In 1900 François Huguenin founded the production of watches under the brand Consul in the Swiss town La - Chaux - de - Fonds, and in 1904 he began exporting products Consul in different directions and soon exports made up 40% of the total turnover of the brand. In 1926 his son Charles Virchaux entered in the company, and in 1934 the latter took the leadership of the company in his hands. In 1953 the company Consul won first prize from the Neuchatel Observatory for its famous chronograph, which was characterized by its accuracy.
In 1969 Consul together with the watch company Perregaux created a holding company, headed by Charles-Edouard Virchaux, grandson of François Huguenin. However, in 1979 the company Consul was acquired by Desco Group. After 17 years of being in this group, the company was bought by a watchmaker - enthusiast in 1998, whose goal was to continue legacy of watch making of the company Consul.
