Many customers associate the Movado brand with a simple and classic design. One of the most popular styles of Movado watches is the 'Watch Museum.' The Movado design was created by an American-born industrial designer named Nathan George Horwitt Russiam, in 1947. When this design was first introduced, a lot of criticism came from people who thought that the dial design was not going to be any good because it was not very informative and seemed very sterile.

Horwitt’s design had a large circle in the position of the number 12 on the watch face as a symbol of the Sun, as the center of the measurement of time. He was said to have done this because the Earth revolves around the Sun and the fact that time is caused due to this fact.

However, it took another 15 years for anyone to agree with his use of this simple design and he finally managed to get a prototype into production by 1960. In that year the Museum of Modern Art in New York presented his new design, called the Museum Watch, to the world. After this, the design caught on and it was put into mass production by the Swiss company, Movado.

Today, this Museum Watch design is recognized as one of the most successful industrial designs and has since became an iconic symbol for Movado watches, which all have been identified with the design of this simple design. So, if you want to own a piece of history, then chose the simple, yet elegant Movado watch for your next watch.
