Hebdomas Watches

HebdomasHebdomas Swiss brand is one of theHebdomas oldest companies that produce watches with complicated movements. The company was founded in 1888 by Irene Aubrey in a small village of La Chaux-de-Fonds, that was located near the French border. The company was named after an ancient Greek festival – Hebdomandaire, held on the seventh day of each month in honor of the God Apollo's birth.
The range of manufactured products was very broad. Hebdomas made pocket watches, wrist watches, carriage clocks, chronographs and calendars. Every model is handmade. Every detail of the movement and the dial always born a strict scrutiny. A balance bridge of the movement is decorated with handmade engraving. The power reserve of a patented movement is up to 8 days.
In a long period of time from 1900 to 1960 the design of wrist watches and poket watches remained unchanged. The company took part in many well-known watch exhibitions in Geneva (1896), in Paris  (1900), in Chicago (1902), in Milan (1906), in Brussels (1910) and in Bern (1914), and was awarded numerous prizes and medals.
Today Hebdomas watches can be found in private collections and museums. But the company began to sell licenses for the watch production on the patent of the movement with the 8-day pover reserve. Though only original Hebdomas watches have a true value.
