Movado means “always in motion.” Has a nice ring to it, yes? Many of you Movado owners know style, craftsmanship, and quality when you see it. And it should be obvious as the Movado watch has been around since 1881 when Achilles Ditesheim, a 19-year old entrepreneur, opened his small Switzerland workshop. Its unique “Polyplan” was introduced in 1912. This was a revolutionary watch as it was constructed on three planes to fit a case that was curved to follow the natural contours of the wrist. Remarkable! The classic wrist watch was born.
Movado’s history is rich in innovation and design. In 1925, they created the Movado Pocket Watch. In 1926, they launched a unique pillow-shaped watch that automatically wound when the case was slid open. The year 1930 led to the Movado Digital Watch which displayed both hours and minutes. And then in 1946, Movado debuted the self-winding Calendomatic wrist watch featuring the month and day. Movado watches began their signature “iconic dot dial” in 1947 with their world renowned Movado Museum Watch. And since then, the Movado design has just kept expanding.
