JOVIAL

History

Founded in 1929 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, a cradle of Swiss watchmaking, Jovial was first and foremost the fulfillment of a dream of the watchmaker Droz. The company gradually developed to become Jovial Montres SA and moved to Bienne in 1946. The brand will be celebrating its 77th anniversary next year. It not only continues to rely upon its history and know-how to offer a broad range of watches crafted in the grand Swiss tradition, but also constantly develops new models with new technology, using the best designers and engineers to strongly establish itself on the international markets.
