Elegant. Innovative. Iconic. Celebrated.


1981: Movado Imperiale

Uniting the dot motif from the celebrated Museum dial with the sportive spirit of stainless steel, Movado launched the Imperiale, a highly popular Swiss quartz bracelet watch later renamed Sports Edition.

Imperiale’s simple round bezel and the center of its wide, flat horizontal bracelet links in brushed steel are both punctuated by golden concave dots, reprising the iconic symbol that defines the black Museum dial.

A casually distinctive Movado design, the Imperiale grew increasingly popular as new variations were introduced over the next two decades – the 1990’s Sports Edition and the more sculpted, sport elegant new Movado SE launched in 2000, both highlighted in ads with tennis great Pete Sampras, the bolder 2008 SE and today’s SE Extreme and SE Pilot designs – all distinguished by Movado’s signature dot motif.
