Even back in 1947, Movado knew how to keep it simple. That’s when Nathan George Horwitt, with inspiration from his close collaborator, Albert Einstein, created an iconic round watch dial marked with a single dot at 12 o’clock that forever changed the face of the luxury brand. Sixty years later Movado celebrates Horwitt’s minimalist Museum dial in the right spirit with a new collection of timepieces that mimic the original in an array of colors both pastel and bright. In similar retro fashion, Mark Davis opts for simple disks of bold color for his mosaic-like pendants cut from pieces of vintage Bakelite and accented with touches of 18-karat gold. And finally, Fabrice contrasts a sturdy arc of resin with geometry of a sharper sort for his edgy brass brooch.
