  • Catalogue Essay

    Movado, which in the constructed language Esperanto means “always in motion”, was founded by 19 year old Achille Ditisheim, a talented watchmaker who opened his workshops in La Chaux de Fonds in 1881 along with six watchmakers. The philosophy “always in motion” remained within the brand, which was constantly innovating in terms of styles and designs. From breakthrough designs like the Polyplan with an elongated curve case that earned Moved its 20th patent in 1912, to the wide array of Art Deco Ermeto clocks, and the iconic modernist Museum Dial designed by Nathan George Horwitt part of the Museum of modern Art permanent collection. Movado is exceptional in thinking outside the box and creating extraordinary designs that are perfect for those who seek for the less common. The present Movado from the 1960s is just one of those. Rectangular in shape with an unusual dual dial design operated by two individual manual movements and two crowns, some collectors might know this design as the “Gemini” dual time. Adorned with a diamond-set bezel that surrounds the pitch black dial, the legibility for this elegant timepiece is perfect for the discerned traveller. Shimmering in an attractive white gold hand-chiseled bark finished integrated bracelet, this tasteful and rarely seen Movado further retains its uncut bracelet that elevates its luxurious appeal.
