NYT Crossword Puzzle 8-17-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 57A Luxury watch brand: MOVADO because I’d never heard of the company. Is it new? Nope! Founded in 1881. Hmm. I know of Citizen and Timex and Tag Heuer and Breitling and Casio and Omega. Movado? Nope! Uncultured Matt makes a reappearance!

The theme of this puzzle is a cross-up!

15D See 17-Across: You might dip a 15-Down in this before writing something: INDIA INK / NIB.
25D See 26-Across: You might dip a 25-Down in this to test the water: SWIMMINGPOOL / TOE.
27D See 44-Across: You might dip 37-Down in this at a dinner party: CHEESEFONDUE / BREAD.
55D See 59-Across: You might dip a 55-Down in this to make a candle: PARAFFIN / WICK.
