As one of the world’s famous watch brands, Movado is famous for its unique minimalist design. Adhering to the minimalist dial elements designed by Bauhaus artist Nathan George Howett in 1947, the charm of minimalist timepieces has been explained to people from different angles over the years. At the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show 2017, Movado continued to combine contemporary creative design with the brand’s classic minimalist elements to launch this outstanding and memorable timepiece: Movado Modern Classic Blue Disk Mechanical Watch. The new timepieces still take the theme of minimalism and combine the more popular urban blue color elements to interpret a new chapter of minimalist timepieces.

In 1960, Howett’s watch dial was selected into the collection of the Museum of Modern Art Design in New York. It became one of the few dials to receive this award in history, and also derived the reputation of ‘Museum Collection Watch.’ Symbol of modernism. It continues in the new Movado watch.
