Frères Rochat

The Rochat Brothers set themselves apart from their contemporaries by the sophistication of their birds’ movements and the careful assembly of cams, thanks to which sudden melody interruptions are no longer an issue. Famous around the world for the quality and architecture of their movements, the Rochat Brothers succeed in the amazing feat of making their birds chirp well-known musical pieces. Containing a unique set of Grand Complications, the architecture of their jewels is likened to that of a great artist’s canvas and belonged to the market of inaccessible luxury. In 1813, they open a shop at rue de Coutance in Geneva, marking the beginning of a supremacy which would last until the mid 19th century. Almost hundred of their masterpieces were exported across the world.
