Emile Chouriet History
Jean Depéry, the founder of the Emile Chouriet manufacture, also had a dream. Descending from a family involved in the watchmaking industry in Geneva since the 17th century, after studies in microengineering and a successful career of his own in the conception and production of watch components, in 1998 he decided to take the next step and create his own timepieces. He named the company after Emile Chouriet, a gifted 17th century watchmaker for whom his own ancestor, François Dagobert Depéry, had produced components. The name is a testimony to Jean Depéry’s vision: a tribute to the collaboration between his ancestor and the master watchmaker, it underlines the continued importance of the union of talents and expertise in the field of luxury timekeeping.
In 2012, as we opened a new factory in Meyrin and reinforced our team of talented craftsmen and professionals, the founder’s daughters, Marion and Sophie, both joined the company as marketing manager and as art director respectively, bringing a breath of fresh air. Since then, the wings of our original design have mutated into waves, butterflies, petals of flowers or solar rays, and each new timepiece helps us forge our identity at the same time as it is inspired by it, enriching a catalogue that combines overall coherence and constant innovation.
To manufacture exceptional watches, Emile Chouriet harvests what history has to offer and puts this knowledge to work within an alliance of the best craftsmanship available today. Drawing from the heritage of excellence and elegance of the Swiss tradition to bring it into new territory, the Emile Chouriet manufacture quickly became a successful brand, marking a new step in the history of the founding family.
