Along with producing stunning watches, Chopard also manufactures jewellery and other fashionable accessories. The history of Chopard is an interesting one. The company was founded by the son of a farmer, Louis-Ulysse Chopard who at the age of 24 quickly dominated the watch manufacturing world. As an artisan watchmaker, his designs were innovative for their time and helped him cement his name when he drew in clients such as the Tsar of Russia, Nicholas the Second.
When the company was founded, there were 15 other independent watchmakers working in the farming village of Sonvilier. But from the very beginning, Chopard stood out from the rest of them, with his watches characterised by the exceptional quality and precision that only Chopard Watches can boast having.
The 19th century proved to be a time of tremendous growth for the company. During this century the company built its reputation and managed to secure prestigious commissions when it became the watch manufacturer of choice for the Swiss Railways and Tir Federal. With pocket watches and one of a kind chronometers, Chopard stood out from other companies.
Precision and reliability have become a trademark for this company. These unwavering characteristics have helped to build the foundation of the company and they are what has made Chopard Watches highly sought-after.
