Timepiece Tuesday: Movado 1881 Collection

You can probably spot a Movado from a mile away—thanks to their notably minimalist, and wildly popular, Museum dial watches.

But the Museum watch didn’t come on the scene until the late 1940s, over a half century after Movado began making precision mechanical timepieces in Switzerland in 1881.
