Simply magnificent, the history of the Movado takes one back to 1881 in a village of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland to meet its founder, a 19 yr old Achille Ditesheim. His passion for the art of designing time pieces brought him to open a small workshop and name it “Movado” simply because it meant something of the sorts to be always in motion. He hired six men to man the workshop with him. He went on to design pocket watches that were far beyond the times in which he lived, he turned that into a designer’s paradise of precision watches. One does not simply stumble upon 200 plus International Awards and become parts of permanent collections in museums throughout the world. Achille was an innovator, a pioneer, a designer who managed to build an empire with one simple set of numbers beginning with 1 and ending with 12.

The elegant sense of style for the casual wearer of the Amoroso truly defines the intent of the Movado. It was never just about the day and hour. Movado –always in motion—timeless- sleek, like a panther that is on the hunt, the lines are clearly defined yet appealing to all who see. The Amoroso is not the accessory but it is rather the one who chooses to be its model. Comparatively priced at one thousand US dollars, it remains a well-respected and desirable timepiece. With fours marketable years under its band, the Amoroso still holds a fair share on the market, the solid almost new to the market price tag reflects its ongoing popularity. The reviews remain high-highly pleased with some reporting a minor 2-3 week wait list.
Achille Ditesheim knew what it took to draw the attention of another. It wasn’t just about drawing their attention; one had to simply cause them to glance back a few times. The sleek and elegant style of the Movado Amorosa has that ability. The simple addition of the black dial plate drew the attention back a time or two in wonderment a simple acknowledgment for the watcher to indeed verify that it was not a source of trickery. The Amorosa has always had that ability; the envy and jealousy …can’t be helped when one steps out in style, grace and sheer elegance.
