The art of watchmaking first gained a foothold in the mountainous Jura region of Switzerland, which stretches from Basel to Geneva, more than 200 years ago. In those days farmers often learned this craft as a means of filling the long winter months and boosting their meagre income. For some of them, this challenging and highly sophisticated craft became a true passion. The history of DAVOSA Swiss Watches can be traced back to one of these families of farmers and watchmakers from the Jura Mountains. And today the DAVOSA brand is an integral part of the watch world.
