Huguenot Watches

Huguenot company staffIn 2009, Huguenot company, producingHuguenot salon wrist watches was founded in the city of Biel, Switzerland. The design of the models is based on the well-known symbol, the Huguenot cross, created in 1688 by the skilled jeweller Maystre. The brand name is derived from the historical term "Huguenot", that appeared in Europe in 1520-1525. According to the researches, the word has come from the German “Eidgenossen”, that means "ally."
The religious wars that took place in the 16-17 centuries in Europe, caused the catastrophic devastation, that resulted in the massive migration of people from towns and villages. The wave of mass migration, sweeping on Europe, paralyzed the daily tempo of life in many European cities. In 1680, the population of Geneva almost tripled due to the Huguenots, who had arrived from France.
Some of the new-comers were the artisans, the Huguenots who had lost all their property and capital. But some of them were very good at watchmaking, and soon small workshops, producing watches were opened in a new place. Some time later the watchmakers established a corporation known as “Order and Regulations of the Guild of Horologers”. This story pours some light on the origin of Horology in Geneva.
The Huguenots also contributed to the development of the watchmaking in Holland, England and Switzerland. Their cultural heritage has left its indelible imprint on the social and cultural life in Switzerland.
The young company produces the exquisite handmade watches. These models are based on the original Swiss ETA movement caliber 2892. The watch case is made of high quality steel and the dial is decorated with the handmade engraving. The handmade straps are produced from crocodile leather.
