Albert H. Potter was born in Saratoga County, New York in 1830 and served his apprenticeship in Albany. In 1855, he established himself in New York City. He spent five years working in Cuba and later returned to the United States and organized a watch company with his brother William Cleveland Potter.
However, in 1876, he moved to Geneva. He likely sought to surpass the boundaries of the American watchmaking industry, which, at the time, was focused on mass production, rather than individual innovation.
He produced approximately 600 watches while working in Switzerland.
