Midweek Modness: Vintage Movado Museum Watch

Vintage Movado Museum Watch

I’ve had a Movado Museum watch on my “To Get” list forever. Which is why I felt like such a dolt when, last week, I went through a box of watch bits that I won at an auction last November and discovered that I already had this brown-dialed beauty. It’s also running and keeping good time. The only problem is that it’s missing its case. Grrr!

The Museum is one of the most iconic watch designs. Created by artist Nathan George Horwitt in 1947, the single dot at 12 o’clock symbolizes the sun at high noon. I will find a case for this movement. I swear it!
