With the passage of the business to his son, Paul-Louis, the tradition of creating good quality and reliable watches continued manly thanks to the move of the production factories in the capital of watchmaking, Geneva. Thus it was that Chopard started specializing in the production of real jewel-watches, slowly earning a first-class place.
