UPDATE: march 21, 2016


at baselworld 2016, movado announced new editions of yvés behar’s ‘edge’ timepiece. the collaboration continues the exploration, playing with materials, bands and bezels. copper faces create a color contrast, mixing cold and warm tones. the women’s bands include a bracelet bangle to complement the slim bezel and added a nickeled patterning around the edges.

designed in collaboration with yves béhar, the ‘edge’ collection is the latest by luxury watchmakers movado. the series reimagines the ‘museum dial’ conceived in 1947 by artist nathan george horwitt. the combined effort of modern design and sculpture is revealed in these contemporary timepieces which bring a fresh dimension to the original dial while celebrating its influences rooted in the bauhaus movement.

with a direct aesthetic, the movado ‘edge’ for men is crafted in solid polished stainless steel or black PVD-finished steel with a round 40 mm case. the transformed concave dials are available in sandblasted black, gray, metallic silver or midnight blue. defined by a signature ray-textured edge, each dial is detailed by a raised polished matching tonal dot at twelve o’clock, a matte hour hand, and glossy minute hand.




the 42 mm case is polished stainless steel or black PVD-finished steel with distinctively styled chronograph pushers. indexed by an arabic minute ring printed in white, the chronograph dial in black or midnight blue aluminum is finished with three tonal sub dials in white printing.

the 34 mm polished case for women is in stainless steel or steel with a polished yellow gold or rose gold PVD finish, and is contrasted in texture by a sandblasted concave dial. the series of ‘edge’ timepieces is a reflection of a 21st-century collaboration of fine swiss watchmaking from movado and designed-focused imagination ushered in by yves béhar.
