The history of  Pierce company began in 1883. The brand was founded in Bienne, Switzerland – it is one of the centers of the Swiss watchmaking, where a lot of the most famous watch companies had been established. The founder of the elite  Pierce company chose the right place for the watch production, as Bienne had been the workplace of more than 1700 watchmakers for a long time.

Pierce 1883 watch mechanismsPierce 1883 watch company was founded by Leon Levy Freres and his brothers. As for every company founder, it was very important for them to gain love, to win recognition and to establish a reputation as a producers of premium quality watches. It should be mentioned, that actually the founders of the watch brand have managed not only to make a name for themselves, but also to obtain the recognition of many watch connoisseurs. But in the year of  Pierce foundation, the watch market was not so rich of various models as it is now. At that time, chronographs were not so popular, watches were not water resistant and the automatic movements were housed in the watch cases extremely seldom. Pierce company began to develop and release the wrist watches as well as pocket chronographs. For the watch production the brothers used only high quality materials. The best watchmakers, working in Pierce company, created small masterpieces, that won the hearts of many watch connoisseurs.
At the present time Pierce watches combine the old horological traditions with the innovative technologies. The refined watches, such as Arabesque, Observator, Commander, Air Command, Flightcalendar, Ocean Drive, are the striking examples of the high quality and the exclusive design. The round watch cases are produced from 316L stainless steel. Several models have the guilloche dials, that feature Arabic numerals, two hands and a small  second hand at “6:00”. The other models have the dark dials with three long hands and numerals 12, 3, 6 and 9, enclosed in the triangles. The third model is presented with the steel case and the toothed bezel. In this case, the designers have chosen the light-coloured dials, that feature two beautiful hands, a date aperture at “3:00” position ans a small second hand at “6:00” position.
