From Movado's Aprezi series comes this elegant timepiece in solid 14 karat yellow gold. Gleaming polished gold links lead to a black Museum dial with gold Dauphine hands and a single concave dot marker at the twelve o'clock hour. This is Movado's signature dial, made famous by American designer Nathan George Horwitt, who intended his minimalist design to be evocative of a sun dial, with the dot representing the sun at high noon. The dial is capped with a virtually scratch-proof sapphire crystal and framed by a smooth round bezel. Simple yet stunning, this Movado watch boasts Swiss quartz precision and is rated water resistant to 30 meters.
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.
