Tavannes Watch Co. is a Swiss watch company that was founded in 1891 and went defunct in 1966. It was resurrected in 2008 and is located in the town of Tavannes. The company produces watches and watchmaking machinery and has a history of producing innovative timepieces, including the first waterproof wrist watch in 1917, a belt buckle watch for King Edward VIII in 1928, and a driver’s watch in 1930. Tavannes has supplied movements to major brands such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, Dunhill, Hermes, and Cartier. In 1966, production stopped and the brand was acquired by ASUAG under their Chronos Holding company. The Tavannes brand was revived in 2008 and has since released vintage-style versions of its historic models, including the Submarine and Belt watches.
