The birth of the brand
Jean-Jérôme Marteau, 30 years old, knew how to apply the family's knowledge of fine jewelry to the art of watch making, and thus gained endless expertise serving VIPs and rayais. The story began with a gem that was associated to a watch movement, a precious timepiece with a timeless esthetic.
Singular in its originality, with the perfect harmony of the movement and the center stone, the DE TOURNEMIRE watch is a first in the history of luxury Swiss watch making.
Family savoir-faire at the service of high jewelry
The brand roots are closely associated with the identity of its founders, Jean-Jérôme and Jean-Gabriel Marteau. Over the years, in the shadow of Place Vendôme where the most prestigious jewelers are found, this bold, talented family created breathtaking pieces. lt was a marriage of technical prowess and rare gems, selected with the utmost attention to detail.
After 3 generations and 60 years of experience with fine jewelry, the Marteau family's unique knowhow makes it a discreet signature brand among connaisseurs. Distributed around the world, sets of precious jewelry, tiaras, mystery set pillboxes and small clocks are the ultimate achievement of years of expertise in high end jewelry.
