Diesbach-Vatta carried out one's trade activity in many cities of Switzerland.
Later, in time of Peter the Great, the general Francois Lefrot made a huge contribution to the ties strengthening between two countries.
The information about the first watchmakers and jewelers in Russia are dating by 1742 and connected with the name of Jean-Piere Ador a jeweler of Yekaterina the Gteat. As other supreme leaders of the Age of Enlightenment, Yekaterina II tried to mate watchmaking manufactures in one's country, that is why a range of Swiss watch-producers carried out their activity in Russian territory.
Switzerland was almost the one outfitter who sent watches to Russia. Among lots of watch models sent to Russia the most popular were those which were supplied with a lid, made of gold or silver, supplied with a repeater or engraved and which could be fixed on a wrist.

In 1895 Patek Philippe & Cie Joseph Antoin Benassi-Philippe who was Jean-Andrien Philippe's son-in-law offered Nikolay II a complicated pocket watch. Having appreciate the watch as a true value, the Emperior ordered Patek Philippe to make such watch for him, but the company overloaded by different orders refused to produce such model however presented him the first example of such watch.
