Juvenia Watches

History of Juvenia Watches

Juvenia watchesFor more than a century, Juvenia has been producing fine, innovative luxury timepieces. The factory headquarters are still situated in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, the town where Jacques Didisheim settled in 1860 to found the company.

Juvenia is credited with creating some of the first key winding systems ever used in watchmaking, including designs with a winding stem, designs with a lever escapement, and surprisingly slim movements.

In 1914, Juvenia introduced the smallest watch movement ever: 2.5 millimeters thin and 9.5 millimeters wide. In addition to wrist and pocket watches, the company was renowned for its luxury table and alarm clocks, which continue to be highly coveted by collectors. The company continues to create exceptional fine and jeweled luxury watches, making it one of the watch industry's leading manufacturers without interruption for more than 135 years.

Watchmaking Achievements of Juvenia Watches

With such a long-standing record for timepieces innovation, Juvenia continues to produce fine watches with innovative characteristics and function. The Mystere watch, for example, available in men's and women's designs, features an unusual see-through bezel treatment where the dial seems to float. The self-winding Planet watch replaces traditional hands with well-positioned circles that revolve around the dial center much like the planets in a solar system. Another watch featuring an amazing "handless" display is the Sextant watch, where a "graduated limb" indicates hours, a "compass" hand indicates minutes and a "Dauphine" sweep second hand records seconds.
