Movado Group Global Chief Marketing Officer Mary Leach added, “Mr. Ronghao Li is more than a talented musician; he has his own unique character and charisma. We were immediately drawn to Li because he has a passion for the creation of authentic artistry, self-expression and being true to yourself—characteristics that make-up our brand DNA which is expressed in the design of our timepieces.”

“I am proud to be Movado’s global ambassador and admire the brand's unique minimalist design. Movado’s iconic Museum dial design without marks, presents its authentic and minimalist attitude, it is the same as for the melody and lyrics of my music; people should always be transparent with their original intentions, keep true to themselves.”
