Michel Herbelin Watches

Founder of «Michel Herbelin» company - Michel HerbelinIn 1947 Michel Herbelin establishedMichel Herbelin watch designing his own watch brand in Sharkemon and at once invented his own formula for watches. The formula allowed him to become one of the first in his country for a short period of time: his combination of perfect quality and original and exquisite design. He was not striving for creation of technically complicated watches. Despite that, the Michel Herbelin brand had the most up-to-day equipment with the help of which timepieces were manufactured. Movements were bought from the most reliable French and Swiss suppliers. He payed peculiar attention to design of every model. Herbelin's watches did not cost much, but at the same time, it was not a shame to wear them as an evening adornment or to a smart suit. To the 60s the brand has become one of the most well-known watch companies within the creative élite and the middle class of France. Michel Herbelin timepieces absorbed the true spirit of France due to their lightness and graceful finishing.
In the end of the 60s, when the first quartz watches came to Europe from Asia, style and design were the most main salvation for this brand. Many companies located in Besançon closed or passed into quartz production, for example, the Lip company, but the Michel Herbelin company could keep its position, and, moreover, achieved certain success.
In 1972 Michel Herbelin withdrew from business, thus, turned it over to his son, Jean-Claude, who had worked at the factory for some years by that time and completely grasped all peculiarities of the watchmaking. It was he who led out the company from the crisis and changed the approach to the business. He added the company's range with actual quartz watches, but at the same time kept collections of mechanical ones. Despite that, he continued to purchase movements from the rest of Swiss producers. Due to his persistence, Jean-Claude succeeded in the watchmaking and those collections of watches which remained to the company are the persuasive evidence for this fact.
