Yves Béhar Amps Up Movado Edge
Must-have watchmaker Movado turns to noted designer Yves Béhar for a technical twist on the Movado Edge watch collection. Working with Béhar’s firm fuseproject, the new release re-sees the watchmaker’s signature 1947 style from industrial designer Nathan George Horwitt in new forms, as classic materials are swapped for foreign textures and an entirely new three-dimensional construction. “It [was] both daunting and an exciting challenge to design for Movado,” says Béhar. “The opportunity to stand out—to stand for something—can be rare in watch design.” From a stainless steel style with a sandblasted black dial and bold neon hands—our personal favorite—to an aqua-washed version with a midnight blue subdial and red and glossy gray hands, the 14-piece collection fuses modern mechanics with innovate style and a depth of texture.
