CORTEBERT | VINTAGE BLUE-TRAIN EDITION NOS
A very original and rare vintage watch from Switzerland, 1965
The Cortébert from the Blue Train edition offered here is a vintage at its best and was made in Switzerland in the 1960s. As one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world, this model is rare, as the production of the originally world-famous manufacturer was discontinued during the so-called quartz crisis of the 1970s. The movement comes from the company's own manufacture and consists of a steel monoblock. The condition is optically and technically very good.
Founded in 1790, Cortébert is one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world. In the course of its company's history, the manufacture has produced its own movements and has also supplied other luxury watch manufacturers such as Rolex and IWC worldwide. For example, the Rolex-made Panerai watches with references 3646, 6152, 6154 and 6152/1 were made with Cortébert calibers. The quartz crisis in the 70s put an end to the activities of this previously successful and highly respected manufacturer.
In 1790 Abraham-Louis Juillard founded the company in his Swiss village of Cortébert in 1790. Later the clover-leaf cross was added to the clock face as a logo. The clocks with their own movements were known all over the world, especially the railway clocks for Italy and Turkey.
In the 1920s, at Mussolini's request, Cortébert began distribution in Italy under the Perseo brand. These clocks are still used in Italy to this day. In the so-called quartz crisis in the early 1970s, the Italian representatives bought the Perseo brand from Cortébert and are still working as an independent company today.
