History of Faberge watches
Born in 1846, Peter Carl Fabergé was a jeweler and goldsmith to the great Russian Imperial Court, creating exquisite jewels and treasures, including the famous Imperial Easter Eggs. With a reputation known all over the world, the success of the Fabergé name came to an abrupt end in 1917 when the workshops were seized during the Russian Revolution. The Fabergé family fled Russia and lost the right to their company name for many years.
It wasn’t until 2007 that the family was finally reunited with the Fabergé name, marking the perfect opportunity to revitalise the original philosophy of Peter Carl Fabergé. In keeping with the original values of his first designs, Fabergé now creates stunning jewellery and watches that pay tribute to the creative vision of its founder.
Fabergé watches continue the traditions of Peter Carl Fabergé by combining the finest materials, techniques and components. The watch designs aim to fuse the past and the present of the company, highlighting the artistry and craftsmanship of handmade watches. Each collection of Fabergé watches represents a different aspect of the company’s history. The understated luxury of the Alexei watch blends the softness and modernity of the original Fabergé creations.The elegantly sporty Agathon watch celebrates Fabergé’s famous art of enameling and the ingenuity of its watchmaking. Finally, the Anastasia watch captures the charm of the ladies of the Russian Imperial Court, inspired by their embroidered gowns and sumptuous jewels. Vibrant colours are often seen throughout the collection of Fabergé watches, inspired by Peter Carl Fabergé’s captivating use of coloured gemstones
