Many companies create their names based on many different reasons. Movado kept it simple. “ALWAYS IN MOTION” was their name.

“Always In Motion” in Esperanto = Movado

Movado was started  by Achille Ditisheimin 1881 in La Chaux-de-faunds, Switzerland. The Movado specialty was creating watches by hand and by   1899 Movado was awarded six first-class Official Rating Certificates in their class, and a Silver Medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris would follow the following year.

24 years later, Movado was famous for it’s watch design and function and soon there after, it’s sweep of the 1910 Grand Prix Exhibitions in Paris, Rome, Brussels and Rio de Janeiro for their introduction of 8 ligne wristwatch movements.

1912 began with the Movado Polyplan watch; a watch that remains today highly sought after.

In 1944,  Movado seized upon the John Harwood patented BUMPER AUTOMATIC and altered it to include 17 jewels, better spring returns, a much advanced rotor design and center sweeps seconds hand and shock system AND IN 1945 introduced it as their first automatic movement called the “TEMPOMATIC”.

In 1947, American designer Nathan George Horwitt created the first Museum Watch. It featured an uncluttered dial, with a simple gold dot marker at the 12:00 position. Movado would team up to produce the Museum Watch and even worked with Andy Warhol in the creation of one-of-a-kind limited edition watches.

In the fifties and sixties watches like the KINGMATIC and others kept the company going until the quartz took over.


First 180 Bumper Automatic

The first self-winding wristwatch was invented in 1923 by a watch repairer from the Isle of Man named John Harwood. 

The Harwood system used a pivoting weight which wound the mainspring as  the wearer moved his wrist. The draw back was that the ratchet mechanism only wound the mainspring when moving in one direction and  it did not rotate a full 360.

This meant that the weight, swinging at app: 180 degrees,   would have to have a "bumper" to hit on its way back and forth.

Soon the constant banging of the weight began to cause premature failure, so springs were added as a means of shock absorbing.

This constant BUMPING would become the trade name "Bumper Automatic and this movement was utilized up into the 1950's .


First 360 Full Automatic

In 1930, Rolex, beginning with the basic Hardwood Core, improved upon the Hardwood by producing the worlds first 360 degree bi-directional automatic movement. The Pendulum would rotate 360 degrees. They patented this design and locked out all other watch makers.

EVEN STEEL CASES CAN TAKE HOURS TO
MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE THEY ARE

IT TAKES A LOT OF BUFFING AT HIGH HEAT TO RESTORE CASES.
DURING THAT PROCESS THE ROUGE IS ACTUALLY BUFFED INTO THE SKIN
ONE HAS TO “FEEL” THE PIECE TO GET IT RIGHT. SO MY HANDS ARE
USED TO CASE TEMPERATURES THAT ARE SO HOT THEY CAN BURN PAPER
AS A RESULT OF THIS FACT, IT TAKES DAYS TO GET THE ROUGE OUT OF
MY HANDS. SO IF YOU SEE PICS OF MY HANDS IN PHOTOS
, KNOW IT IS SEMI-PERMANENT FOR DAYS……..
AND THAT IS WHY OUR CASES ARE AWESOME.
