On time, ahead of its time: the House of Chopard
Louis-Ulysse Chopard was only twenty-four years old when he founded one of the most important watch manufacturers of the nineteenth century. He set up his company in Sonvilier, Switzerland. Local farmers assembled the watches to supplement their meager incomes. Chopard quickly met the expectations of its customers with its reliable, ultra-thin, high-precision pocket watches for every day use. Among the most prestigious were the "Tir Fédéral", the Swiss railway company and Tsar Nicholas II. In 1937, the company moved to Geneva, a major business location. From its foundation until 1943, the company was passed on from generation to generation in the family. The post-war period saw the decline of the company. In the 1960s, the Scheufele family succeeded the Chopard family. Karl Scheufele III brought the House out of its oblivion and restored its international prestige. Twenty years later, Caroline Scheufele forged the Chopard identity by opening up the world of fine jewelry.
