In the heart of Jura Switzerland and more precisely in L’Abbaye, typical village of the Vallée de Joux where the harsh winters have given birth to great ideas and realizations of time measurement, the Family House CLAUDE MEYLAN maintains and proudly perpetuates its know-how ancestral.
MEYLAN is one of the four historical families founding fine watchmaking: in the middle of the 18th century, Samuel Olivier Meylan and Abraham-Samuel Meylan were introduced to the watchmaking arts in Rolle and Fleurier. Back in Vallée de Joux, Samuel-Olivier Meylan designs and manufactures pocket watches equipped with movements and music discs and, naturally, the passion for movement becomes a family tradition. CLAUDE MEYLAN strengthens its heritage and extends its know-how by “undressing” and decorating each element of the movement.
The Art of the Skeleton is pushed to new horizons. CLAUDE MEYLAN likes to present new shapes and harmonies on bridges, wheels and trains to express a new vision of time while establishing a new art of sculpted pieces.
Generations succeed one another and perpetuate the passion of the movements, the fine watchmaking and the most minute detail.
