JUVET HISTORICAL CARVED HALL MARK

THE LEGEND OF JUVET HISTORY IN CHINA

In 1850, the China Qing Dynasty opened a number of ports to foreign trade.
At that time JUVET was already well established in China. In 1856, Edouard
Juvet of Switzerland began to produce the "Big Eight Pieces" pocket watches
specially designed for the China market.

The first JUVET watch shop was established in Shanghai when in 1860, Edouard Juvet's two sons,
Ami Louis Juvet and Leo Juvet moved to Shanghai, China to manage the JUVET watch business.

During the time, JUVET watches were very successful in China’s flourishing watch market.
The Beijing and Tianjin JUVET branches were subsequently opened in the next two years.
JUVET pocket watches were finely handcrafted and their unique artistic style were welcomed
by the royal family members and nobles of the Qing Dynasty. Owning a JUVET pocket watch
is a symbol of nobility. JUVET has since become the emperor’s watch brand.
