拍品資料及來源

The Juvets were one of the most important Swiss horological families to work for the Chinese market in the 19th century. In 1844, Edouard Juvet (1820-1883) moved his workshop the short distance from his base at Buttes to Fleurier, a town that became synonymous with watches made for the Chinese market. Edouard began making watches for the Chinese market in 1856 and his son, Ami-Louis, travelled to China to work locally for the family firm. Following his death, Ami-Louis was succeeded by his brother Léo (1848-1891). In Shanghai, the Juvets only serious competitors were the Bovets, yet the two families maintained friendly relations. The Maison Juvet prospered and further branches opened in Tien-tsin and Saigon. In 1873, Edouard Juvet registered a trademark in Chinese characters which was then used on the company’s watches. Edouard granted his son Léo power of attorney in November 1875 and, after his death in February 1883, Léo succeeded him as head of the firm.
