Catalogue Note

Paul-Léopold Buhré first opened a shop in St. Petersburg in 1815.  He was succeeded by his son, also Paul, who was both a watchmaker and a good business man.  The firm expanded and garnered a reputation of selling high quality timepieces to important Russian officials and nobility, eventually obtaining the title of official purveyor to His Majesty.  Buhré not only retailed Swiss pieces, but set up his own factory in Switzerland, employing the talented watchmaker Paul Girard to manage it.
