Japy Frères & Cie.

The company was founded in 1773 in Montbéliard by Fréderic Japy in the form of a small workshop for a mechanized production of watches. In 1777 it was transferred to Beacuourt, where two years later, about 50 employees were engaged with the production of movements. In 1806 his three sons were integrated into the company's management and Japy became an international business. After his father's death, the movements were signed with Japy Frères & Cie from 1850 onwards. In addition to the manufacture of watches in the course of the years more products were manufactured. Finally, the clock production had to be stopped in the 1930s. Today, however, Japy Frères & Cie produces engines under Renault. (nlu)

at a hammer price between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro the buyer´s premium is 23,80 % (including VAT) for the (partial) amount of 1.000.000,00 Euro and 17,85% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro
