Edouard Juvet (1820-1883) was one of the most eminent makers working for the Chinese Market. He opened his workshop in Buttes in 1842 and moved to Fleurier in 1844.
Edouard's sons Ami-Louis and Léo worked in the family's firm in Shanghai where they were only rivalled by the Bovets. The firm opened branches in Tien-tsin and Saigon and prospered to such an extent that Léo wrote "Our watches sell like salt".
In 1873, Edouard Juvet registered a trademark in Chinese characters which was used for all their products. After his death in 1883, Léo took over the management of the company.
