Hublot Replica watches for sale At this time, John Calvin a religious reformer, well known for both his controversial views and austere standards of living, decided that citizens should not be allowed to wear jewellery. The jewellery makers faced financial ruin and coupled with the fact that watches were the only item of jewellery still permitted to be worn, decided to turn their attention to the art of watch making for which there was a steadily increasing demand.By the end of the 16th century, the watchmakers of Geneva had established a reputation for making quality desirable products and although watches were being made all around the world by this time, the Swiss formed the world’s first watchmaking guild. Thus in 1601 history records Geneva in Switzerland as the birthplace of the entire industry.The early watch designs were manufactured to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, accuracy of time keeping was not the initial attraction of owning a Swiss timepiece (if you wanted an accurate watch prior to 1850, the bulky rather plain looking watches from Great Britain were perhaps a better choice) although some quality watches were made, manufacturers tended to pander mainly to the demands of their rich fashionable clientele who simply wanted to look good. Other European countries including: Italy Germany & France were also producing quality timepiece and the Genevese watch makers were not averse to travelling abroad for study, to copy designs and improve their skills.
Replica Richard Mille watches for sale Geneva soon became crowded with watchmakers; some settled in the area from abroad, manufacturing took place in small houses and was very compartmentalized, a lot of intricate handwork was involved. It was typical for one craftsman to work on one part of a watch and then pass it on to another in a different area of the city to work on another part. There was no standardisation in procedure and thus manufacture could be a long drawn out process with corrections having to be made to each watch as it passed from one manufacture to another. It was fairly accurate to say that each watch was unique.Watches have been a Swiss speciality since the middle of the 16th century, the 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 and snatching at human glory’.Evidently, the people of Geneva found it difficult to accept Calvin’s dictate, for the townsfolk were reluctant to live without any jewellery at all. In line with political correctness, they began to buy watches from that point in time – watches designed with elaborate decorativeness by jewellers who were converting to watchmaking, and whose volume of work increased remarkably. The watchmaking trade in Geneva today still enjoys a lofty reputation.

In 1967 the Centre Electronique Horolger in Neuchatel developed the world’s first quartz wristwatch and sales of electronic watches now account for 90% of all watches produced in Switzerland, however at the quality end of the market, the remaining 10% of traditional mechanical watches account for over 50% in terms of export value.In recent years since the introduction of electronic watches, the number of producing companies has fallen from several thousand to around 500 with consolidation taking place all of the time. For over four hundred years Switzerland has managed to stay at the forefront of watch production by a combination of tradition and a willingness to embrace both new technology and change. Perhaps the real reason for its success as a producer of watches is the sheer number of products it is able to offer covering all budgets with a seemingly infinite range of designs and specifications.
Swiss Luxury Replica watches 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. The first automatic winding watch – a pocket watch – was invented by Louis-Abraham Perrelet in the Jurassic Swiss town of Le Locle in 1770. The marching movement of the wearer caused impacts, which in turn caused a weight to move upwards and downwards resulting in the winding of the watch. The watch was referred to as a ‘Montre à secousse’ (shock wave watch) in Switzerland and as a pedometer watch in England.Since then watches have continued to develop further.
