Harry Winston Watches Harry Winston is one of the biggest and most well known jewelry companies in the world. It wasn't until 1989 that the brand introduced its first collection of watches. In 1994 Ronald Winston creates the Galatea watch, a unique watch made of solid rhodium. That year also brings the invention of the Biretrograde Perpetual Calendar. Patek Philippe The Patek Philippe company stands for quality and reliability. As an illustration, each single automatic movement manufactured by the company is put through approximately 600 hours of quality control. The assembled watches are then taken through severe testing and observation for 15 days to one month (depending on the type of movement) before they are deemed ready for the customer. Perhaps due to this concentrated attention on each watch, only 30,000 watches are produced annually, in small series ranging from a few to several hundred.

Brands Audemars Piguet Audemars Piguet began in 1875 when Jules Audemars, then 23, and Edward-August Piguet, 21, met in the Valle de Jous looking for jobs in the local watchmaking industry. Audemars was the watchmaker in charge of production, and Piguet took charge of sales and marketing. Successful from the beginning, the Audemars Piguet trademark was registered in 1882, and the firm was officially founded later in 1889. Today, Audemars Piguet is the oldest Manufacture still owned and operated by its founding families. Ulysse Nardin Ulysse Nardin was founded in 1846 and, over the next 150 years, the watchmakers had received 18 gold medals and more than 4,000 other awards for their technology and craftsmanship. The company is noted for maintaining close relationships with the top scientists and inventors throughout its history, thus assuring excellence and state- of-the art creations. Special Features This company's major claim to fame is the production of highly complicated watches and chronometers that are technical masterpieces of innovation and precision. Among the company's special features. Girard-Perregaux One of the oldest watch companies in the world, Girard-Perregaux dates back to 1791 via its predecessor J. F. Bautte. A series of mergers and acquisitions resulted in the Girard-Perregaux of modern times, but the quality, innovation, and style born centuries ago remain as the guiding forces for the company today.
Hublot Hublot's creator, Carlo Crocco, grew up in an Italian family of watchmakers. He had designed his first watch by 1967. In 1980 he followed in his families footsteps and set up his own company, MDM Geneva. That same year he created the first Hublot watch, it featured a gold porthole shaped watch case and incorporated both polished and brushed metal on a black rubber bracelet. This was the first watch in the history of watchmaking to have a natural black rubber bracelet. IWC The International Watch Company (IWC) is a Swiss company, founded by an American. Florentine Jones made the decision in the 1860s to establish a manufactory in Switzerland. In so doing, he was able to take advantage of the Swiss watchmaking expertise and lower wages of the workers. Jones was not well-funded, however, and he eventually had to give up control of the company. Over the years, the company changed ownership many times and experienced a veritable roller-coaster of success and failures. Today, however, the IWC is a strong participant on the world stage of luxury timepieces. Jaeger-LeCoultre The Jaeger-LeCoultre company was born in the Swiss Jura Mountains in 1833. Since their inception, they have maintained a steady presence among the world's leading manufacturers of elegant timepieces. Today, the company boasts an impressive collection of watches ranging in a variety of styles serving the luxury market. For more information please visit http://www.finestwatches.com
