Movado Watches can trace their roots to the beginnings of the modern design movement and the group of international artists who founded the Bauhaus School in 1919. ‘Simplicity, tastefulness, function’ was their dictum. One of its purest expressions was the black watch dial defined by a single gold dot, designed by American artist Nathan George Horwitt in 1947.

‘We do not know time as a number sequence,’ Horwitt said, ‘but by the position of the sun as the earth rotates. Hence a solitary gold dot at 12 o’clock symbolising the sun at high noon; the moving hands suggesting the movement of the earth’.
