Pioneers for 400 years

Claude Bernard timepieces celebrate a legacy of fine Swiss watchmaking dating back 400 years.

From Les Genevez, in the Swiss Jura region, Claude Bernard's craftsmen and women hand-assemble watches of exceptional quality and value.

  They carry on a tradition forged in the 16th century when initial farmers turned to watchmaking tu sustain themselves and families in the harsh winter months. From this innovative, pioneering spirit grew the Swiss watch industry and the birth of Claude Bernard the brand.
