Burgond Watches

Cédric Gorgas y GalanCédric Gorgas y GalanBurGond watch construction is a founder of the Swiss BurGond watch company producing original design watches based on legends and myths of the ancient Kingdom of Burgundy.
Tribes of Burgundians come from Northern Europe settled down in the territory between Rhine and Danube. They protected eastern borders of the Roman Empire. In 443 carrying out Caesar's order, Burgundians left the banks of Rhine and started developing new territories in the northern part of modern France and Switzerland. The army of Burgundians provided a safe crossing through the Alps and protected the Empire against enemy raid. In the 6th century an independent state named Sapaudia (what means the land of firs) was founded. The capital was called Geneva. It was an important historical period of integration of northern races with Celtic and Gallic tribes.
An old legend about Nibelungs is connected with just the establishment period of the Kingdom of Burgundy. Inside the epos elements of Scandinavian, German and Celtic  myths interlace with one another. The legend says that the son of the Neerlande's (the modern Netherlands) King Siegmund and the Queen Sieglinde, a brave knight Siegfried fell in love with the king's sister of the neighbor kingdom of Burgundy, Kriemhild. The girl of amazing beauty but with cruel heart refused all aspirants to her hand and heart. But the young knight, charmed with her beauty, decided to conquer the princess's love at all costs and went to the city of Worms-on-Rhine (former capital of Burgundy).

The brave knight joined battle with the terrible dragon and defeated him. He took a bath in its blood and his skin became protective except a small part on his back on which a leaf had fallen.
