Product Description

The case was made by Swiss case maker Huguenin Frères, a company that dates back to 1868.
By the end of the 19th century, they were specialising in the niello method, which gives silver watches an elegant black finish. This method gained the company worldwide fame and as a result of their new-found success, they switched from manual production to industrial production in 1899 by building the factory in Le Locle, which is still in use today.
