Time never stands still is a very popular adage, perhaps referring to the constant motion of the world we live in. In regards to wristwatches one has to wonder if the phrase was designed to represent timepieces with sweeping second hands.
Interestingly there are two types of sweeping second hand movements on today’s wristwatches: automatic and quartz. Automatic watches have a smooth second hand operation that runs continuously in a fluid sweeping movement. Quartz timepieces have a second hand operation with a pulsating repeated starting and stopping action.
Of course, there are also many timepieces with no second-hand movements at all. The Movado Museum watch was one of the very first timepieces to not feature a sweeping second-hand when it was introduced in 1947. What’s more it was also one of the very timepieces to not feature any hour indicators on the dial, albeit for the singular concave dot at the 12 o’clock.
In addition to making a statement regarding up-to-the second time, the Movado Museum timepiece is perhaps one of the first true fashion watches. The watch’s popularity can easily be attributed to its minimalist good looks and cutting-edge design, as well as its premium craftsmanship.
Sixty-eight years later, a majority of the watches in Movado’s popular collections today feature updated aspects of the iconic Museum dial, sans sweeping second hands and hour indicators.
