Elegant. Innovative. Iconic. Celebrated.


2007: Movado Museum Color Dials

Interpreting time as it was measured before the dawn of watchmaking, artist Nathan George Horwitt designed the numberless watch dial defined by a single dot at 12 o’clock, symbolizing the sun at high noon in 1947. In celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Horwitt’s now legendary watch dial, Movado introduced the Museum Color Dials – oversized strap watches that presented the iconic, minimalist dial design in a sophisticated new color palette.

Presented in simple polished stainless steel or gold-toned cases, the dials, in elegant tones of green, purple and red or soft shades of gray, pink and more, were detailed by the original flat dot and thin baton hands. Strap offerings in complementary pastel tones included lizard, soft leather and grosgrain styles. By adding a refreshing touch of color to the original iconic dial design, the Museum Color Dials achieved a subtly but strikingly new aesthetic.

The single dot Museum dial is an acclaimed, trademarked design that has evolved into a full range of styles over the past six decades.
