Movado’s history began in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 1881 under the name LAI Ditescheim & Freres SA, founded by Léopold Achille Isidore Ditesheim. The name Movado, which means “Always in motion” in Esperanto, was adopted in 1905. Movado’s watches are truly always in motion.
Movado is most famous for its Museum watch, designed in 1947 by American designer Nathan George Horwitt. The original watch is very striking, with a solid black dial and no number hands save for one gold dot at 12 which represents the sun at high noon. Horwitt was inspired by the Bauhaus movement from the early 1900’s in Germany, that focused on artistic vision within mass production and combining fine art with everyday function.
The current CEO of Movado, Efraim Grinberg’s cunning vision keeps the brand ever expanding and creating new designs. Movado is known for creating luxury watches in addition to everyday affordable styles.
