An independent Swiss watch manufacturer established in 1998, based in Geneva, the heart of the Swiss watch industry. The company achieved the final step to becoming a fully independent watchmaker with the development of their own in-house designed and developed mechanical movement, with assortments (balance wheel and hairspring); corresponding to the achievement of the lifelong dreams and passions of the founder, Jean Depery.
The varied collections include sports watches inspired by deep-sea diving and mountaineering with the Challenger Deep and Challenger Cliff models; dress watches ranging from under-stated elegance to unadulterated opulence with diamond-studded models in 18K gold cases; and contemporary designs with stunning complications from their Lac Leman and Voie Lactee collections.
The company’s skilled watchmakers have also created exquisite art pieces: A Tourbillon limited to 10 pieces with an in-house designed movement and a Minute Repeater limited to 3 pieces with a refurbished vintage ebauche movement dating from the 30's.
The key distinction of the Emile Chouriet brand is the fact that 60% of the entire collection are ladies’ watches, and the company’s first completely in-house designed and developed automatic movement has been designed for their lady’s collections: The Fair Lady and Soleos collections.
