I must admit that I was initially attracted to the Movado watches based solely on their aesthetic and ad campaigns. Famous faces such as Lily Collins, Leonardo Di Caprio and most recently Kerry Washington have served as Movado ambassadors thus gracing magazine pages in simple yet stunning and effective campaigns. Upon visiting The Royal Shop on Broadstreet recently I was able to see first hand the beauty and craftsmanship of these classic time pieces. I share below a little more information on Movado and also some of my watch picks for him and her.
One of the world's leading watchmakers, Movado Group, Inc. (MGI) designs, manufactures and distributes watches for nine respected brand names. Movado, the flagship brand within the MGI portfolio, was founded in Switzerland in 1881 and acquired by the corporation in 1993. Recognized for its iconic Museum® dial and modern aesthetic, Movado has earned more than 100 patents and 200 international awards for watch design and time technology, and Movado watches are in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. This long, rich heritage of artistry and innovation in design and a close association with the arts continue to define the Movado brand identity today. Always in motion, Movado continues to create watches of exceptional craftsmanship and design distinction.
