by John Sealander

If you’re looking for someone who understands pocket watches, Gevril has been making them since 1758.

Gevril WatchesGevril has been making fine Swiss watches for more than 265 years. Jacques Gevril, the company’s founder, created his first chronometer in 1743, and by 1758, the company’s reputation had grown to the point where Gevril became Switzerland’s first official exporter of Swiss timepieces. Many of the spectacular Gevril timepieces created during the 1800’s are considered true works of art and are now on display in museums throughout Europe.

Gevril 1758 Men’s Pocket Watch CollectionWhen Samuel Friedmann acquired Gevril Horlogerie in 2001, he was determined to keep this unique heritage alive. Production of Gevril timepieces, including the historically significant 1758 Collection, has been strictly limited. These fine timepieces are hand crafted at the company’s manufacturing facilities in Switzerland using the finest available materials.

Jacques Gevril’s original pocket watches were so well received that he was appointed Royal Swiss Watchmaker to the Spanish Crown. Luckily, you don’t have to be royalty to obtain a modern Gevril pocket watch. You just have to have the good taste to appreciate them.
