La Chaux-de-Fonds is a small Swiss city that became the centre of the world’s watch making in the past 200 years. The most famous watch museum in the world, the offices of some big watch making companies and the headquarters of the watch manufacture Girard-Perreguax are situated there. The company was founded many years ago in 1791 by Jean-François Bautte. The company received its name when the director Constant Girard decided to get married with the girl whose name was Marie Perregaux. Soon Girard became the director and did a lot to make the manufacture highly successful. Numerous interesting projects appeared while Girard was running the company.
