Established in Paris, Obrey, the family owned boutique watch maker has been creating exceptional timepieces made in solid silver since 1965.
Obrey was founded in 1951 by Émile and June Obrey in Paris. The historical boutique is still located rue Tronchet in Paris. Since the very beginning, Obrey decided to create his own watch brand instead of selling existing brands. Émile Obrey was confident in his skills and he developed a whole new line of watches.
In 1965, with talented designers, Obrey created a new line of watches made in solid silver. This was an innovation in the industry because very few brands were using solid silver for their watches. Obrey’s products became very successful at this time because the products were original and the design was unique. Obrey is still known for this collection and continue to produce watches in solid silver, the case and the bracelet.
In 1970s, the company became international by partnering with distributors in the US with famous department stores/specialist stores like Bergdorf Goodman. Obrey also developed its activities in Germany and Japan. The company is still very active in Japan today. Japanese customers represent a large part of its customer base.
Since the 1980s, Émile and June’s son, Mr Patrick Obrey is the manager of the company. Obrey has always been administered by the Obrey family.
The Obrey watches are made in solid silver and handmade and available for both men and women. As Obrey focus more on the design than the mechanism, they prefer Quartz movement for their timepieces which is more reliable and easier to maintain than mechanical movements.
