About

The company that became Movado was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 1881 by a 19-year old entrepreneur, Achille Ditisheim. In 1885 two of his brothers, Leopold and Isidore joined him and the name of the company became L. A. I. Ditisheim from a combination of their initials. It later became L. A. I. Ditisheim & Frère when another, unnamed, brother joined. In 1905 the company adopted the name Movado, meaning "always in motion" in the international language of Esperanto.

In 1969 Movado joined with Zenith and Mondia to form Mondia-Zenith-Movado. Like every Swiss watch manufacturer, Movado suffered during the "quartz crisis" of the 1970s and in the 1980s became a dormant company, existing in name only. In 1983 Movado and Zenith separated and Movado was bought by the American Gerry Grinberg, who escaped the Communist revolution in Cuba. Today the Movado brand is part of a global group Movado Group, Inc. (MGI).

This is a beautiful vintage piece with a lovely colour to the dial. Enquire for more details.
