Abraham-Louis Juillard opened his small watchmaking store in Cortébert village in Switzerland in 1790. This date is commonly used as the date of founding although the Cortébert brand name was not registered until 1855 using the bottony cross as a logo.

Cortébert Turkish Railroad watch, Cortébert went on to being one of the most desirable premium watchmakers, appreciated for their extensive range of own movements. Cortébert became very well known for their railroad watches. They supplied both the Turkish railroad system and the Italian railroad system, as well as a number of street car systems throughout Europe. 

In the 1927, at the request of Mussolini, Cortébert started distributing their watches in Italy under the Perseo brand name. It is under this name that they were used by the Italian railway system. Cortebert distributed their Italian railroad watches through the Perseo brand as the fascist Italy rejected foreign brand names. 

In the early 1920s, Cortébert was approached by Soviet Russia for assistance in establishing a watch industry in Russia. Russia purchased machinery and technical advice from Cortébert, and manufactured the Cortébert 616 pocket watch movement in Russia as the "Molnija". Production of this movement continued in Russia until early 2014 when production ceased. 

By 1944 Cortébert had a lineup consisting of 20 different calibers and a range of special railway watches that became synonymous with the marque. 

Perseo continued to be used by the Italian railway system after World War II and became well regarded by the Italian public. To this day, Perseo continues their relationship with the Italian Railroad System. 


In the early 1970s Cortébert suffered deeply from the quartz revolution sweeping the world watch industry. The representatives of Cortebert in Italy bought the Perseo brand name from Cortebert and continue today as an entirely independent company. 

This is a beauty and its complicate dial and movement.  Defiantly a collector watch given it is the rarest of this model, 18k yellow gold version is impossible to find, you can see the gold fill, the has the have the marking on the movement wheel, I have not seen on other models.
