Georges Fredric Roskopf

ROSKOPF

Georges Frederic Roskopf was born in 1813 at Niderwiller,Grand Duchy of Baden, Germany – today Niderwiller is in the French province Alsace.

At 16, George undertook a three-year apprenticeship as a sales clerk at a firm selling watchmaker’s supplies in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland.

At 21 years of age, he apprenticed as a watchmaker before quitting to marriy the wealthy widow — 17 years his senior — and, with financing by his wife , he began a etablisseur business -a company that buys watch components and assembles them.

At 37 years of age, Roskopf sold his business to become joint manager of the Guttmann Brothers of Warburg, Germany; a company that assembled “English style” watches to market to Belgium and the USA.

At 42, Roskopf set up a business his son, Fritz Edouard and Henry Gindraux, as ROSKOPF, GINDRAUX & Co. to make good-quality, low-cost watches for the working man.

At 42, Roskopf began to design a watch that could be sold for 20 Swiss francs and still be of good quality after his son left him to open his own watch business and Gindraux left to become the director of a watch making school.

At 44, Roskopf had a simple and solid watch called the montre proletaire –the laborer’s watch. But Roskopf’s watch was with met indifference and hostility among the industry watchmakers who were tied to the home industry system and did not want the competition of a mass produced watch . When Roskopf ordered two boxes of ebauches from Emile Roulet and asked Gustave Rosselet to make escapements. Both refused to take his orders.

At 54 , Roskopf finally succeeded in producing his watch with the help of The Malleray Watch Co. which supplied the ebauches and cases, while other necessary parts came from other makers. The watches themselves were assembled in France, by M. Chatelain. The original order to Malleray was 2,000 watches.

At 57,  Roskopf had expanded orders tenfold, ordering 20,000 ebauches for production. The Roskopf  affordable watch was intended for the working man, but his first customers were aristocrats and army officers. But it would be Charles Léon Schmid, a sales man Roskop hirerd to move the monthly output of 500-600 watche that got the ball rolling. By presenting the watch to officers of different European armies and railroads, the orders soon outstripped production.

Success can prove to be as dangerous as failure. The success of the Roskopf watch, and lack of a swiss patent office, invited Swiss companies to produce thousdands if not millions of knock offs. These Roskopf copies with names like System Roskopf, Gre. Roskopf , A. Roskopf  E. Rosskopf, G. Rosskopf, H. Rosskopf, J. Rosskopf, W. Rosskopf or labeled“Rosskopf (double “s”) to bypass Roskopf’s registered trade mark, began popping up all over Europe. And,to compound this fraud, unlike the sound, well engineered Roskopf, these pin-lever fakes were badly made, machine-manufactured watches that. didn’t have Roskopf’s solid, well made, patented platform-mounted escapement.

At the age of 62, Roskopf ‘s wife passed away. His loss of his waife and the distructive actions of the counterfeiting, left Roskopf a disillusioned and embittered man. In the short span from actual invention to production, Roskopf sold less than 100,000 pieces. Though Roskopf was able to patent his inventions in France, Belgium and the United States,  Switzerland would not have a patent office until 1888.The Swiss charlatans copied or faked his four patents for watch mechanisms and destroyed his market. Thus on his wifes death he turned his business over to Charles Léon Schmid and his wife’s grandsons. Roskopf would  never return to the watch making business though he would remarry –a school teacher 24 years younger — and  pass away in 1889 at 86 years of age.

 

There is an amazing ending to the Roskopf story. The new Roskopf   company, named Wille Freres, would take full advantage of the new Swiss Patent office by registering 11 patents for Roskopf watch mechanisms and would produce over 20 million watches.

Though we have written about companies who claim to have introduced the “first good quaility working man’s watches”, Roskopf was, with non other,  the first in a vast industry who would design, created, and build the first good quaility watch that was affordable to many who would never have had the ability to own a watch. This factor would  not go unnoticed.  His pin pallet escapement woud grace millions of watches and even inspire D.A. Buck of the United States to produce a cheap, easily manufactured pocket watch. The famous Dollar Watch was sold by the millions in the USA for decades. Though it made use of Roskopf’s pin pallet escapement, unlike the Roskopf, these watches were massed-produced with machine-punched parts and riveted bridges and plates to make them cheaper but unserviceable. They were the first  throw away watches.

The splendid Spanish colonial architecture & international culture of Havana was the “pearl”.  reflecting upon the fascinating and   “savoir-vivre” of its inhabitants and numerous visitors. An elegant, electric city overflowing with glamor was the Havana of (1880 – 1958) 75 years or so. Hemingway, Neruda, Gable, Churchill, Einstein and many other characters of that time were clients of the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique.

DON ARMANDO R. RIO Y CUERVO

It was in this sophisticated climate that Armando Rio y Cuervo, with the help of his brothers,  took on the management of the jewellers established by his uncle Ramón in 1882 and from   whom the name Cuervo y Sobrinos ( Cuervo and nephews) was established. The vitality and wealth of Havana   was the force that company grew and prospered Cuervo Y Sobrinos when combined with the family’s outstanding commercial and creative ability.

ELEGANT HABANA & CUERVO Y SOBRINOS & GARDENS

Three offices were opened in key points in Europe: Pforzheim in Germany, where the precious stones were selected, Paris, in Rue Melzy, where the jewels were realized and, later on, in Switzerland where the company established its watch manufacturing in La Chaux-de-Fonds, which to this day is still the capital of Swiss watch-making.

1950’S

During that period Cuervo y Sobrinos distributed and commercialized both their own creations and important trademarks of the sector. The family gained such fame that some of the noblest jewellery houses decided to engrave the name Cuervo y Sobrinos on their faces in confirmation of the importance achieved by the””House”. In a short time the Cuban signature Cuervo Y Sobrinos created a space for itself among the most prestigious watch brands in the world.

In 1898, Carnegie tried to arrange for independence for the Philippines. As the end of the Spanish American War neared, the United States bought the Philippines from Spain for $20 million. To counter what he perceived as imperialism on the part of the United States, Carnegie personally offered $20 million to the Philippines so that the Filipino people could buy their independence from the United States.However, nothing came of the offer. Carnegie also opposed the annexation of Cuba by the United States and in this, was successful with many other conservatives who founded an anti-imperialist league that included former presidents of the United States, Grover Cleveland and Benjamin Harrison, and literary figures like Mark Twain.
