Stylishly minimalist, this Movado Fiero men's watch is a perfect day-in/day-out timepiece, easily moving from professional to casual couture and back again. The watch case is made of tungsten carbide one of the hardest, most scratch-resistant materials currently used in jewelry--which has a gunmetal coloring--and the bracelet band mixes tungsten carbide and black rubber links. Its tall, rectangular case with gently barrel-shaped, Tonneau-style sides measures 33mm (1.3 inches). The deep black dial face includes a single polished cabochon gemstone at 12 o'clock and two silver sword-shaped hands. Powered by a precise Swiss quartz movement, it also features a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and water resistance to 30 meters (99 feet)--enabling it to withstand splashes and accidental dunks into the water, but not suitable for swimming.
About Movado Since its founding in 1881 by 19-year-old entrepreneur Achille Ditisheim in the village of La Chaux-de-faunds, Switzerland, Movado has lived up to the meaning of its name--translated as "always in motion" in the international language of Esperanto. It's created some of the world's most famous timepieces, including the 1912 Polyplan (which was constructed on three planes to fit a case curved to follow the wrist), the Kingmatic series of rotor-driven automatic watches, and the Museum Watch--created by American designer Nathan George Horwitt in 1947.
Defined by a single dot at 12 o'clock representing the sun at high noon, The Museum Watch's uncluttered dial is regarded as an icon of Modernism. In 1960, it was the first watch dial ever selected to be part of New York's Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection. Movado later teamed up with designers and artists such as Andy Warhol to create one-of-a-kind limited edition watches, which reside in museums, galleries, and collections today.
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.
