Kenny Scharf – “Starring The Star”
In 2009, Movado proudly introduced its newest Artists’ Series watches featuring eye-catching, boldly graphic dial designs by American artist Kenny Scharf.
Scharf, who was born in Hollywood, California in 1958 and holds a B.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts in New York, has earned international recognition for his playful, topical, powerful paintings which deliberately push the line between pop culture and fine art.
A colorful, captivating miniature work of art, each Kenny Scharf dial design – Movado Time, Blurple Time, Universal Time, Starring the Star, Ontime and Time Flies – is framed in a simple round stainless steel case with custom-engraved back. Two interchangeable leather straps which play off colors in the individual dial accompany each timepiece.
Produced in limited editions of 125 individually numbered pieces, each came packaged in a Scharf-design box with a certificate of authenticity. The first 25 pieces in each edition were reserved for special collector’s sets.
In 2010, Movado launched five new Kenny Scharf limited edition watches.
