Bulova is so known as one of the world’s premier watch companies that few are aware of its roots as one of America’s longstanding makers of clocks. The company was founded in 1875 in New York City, long before the wristwatch was invented, and soon became a respected name in mechanical clockworks and ornate, decorative clocks for the home.
If any watch company has a reason to celebrate an anniversary, it is Jaeger-LeCoultre. As one of the original Swiss heritage brands, its founders were at the forefront of the first golden age of watchmaking – from about 1800 to 1870. Founded 180 years ago in 1833, Jaeger-LeCoultre is a still a leading member of today’s elite watchmaking culture, now in its second golden age of innovation. Over the past 180 years, Jaeger-LeCoultre has filed 400 patents.
