Swiss Made Roberge Watches
Roberge watches uphold the distinguished tradition of Swiss watchmaking. In fact, instead of the usual "Swiss Made" mark that appears on most watches, Roberge watches are marked with "Manufacture en Suisse" the brand's seal of quality insuring that the timepieces crafted in its Le Brassus, Switzerland, factory are 100 percent Swiss even down to the smallest components. All movements and external components are made entirely in Switzerland in cooperation with top-flight suppliers. While known for its savoir faire in design and craftsmanship, Roberge established its reputation not in the past, but on knowledge and mastery of watchmaking. The Roberge workshop, a model of precision, is under the supervision of Jean-Daniel Dubois. The 17 Roberge master craftsmen make only 4,000 watches a year.
History of Roberge Watches
Although the Roberge brand was launched in 1972, the story behind the brand's creation
dates back to the mid-19th century: for more than 110 years, four generations of the
Mouawad family have worked in the fine jewelry and watchmaking trade. Robert Mouawad and
his three sons continue this family tradition, adorning watches with precious stones to
create one-of-a-kind jewelry watches.
Characteristics of Roberge Watches
Adherence to traditional know-how in such specialized crafts as engraving, gem-setting, and case-making has made Roberge watches sought after by connoisseurs and collectors. In addition to offering many of its styles in white, pink or yellow 18k gold as well as stainless steel, Roberge also has devised innovative gem-setting techniques for watches, including diamonds in steel and even pastel hues of sapphires. In addition to offering hand-crafted metal bracelets in steel and precious metals, the brand's straps can be found in exotic leather, such as lizard or crocodile, and in satin versions for women.
