Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud

Master watchmaker and chronometer-maker Ferdinand Berthoud made an indelible imprint on history with his fabulous creations, including the 18th century Marine Clocks that guided the vessels of the King of France towards new horizons. Today, while our purpose lies first and foremost in paying tribute to this exceptional artisan and his incredibly destiny, we also aim to exalt the very essence and the inherent fascination of the watchmaking art.

Our timepieces are direct heirs to the work of Ferdinand Berthoud. They are infused with the same ethos of innovation and precision, reinterpreted from a contemporary standpoint. FERDINAND BERTHOUD chronometers are a perpetual call to explore new horizons.

His passion for the preservation of watchmaking heritage has propelled Ferdinand Berthoud to new heights. In 2019, the Chronometer FB 1 family added two ultra-limited editions celebrating decorations of the finest watchmaking traditions.
