Movado Introduces Kenny Scharf Artists’ Series Timepieces

Sep 04, 2009
The new line of Artists’ Series watches was created by the brand of Movado to remind of the psychedelic 60’s. Based on the Museum Face architecture, the dials of the watches from the Artists’ Series feature true pieces of art, which is uncommon for Movado: this watchmaker usually produces such watch dials blank.

Surprising as it may seem, Kenny Scharf was a child in the 1960’s and early 1970’s, the period of time his paintings are very much associated with. He earned his fame much later, in the 1990’s. Since then, Scarf has been considered to be a pop/fine artist.

The Movado specialists have opted for six Scharf paintings and used their miniatures for the dials of the watches from the unique limited series collection. The latter is restricted to just 125 pieces for every model.

Each timekeeper case, sculptured in stainless steel, features a conventional case-back.

Every timepiece is animated by a Swiss quartz movement and fitted with a sapphire crystal.

Attached to these watches are two leather straps: the first is performed in a custom color and the second one echoes the colors of the dial, changing with every model.

The brand of Movado has proposed exclusive Artists’ Series limited series timepiece lines since 1987.
