The House of Gubelin is a Swiss family-owned company, known for its exquisite high-end jewellery, gemstone expertise, and as purveyors of some of today’s most sought-after luxury watch brands. Their storied history dates back to 1854, when the brand’s first shop was opened in Lucerne by Jakob Breitschmid and his apprentice Eduard Jakob Gubelin (who married his master’s daughter, Bertha Sophia, in 1886).

During the 1920s, Gubelin began to make its own jewellery pieces as well as a wide range of watches for its clientele. During this time, it also set up a gemmological laboratory that would test the stones that its jewellers used and be sure of their authenticity.

As a result, they became renowned for the quality and craftsmanship of their work. Their pieces are considered to be some of the finest in the world and are highly collectible.

They still hold true to their ethos of being a family-owned and operated business, with Gubelin’s headquarters in Geneva being run by the sixth generation of the Gubelin family. They also offer excellent customer service and a warm, homely atmosphere that makes shopping for their beautiful pieces an experience that can’t be missed.

The family-owned Swiss House of Gubelin has been a major purveyor of some of today’s most desirable luxury watches since 1854. Located in Lucerne Switzerland, the company is still led by the same family, which continues to maintain its traditional values and ethos.

One of the most prestigious watch and jewellery companies in the world, Gubelin is known for its superior quality pieces as well as for its unique designs. The brand has a rich history that dates back to 1854 when Jakob Josef Mauritz Breitschmid opened a small watch shop in Lucerne, Switzerland.

Throughout its 160 years of operation, the company has remained family-owned and is now run by the sixth generation. They are a highly experienced company that is known for their incredible customer service and can help you select the perfect piece to fit your taste.

From a floating turtle mystery clock to a diamond encrusted dress watch, there are a number of interesting Gubelin watches available on 1stDibs. These items have been made with extraordinary care and can add a distinctive look to your ensemble.

A particularly impressive example of this Swiss jeweler’s work is this 1930s ‘Deco’ style watch with a striking 18K yellow gold case and a stunning matt champagne dial that changes from a golden yellow to a more pallid champagne depending on the light. It features a good quality 17 jewel manual wind movement, signed on the main bridge with the ‘Gubelin’ name and designation as well as to the inside of the case-back with the ’18K gold’ designation.

Another example of this respected Swiss maker’s skill is this very fine vintage square chronograph, in white gold. This piece is an unusual design in that it wears significantly larger than its size suggests due to the square shape of the case. The white dial is in excellent condition, showing only very minor signs of age and wear including some slight discoloration to the edges.

This beautiful Gubelin watch is a very special piece that will make a very nice addition to any collection, or even as a stand-alone gift for a watch lover. It is very clean, and comes with an original Gubelin bracelet and a box.
