Michel Herbelin - a family business with a long tradition
The brand was created out of pure passion for watches by Michel Herbelin. At the beginning, young Michel was discouraged by his parents to get involved in the watch industry. His parents wanted him to take over the family business, but Michel had already been interested in watches. He decided to study watchmaking and work in a local watch factory to improve his skills and knowledge in this area. Finally, in 1947, he founded his own company (it was his dream since childhood). The brand as well as its first watches are called IMPEC. This term comes from the word "impeccable", which most accurately described the brand's products. After some years, the brand gained a lot of recognition. In 1965, the brand changed its name and has since been known simply as Michel Herbelin. Michel Herbelin founded the company and now his sons continue the tradition and take care of the brand. It’s currently the third generation to run the business.
Secrets of Michel Herbelin watches
The quartz revolution started in the 1970s and caused many family businesses to collapse. At that time, the Michel Herbelin brand wanted to prove that it was tradition combined with unconventional design that made its watches unique. All of Michel Herbelin watches are designed, assembled by hand and thoroughly inspected in the brand’s workshops. The long-standing tradition of craftsmanship, attention to the quality of design and finishing in the spirit of French elegance are the most important characteristics of the brand. In fact, these are the values that continue to guide the brand today.
