The Manufacture traces its origins to the Enlightenment, when the philosopher and brilliant entrepreneur Voltaire opened his watchmaking workshop near Geneva. Almost 250 years later, Manufacture Royale takes the liberty to play with its founder's captivating past, values and horological creation to instil passion and spirit into its timepieces. Creative freedom, the need to show there is more than one way to view the world, the determination this implies, and the courage to take a nonconformist stance forge the way ahead. Its movements are developed and made in its workshops, in the Swiss Jura. The skills and talent of master watchmakers and craftsmen are the guarantee of mechanical excellence. Manufacture Royale timepieces contain an original interpretation of watchmaking, and find their balance in daring and beauty, tradition and modernity, passion and humility.
