In the cradle of Swiss watchmaking
Our journey starts in the small town of Le Locle, deep in Switzerland’s cradle of Swiss watchmaking: the Jura Mountains. Georges Ducommun was one of 13 children and only twelve years old when he began his apprenticeship with an established watchmaker in 1880. As the family was not well off, Georges had to contribute his share to the family income. Georges´ temperament for hard work and discipline combined with a passion for mechanical precision and beauty meant timepieces passed through increasingly skilled and expert hands.
