Joseph Chevalier – From Vision to Reality

June 2004


As an autonomous member of the Festina Group, and with a new concept, Joseph Chevalier Montres SA of Le Sentier, Switzerland continues the story of the Geneva master watchmaker Joseph Chevalier.
Joseph Chevalier was one of the outstanding master watchmakers of the 17th century. With his remarkable works, he gained an outstanding reputation within his guild and beyond the borders of his home town of Geneva. As an autonomous member of the Festina Group and with a new concept, the Swiss company Joseph Chevalier Montres SA now continues the story of the legendary master watchmaker. While development and production of the collections are located at the headquarters of the company in the Swiss watchmaking centre of Le Sentier, sales and marketing are handled by the German branch office, Joseph Chevalier Montres GmbH in Pforzheim. In both esthetics and craftsmanship, the classic-modern collection bridges the gap between elegant design and technological progress. The sale of the collection, which is marketed worldwide, is handled exclusively via authorized retailers.
