The history of Union Horlogère is like a historical mirror of the watch industry. By 1890, the company established itself in the watchmaking city of Bienne and in 1917 was located Rue de lUnion. UNION HORLOGERE rapidly developed its own movements. The basic movements were made in Geneva, and the watches were then completed in BIENNE. Already in 1890, the name UNION HORLOGERE BIENNE - GENEVA decorated the dials of a lot of pocket watches.
In 1901, the watch brand was registered under this name as a company. Subsidiaries were opened in Paris and New York. A large network of distributors was developed in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and in many countries of the East and West.UNION HORLOGERE became one of the largest producers of pocket watches at that time. The brand gained a reputation due to its silver and gold model watches. Apart from the pocket watches for men, various models for women were produced. During this period, wristwatches were just starting to appear, UNION HORLOGERE were already taking a creative role in this evolution.
