Manufacture Royale is a Swiss luxury watch brand. Founded in the eighteenth century, the brand was revived in 2010.[1] [2]

History[edit]

In 1770, philosopher Voltaire supports the establishment of watchmaking workshops in Ferney-Voltaire near Geneva and Manufacture Royale is established. It is then an important producer of timepieces and the famous Jean-Antoine Lépine, clockmaker to the king, is one of its watchmakers.[3][4] Manufacture Royale also made objets d'art such as table watches. The Manufacture gently disappeared in the vicissitude of time but was revived in 2010.

Watches[edit]

Modern watches of the brand are complicated Haute Horlogerie, manufactured in-house. The first models were tourbillon watches and a minute repeater.[5] It was followed by the Androgine, 1770 and voltige collections.
