About Mid-Century

The term “Swiss Made” isn’t just another commodity label for a place of origin, but more importantly a seal of approval and a mark of quality recognised worldwide. Today, more than half of the total of all luxury watches are from Switzerland. In terms of their craftsmanship, sometimes it’s just a subtle difference that distinguishes this group of watch manufacturers from one another. This is also usually why most people don’t make a decision for or against a watch brand based solely on a set of objective criteria but more because of “soft” factors such as the public image that’s connected with a Swiss watch manufacturer.

Even more subjective is the following list of the Top 10 Swiss watch brands. Join us as we take you on a brief trip to the epicentre of mechanical watchmaking. This journey won’t just take us to the watch metropolis Geneva: a city that two of the most famous and renowned brands call home. It will also lead us to the less populated valleys of Switzerland, where there are almost as many watchmakers as there are inhabitants.

10. IWC (Schaffhausen)
9. Breitling (Grenchen)
8. Omega (Biel/Bienne)
7. TAG Heuer (La Chaux-de-Fonds)
6. Zenith (Le Locle)
5. Blancpain (Le Brassus)
4. Jaeger-LeCoultre (Le Sentier)
3. Breguet (L’Orient) – A few kilometres further and not far from the south bank of the Lac De Joux is the tranquil village of L’Orient. Another renowned Swiss watch brand also calls it home here: one that carries the legacy of perhaps the greatest watchmaking genius in history into the present day. We’re talking about Abraham Louis Breguet and the company named after him.
2. Rolex (Geneva) – No list of the best Swiss watch brands can be complete without Rolex and unsurprisingly, our next stop is Lake Geneva. To be more precise: a tranquil suburb in the business and watch metropolis of Geneva.
1. Patek Philippe (Geneva) – When watch aficionados start throwing around four digit numbers, then you might be witnessing a discussion about the different Patek Philippe references. That being said, we’ve made our way to the absolute high end scale of the luxury watch world and going to end our list of the top 10 Swiss watch brands with the most prestigious of them all: Patek Philippe. Its references regularly achieve record sums at the largest auction houses, where one of its watches can trade ownership for a two figure million sum.

Hurray! Our FIDELITY REWARD Program is here and is designed to please you!
