History of Swiss watch brands
Already in the middle of the 16th century began the history of Swiss watches. Especially the region around Geneva is famous for its high density of high-quality watch manufactures. From there the watchmakers spread all the way up to Basel. Already at the end of the 18th century the export of Swiss watches amounted to about 60,000 copies per year and quickly developed into an independent economic factor.
The watchmaking trade in Switzerland has steadily continued to develop and still maintains its very good reputation. Many of the greatest technical innovations in mechanical watches, such as the Tourbillon, the Breguet spiral or the chronograph, can be attributed to Swiss watchmakers.
