Schwarz Etienne | Swiss Luxury Watch Brand

Schwarz Etienne

Schwarz Etienne was created in 1902 by Paul Arthur Schwarz and his wife, Olga Etienne. The company's name is derived from the founders' surnames. This family-owned company, established in La Chaux-de-Fonds in the canton of Neuchâtel, was envisioned as a creator of mechanical movements, with manufacturing centered on numerous distinct brands, including Venus, Alpha, Sultana Le Phare, and Astin.

Schwarz Etienne's reputation was built from collaborations, with the business lending its expertise to various high-profile brands, including Chanel, Dunhill, Mauboussin, and Caran d'Ache. Schwarz Etienne garnered a reputation not just for the quality and dependability of its products but also as a standard in the development of mechanical movements.
