About Cortebert Watches
Vintage style, effortless cool, timeless elegance, exciting innovation, precision timekeeping: Have it all with Cortebert watches. The brand has a strong heritage dating back to 1790, when Abraham-Louis Juillard opened a small watchmaking store in Cortebert in Switzerland, although the brand name itself remained unregistered until 1855. Cortebert even produced calibers for other big-name brands such as Rolex. Unfortunately, production of Cortebert timepieces ceased in the 1970s; but it is still possible for collectors and enthusiasts to find a wide selection of classic watches among the vast inventory on eBay. Discover the beauty and elegance of a vintage Cortebert pocket watch or wristwatch. One of the most famous Cortebert watches is the jump-hour watch, first developed as a wristwatch in the early 1920s. This style of watch features an aperture displaying a digit for the current hour. As the hand passes 12 o'clock on the dial, the digit in the aperture jumps to the next hour. This setup requires a complex rotating disk system within the movement that is indicative of the Cortebert attention to quality and innovation.
