Agam's 80s Kinetic Op-art Watches for Movado

A Kinetic & Op-Art pioneer, Yaacov Agam created this 1980's limited edition watch series for the Movado Time Museum Collection. The only other artist to produce a watch for Movado was Andy Warhol with his 'Times/5'.

Featuring anthracite colored steel straps, a mystery dial of multi-colored glass discs rotating circles/semi-circles overlaying dotted hands for time. Sold at auction in 2000 for $10,925.
