In 1853, in the little Jura town of Waldenburg, where high unemployment and poverty plagued the population, the borough decided to introduce the watch and clock making industry and founded the “Société d’Horlogerie à Waldenburg”(Waldenburg clock and watch making company).
The company, privatised and taken over by the young merchant Gédéon Thommen in 1859 and managed under the name of “Gédéon Thommen – watch makers”, introduced the “interchangeable components system, which consisted in the interchangeability of individual watch components, was groundbreaking, and made it possible to begin series production.
The REVUE brand started in 1905, and built watches with their own production machines according to modern methods and surprised the industry experts more than once with innovations, which marked their epoch:
- the self-compensating Nivarox balance spring,
- the timing machine for watch timing,
- and the REVUE-SPORT wristwatches meeting the toughest demands for the first time.
