Watches have been a Swiss specialty since the middle of the 16th century, Geneva region being particularly famous in this respect.
It was the puritanical reformer, Johann Calvin (1509 – 1564) who encouraged the people of Geneva to ‘dress simply’ and to avoid ‘all that silly pomp.
Evidently, the people of Geneva found it difficult to accept Calvin’s dictate, for the townsfolk were reluctant to live without any jewelry at all.
They began to buy watches from that point in time – watches designed with elaborate decorativeness by jewelers who were converting to watchmaking, and whose volume of work increased remarkably.
Later in the 18th century, watchmakers settled along the Jura, not least because there were already so many in Geneva by that time.
By the end of the 18th century 60,000 watches were already being exported annually. The watch industry rapidly developed into an independent economic entity in Switzerland.
Further important trends developed, such as the chronograph by the Frenchman Rieussec in 1821, indicator of the chronograph by Louis-Frédéric Perrelet in 1827 and the perpetual calendar.
The first wrist watch was available on the market after the First World War. Eight years later it was also available in an automatic version.
Since then watches have continued to develop further. LCD displays, quartz watches , auto quartz watches without batteries, watches set with diamonds and finally the personalized watch.
