A slightly scaled-down version of Movado's elegant Esperanza watch, the Esperanza Mini has the same classic Museum dial set amidst open links of stainless steel for a look that is artistic and refined. This watch features Movado's signature round black dial with gold tone Dauphine hands and a concave dot marker 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 dial on this watch is framed by a gold tone stainless steel double-ring bezel and presents on an elegant open-link gold tone steel bracelet that fastens with a jewelry clasp. This watch features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and Swiss quartz movement. Water-resistant to 99 feet, it can be worn while swimming or poolside diving, but it should not be worn while scuba diving.
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.
