History

Movado was founded in 1881 in La Chaux de Fonds by Achille Ditesheim in making pocket watch. The success is eminent and his two brothers Leopold and Isidore joined the Co. named “L.A.I. Ditesheim” at that time. It offered a large variety of products including ladies wristwatches, pendant to name a few. The name of “Movado” came in 1903 discovered in an Esperanto dictionary and meaning “Always in motion”. Its first movement “Polyplan” came in 1912 but it is also the year the Co. presents their chronographs. In 1914, came the first wristwatch for the soldiers. In 1926 came the “Ermeto”. 1939, comes the M90 movement, then the M95 without forgetting the caliber 478. In 1939 came this prototype in the spirit of the Reverso, a piece of art. 1947, Nathan George Horwitt created a blank dial distinguished only by a gold dot at 12 o’clock. This design entered into the permanent collection of the NY Museum of Modern Art in 1956. In 1969, Movado merged with Zenith. In 1984, Movado passed into the ownership of the North American Watch Corp. Today, the leading line continues to be the “Museum” model.
