At the end of the 17th century, many skilled craftsmen fled from France to Switzerland and made Geneva their home. The city, known as the “cradle of watchmaking” at the time, attracted large numbers of learned and skilled watchmakers. Another one of these artisan watchmakers was a gentleman by the name of EMILE CHOURIET. Near the famous Place de la Fusterie in Geneva stood his small atelier, where he dedicated himself to watchmaking research. And so the legend of the manufacture, EMILE CHOURIET Watches, was born.
Jean Depery, with a background in micro-engineering, established his own watch brand in Geneva in 1998. He drew inspiration from his ancestor, Francois Dagobert Depery, himself a manufacturer of watch parts in the 17th century. Furthermore, he named his new watch brand after one of his ancestor’s main customers, the Master Watchmaker Emile Chouriet.
