Product Description

This ultra-sleek Men's Museum dial watch is the essence of simplicity and style. It features a perfectly round black Museum dial with slender silver-tone hands and a single concave dot at the twelve o'clock position. This is the minimalist look made famous for Movado by American designer Nathan George Horwitt in 1947. Horwitt intended his design to be evocative of a sun dial, with the dot representing the sun at high noon. The black dial is housed in an ultra-thin stainless steel case measuring 31mm wide and framed by a steel bezel with slightly elongated lugs. It presents on a sleek black calfskin strap that tapers slightly toward the ends and fastens with a stainless steel buckle closure. This watch features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and precise Swiss quartz movement. Water-resistant to 30 meters, it can withstand splashes and brief immersion in water; however, it is not sufficiently resistant for swimming.

About Movado
Movado, one of the most celebrated watch brands in the world, traces its origins to the small village of La Chaux-de-faunds, Switzerland where, in 1881, a young watchmaker named Achille Ditesheim hired six assistants and opened a small workshop. He called his company Movado, a word which means, roughly, "always in motion." The company grew and prospered, evolving from a small pocketwatch manufacturer into a leading innovator and designer of precision wristwatches. Throughout its history, Movado has maintained its place at the pinnacle of innovation and excellence in design, craftsmanship and technology. Movado watches are crafted by highly-skilled watchmakers to meet the exacting standards of Swiss time technology. They are accurate to within seconds a year. All Movado watches are sealed and protected against water, moisture and dust, and individually tested to meet strict international standards of quality. A long-time dedicated supporter of the arts, Movado has, itself, been the recipient of over 200 international awards. Movado watches can now be found in the permanent collections of over 20 museums worldwide.

Museum Collection
The watch dial defined by a dot at 12. Design simplicity unrivaled in the history of time-keeping. Flat dot/stick hands, or concave dot/dauphine hands. Stainless steel or gold-plated case. Fine leather strap. Swiss quartz movement. Sapphire crystal. Water resistant to 3 atm.

The art of Movado is the art of design. Since its founding in 1881 by 19-year old entrepreneur Achille Ditesheim in the village of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, Movado has achieved a legacy of design innovation, earning more than 100 patents and 200 international awards for artistry and innovation in watch design and time technology.

Movado, meaning "always in motion" in the international language of Esperanto, is the hallmark of some of the most famous timepieces ever created: the 1912 Polyplan, its revolutionary, patented movement constructed on three planes to fit a case curved to follow the wrist…the WWI Soldier’s Watch with its elegant, protective grill…the 1927 Ermeto, a capsule-shaped pocket watch wound by the sliding motion of its case…the innovative 1950’s Kingmatic series of rotor-driven automatics…the Movado Artist’s Series by luminaries of the fine art world…and the Movado Museum® Watch with its legendary dial.

Defined by a single dot at 12 representing the sun at high noon, the Museum Watch dial is regarded as an icon of Modernism. It was designed by Bauhaus-influenced artist Nathan George Horwitt in 1947. When Horwitt’s dial was selected for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1960, it was the first watch dial ever awarded this distinction. The name "Museum Watch" derives from this recognition. Today, Movado watches are in prominent museums worldwide, and this legendary dial distinguishes an entire collection of singular timepieces.

The Movado Boutiques extend the Movado brand philosophy of design innovation beyond watches to a range of products for modern living. Exclusive offerings include the proprietary and patented 114-facet Movado Diamond™ jewelry collection, Movado’s own modern 18K gold, diamond, sterling silver and gemstone jewelry, signature pens and personal accessories, Movado clocks and fine Swiss watches. Selections are highlighted in our seasonal catalogs. There are currently more than 25 upscale Movado Boutique stores in major markets across the United States.

Excellence in design. A dedication to Swiss craftsmanship. The quest for technological innovation. The Movado philosophy remains as valid as it was in 1881. Swiss made and water resistant, all Movado watches are distinguished by a legacy of design innovation and dedication to the future of time. Discover the complete collection today.

    This watch is really slick; it looks very professional and so clean.
    Lucas Wells
    I would highly recommend a Movado watch if you are looking for quality, and the Museum if you are wanting a highly refined dressy watch.

    Don't get me wrong the watch looks great, it isn't as big as mosth watches and since I have small wrists this is perfect for me.

    This watch looks great.. it isn't as big as a lot of the popular watches out there now, the face pretty slim, which is good for me because I have smaller wrists. People are surprised that it doesn't cost more, it gets a lot of compliments. The band is leather, so it isn't as durable as some other bands would be.

    Right when you get the watch, it looks absolutely gorgeous. In this case, the pictures you see do NOT mislead.

    Except on one part, the size is actually a bit smaller than I expected. The strap length is also not the largest. My wrists are average and I am already at the 3'rd to last notch.

    I would recommend this to everyone except those with huge wrists, you might have trouble putting this on.

    Battery replacement is crazy, after 3 years I had to send it in to Movado and the replacement for the battery is $204 dlls. I paid $227 which was a great deal, so I'm almost paying for another watch just to replace the battery. Don't get me wrong the watch looks great, it isn't as big as mosth watches and since I have small wrists this is perfect for me. But the Battery Replacment is very expensive

    I was very excited when ordering this watch, seeing that I saw it in a Movado store for twice the price, ordered and I am now happily wearing the watch. Great condition and everything. A+

    I've had this watch for a little over 3 weeks now...

    The best features I love:

    - Thin. It's not a hugh honking piece of metal like most watches out there. If you're a thin, sleek man, or you dress that way, then this is probably the watch for you. I can't see beefier guys wearing this watch. It would look out of place with their physique.

    - Stylish. I've gotten about 4 comments on my watch so far. Everyone recognizes the Movado look. It helps to boost my ego.

    - Easy to read. Yes. It's not that hard to read. You just need to think a little more about where the hour hand is, but it's become automatic for me now. And if you tilt the watch just right, you can read it in low light conditions because of the shiny, metal hands.

    Some things I don't like:

    - Smudges. The face takes up fingerprints like the front of an iPhone. Can't keep it clean. erg.

    - Strap wear. I'm dubious if the strap will be able to handle a year of daily wearing. We'll see.

    Other things:

    - Not as small as you think. Yes it's not a large faced men's watch, but it is most defintiely larger than a large woman's watch. Like I said before, it's sleek, so buy that if that's your look.

    It's simple, it's uncluttered, and it's elegant. Just like the iPod. I love how the 12 o'clock orb reflects light like a silver orb.

    If you need to measure microseconds, require vibrating alarms, measure heart beats and receive emails, this is not the watch for you.

    I was worried for a bit that I might not be able to tell time with this, but I guessed and got the time right 5 out of 5 times (8:22, 7:50, 6:32, 5:43, 4:25) all within +/- 3 minutes, so I am all set.

    I'm the sportsy and sophisticated type, but sometime I like to be able to relax. I find that as a man, the type of watch you have gives others an impression of their personalities, to some extent.

    I like the sleek, simple yet elegant design of this Men Movado watch. This is the first one I've purchased and liked.

    Barely any scratches through daily normal use. Bought this since Jan. 2007.

    Even though there's no numbers on the watch, i'm able to tell time with 95% precision.

    I think this watch is great.

    I am very happy with the product. Amazon delivered it right on time and the packaging and info booklet were original Movado.
