Kennedy Center Honorees Receive Movado Watches

During the first weekend of December, Movado Group was present to celebrate the country’s artistic royalty at the Kennedy Center Honors. The five artistic luminaries honored this year were pianist Leon Fleisher, actor and writer Steve Martin, singer Diana Ross, film director Martin Scorsese, and songwriter Brian Wilson.

Movado, the official watch of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, helped the center celebrate 30 years of the Kennedy Center Honors and while celebrating its own 60th Anniversary of its Museum dial. Paying tribute to both milestones, Efraim Grinberg, Movado Group president and chief executive officer, joined Kennedy Center chairman Stephen A. Schwarzman and president of the Kennedy Center Michael Kaiser, at a small reception prior to the Chairman’s Honorees Luncheon held on Saturday, Dec. 1.

During the reception, Grinberg presented each honoree with a limited edition 60th Anniversary Movado Museum Watch. The following day, the president Bush and Mrs. Bush received the honorees and members of the Artists Committee, who nominate them, along with the Kennedy Center Board of Trustees at the White House prior to the gala performance.  

“The powerful connection between Movado and the arts has become the foundation of the Movado brand experience. That is why it is a great privilege to be associated with The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and such an extraordinary group of the world’s most talented artists,” Grinberg said.
