    Schwarz Etienne was established in the city

    of La Chaux-de-Fonds during the Golden

    Age of Swiss watchmaking. Paul Arthur

    Schwarz and his wife Olga Etienne, founders

    of the brand in 1902, created what has

    become a forerunner of the watch industry.

    The unique identity of La Chaux-de-Fonds,

    a city built by and for the watchmaking

    industry, was recently recognized when it

    achieved UNESCO World Heritage status.

    The growing reputation that Schwarz

    Etienne has enjoyed overtime has seen the

    company produce watches for prestigious

    brands including Dunhill, Coventry-Jaguar,

    Chanel, Mauboussin, Caran d’Ache, Mellerio

    dits Meller, Waterman and Bally.

    C. Wilhelm & Cie SA, marks the beginning

    of its association with sole shareholder

    Raffaello Radicchi, who took over Schwarz

    Etienne in 2003 and a recent revival

    heralded by the emergence of new markets

    and propelled by a continuous evolution.

    Schwarz Etienne has always been

    revered as a creator and manufacturer

    of high value and innovative

    mechanical timepieces and movements.

    These movements are principally

    intended for the brand’s own

    products and for a specific clientele,

    appreciative of extraordinary feats

    of craft and exceptional design.

    HISTORY | 3

  • LA CHAUX-DE-FONDS

    The La Chaux-de-Fonds collection pays tribute to this unique watchmaking

    town and its master-craftsmen who have created and produced so many

    exceptional watches. Each piece is unique: infused with the spirit of the

    Art Nouveau movement, of which the Neuchâtel mountains have preserved

    many concrete testimonies, it reveals a delightful transparency offering a

    visual journey to the very centre of time.

    Swiss manufacturer Schwarz Etienne

    presents its latest exceptional creation in

    rose gold, in white gold Palladium 210 or

    steel casing: the Tourbillon La Chaux-de-

    Fonds TSE timepieces. Whether housed in

    rose gold, grey or steel casing, their intricate

    and exquisite conception and the masterful

    and careful craft of their watchmakers

    becomes immediately apparent. In the form of

    Irréversible, the timepieces are blessed with

    a mechanical movement with an automatic

    winding mechanism. The tourbillon wheel,

    raised and given prominence at 1 o’clock offers

    a privileged view of this feature by providing a

    genuine sense of depth. Furthermore, the micro-

    rotor, decentred at 9 o’clock, bestows a complexity

    to this exceptional timepiece and an audacity

    through a most ingenious mechanical combination.

    The Tourbillon TSE features a power reserve of

    three and a half days.

    The dials, whether silver or anthracite-esque,

    possess a grained flange – a recognisable trademark

    of Schwarz Etienne. Designed to be both legible

    and structured, these dials live in harmony with the

    motors which drive them. At the same time bringing to

    life three key components – the barrel, micro-rotor and

    the tourbillon. The hours of the dial, stylised in Roman

    numerals, the gold models have applique Roman

    numeral hour makers while the steel version models

    makers are cut out and coated with green superluminova.

    The hand-sewn alligator bracelets, available in shades of

    black, grey or brown seamlessly match the tone of the

    dials and are animated by the vivid colours of their lining.

    of the very few manufacturers

    able to showcase its capability

    of being entirely autonomous

    parts of the assortment. This

    its own, entirely crafted and

    manufactured calibre, reinforces
