Movado Pocket Watches

In 1881, Achille Ditesheim, barely 19 years old founded his own company in Switzerland and was soon joined by three of his brothers. In 1905, a new modern factory was built and a new company name was introduced:Movado.
Movado means "always in motion" in the international language of Esperanto.

Movado Pocket Watches – Always in Motion. by Mr Goldsmith

Movado Pocket Watches have been manufactured since 1881, when a 19 year old kid had the audacity to hire several watch makers and open up shop. That kid was Achilles Ditesheim. It wasn’t until 1905, however, that Mr. Ditesheim changed the name of his product to Movado, which means ‘always in motion.’ This is a fitting name for the Movado Pocket Watches of yesterday and today.

It isn’t just the superior craftsmanship of the Movado Pocket Watches that set them apart from other watches, however. It is also the artistic design of each watch as well. You see, Mr. Ditesheim was always a lover of art, and he quickly learned to include art in his watch designs to make them stand out from other watches.

It was a well thought out concept that worked in the early 1900s, and still works today, as Movado still hires world famous artists to design watches. In fact, this concept has won the Movado Pocket Watch brand over 200 awards internationally for design, and many of those awards are also for time technology – which means that Movado Pocket Watches aren’t just for showing off; they are also made to operate in a superior fashion as well.

The first Movado Pocket Watch that featured an artists design was made in 1925, for an exposition in Paris, France. During a time when few watches were produced for women, this particular watch actually was a Movado Pocket Watch designed for women to wear.[..Read More..]

Today, collectors often seek antique Movado Pocket Watches. Of the many different brands that exist today – as well as brands that no longer even exist – the Movado brand is above all the most unique simply because of the artwork. Today, however, the most sought after watches among the Movado Pocket Watches are those that have art work by Andy Warhol, which was produced in 1988, after Mr. Warhol had passed away.

Movado Watches are so artistic, and so unique, that the Movado was the first watch to ever be accepted and displayed in the Museum of Modern Art. The watch that is displayed is the aptly named, famous Movado Museum edition – which features a single dot to represent the twelve on the watch face. This watch was designed in 1947 by Nathan George Horwitt, but it wasn’t included in the Museum of Modern Art until 1960.

For Movado Pocket Watches, the companies long held philosophy is what made the brand famous. The company has always strived for excellence in design, combined with superior Swiss craftsmanship, and combined these two endeavors with a never ending search for technological advances in terms of keeping time.

From the village of La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland to New Jersey, the Movado Pocket Watches brand has definitely spread its wings. These days, the company works with many well known brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Juicy Couture, Ebel, Coach, Hugo Boss, and several others designing watches to be distributed under these brand names. Movado Watches are sold in shops located worldwide, including the United States, Europe, South America, Canada, and Asia.
