About us

We are continuously searching for creations that will capture your imagination. Pierre and Danuta Junod assemble the watches in their atelier in Bienne, Switzerland, in order to perpetuate the highest quality standards for Swiss made watches.

Architects and Designers

Pierre Junod will never forget his first conversation with Massimo Vignelli. The world-famous designer told him with a smile: "Above all, I'd like a watch to be timeless." Shortly after, he drafted this watch together with his wife Lella. They designed a frame that covers the case and expands the glass of the face into a subtly coloured, interchangeable ‘halo’. With a Vignelli watch, you can choose every day between 16 rings of different colours. And since 1994, Pierre Junod continues to develop unique watches with architects and designers like Michael Graves, Richard Meier, and Mario Botta.

Movement and Ecological Materials

We attach great importance to high quality and environment-friendly materials. Our watches are fitted with quartz movements that are made in Switzerland by the manufacturer ETA or Ronda. The premium batteries are Swiss made and last for 34 months at least. Speaking of our batteries, they contain no mercury and are lithium free. All components meet the requirements of the European Union’s RoHS 2 directive on electrical and electronic devices. For the surface of our watches, we use exclusively scratchproof sapphire crystal glass. And we place value on producing the straps as environment-friendly as possible: the tanning takes place without chemical additives and the leather is coloured by using only organic extracts from plants and woods.

Production and Quality

Pierre Junod's watches are Swiss made and assembled in a small atelier in Switzerland. More than 90 percent of the parts – the movement, clock face, hands, steel case, and even the packaging – are produced within walking distance from Bienne.
