Everyone must have heard of the term “Swiss-made” before, but where did it all really came from? The history of Swiss watches started way back in the sixteenth century in Geneva when faith based leader Jean Calvin was able to achieve a great amount of influence even in the political aspect of the state. Calvin also played a part in the prohibiting of jewelry and wearing them in public. In order for them to make a living, jewelers in the country had to resort to watch-making. A new craft was established because of this, which in turn increased the competition for this particular industry. Watch makers had to think of new strategies and innovative system in order for them to be able to keep a pace ahead of their competitors.
Some of those classic methods in watch making are still used today. In 1770, the Perpetual watch system was developed by Abraham Louis Perrelet. It was the precursor of today’s self-winding watches. During the early 1800s, Louis Moinet invented the first ever chronograph watch to be mass produced. At present, the global market for Swiss made luxury watches are continually increasing.
