has developed into a full range of styles. The modern design philosophy leans towards the clean and functional, often in steel, reminiscent of the Bauhaus design movement of the 1920’s.
Movado watches are available from a selected choice of prime watch and jewellery stores.
