Museum Classic by Movado

A true icon of contemporary watchmaking, Movado’s legendary Museum dial was designed in 1946 by American artist Nathan George Horwitt. He held that “we do not know time as a number sequence but by the position of the sun as the earth rotates.” Applying this theory, he eliminated the numerals and designed a dial defined by a single gold dot at 12 o’clock. In this supremely understated new version, the intense black dial is enhanced by the gold-toned hands and the famous concave dot symbolising the sun at high noon, once again confirming the timeless appeal of this design.
