Pace-setting modern wristwatches for both men and women have been at the fashion forefront since Movado introduced the Museum Watch in 1947. With streamlined Bauhaus inspired styling created by artist Nathan George Hewitt, the Movado Museum watch defined modern timepieces for many decades.
The original watch featured an ultra-slim and perfectly round case in polished yellow gold presented on a black lizard strap. The iconic dial featured only two slender gold-tone finished sword hands and a single round dot accent at the 12 o’clock hour on a black background. A sweeping second hand and hour marker indicators were absent on the Museum watch dial, adding to its thoroughly modernistic design and appeal.
The Museum Watch stands today as a paragon of modern time. The Museum of Modern Art in fact added the watch to its collection in 1960. Interestingly, the Museum watch is now considered a Classic Watch icon having been around for close to 70 years. Many of today’s modern timepieces have a futuristic tone and appeal, while others adhere to more streamlined and minimalist characteristics.
