More on Roma

A timepiece is not only a functional tool but also a reminder of history, innovation, and beauty. Schwarz Etienne encapsulates this very idea; it is ingrained in their ideology, in their identity, and, of course, in their classically styled Roma Collection.

About Schwarz Etienne Roma Watches

The Schwarz Etienne Roma collection are high horology dress watches with great attention to detail, dial creation, and movement design
The collection offers two different sizes, multiple complications, and various dial layouts; despite this, there is one constant across the collection: the small second complication at 6 o'clock, which recalls the classic timepieces and pocket watches of yesteryear. The watches themselves are made entirely in-house in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

Schwarz Etienne Roma History

For over a century, Schwarz Etienne has blended tradition with a dynamic vision of watchmaking. Founded in 1902 by Paul Arthur Schwarz and Olga Etienne, the company initially crafted mechanical movements for renowned watches like Alpha and Venus. Over time, Schwarz Etienne gained acclaim through partnerships with prestigious names like Caran d'Ache and Chanel, setting the standard for mechanical movements.
In 2007, entrepreneur Raffaello Radicchi ushered in a new era, acquiring the company and continuing the legacy of high horology. Shortly thereafter, the popular Roma line was introduced, highlighting a classical vision with its signature small seconds complication and hand guilloché dials made by les Ateliers Kari Voutilainen.
