FLORA WATCHES SINCE 1848, THE SONS OF PAUL JOBIN & CIE. The Jobin family is one of the oldest families of watchmakers in the jura. There is a Louis Jobin in 1756, a complete watchmaker, a Pierre Ignace Polycarpe Jobin maker of pinions, his son Charles Constantin a complete watchmaker, as well as a Pierre Nicolas Jobin maker of gold and silver boxes at the beginning of the 19th century.Their production was in demand. They were all installed in the Franches Montagnes and working for establishments in La Chaux de Fonds and Le Locle. In 1848, the three brothers Jean, Joseph Constant and Augustin Jobin joined forces to found a watchmaking factory in Les Bois. Shortly after, the Jobin brothers moved their business to Porrentruy. The factory had several addresses and they had a factory built in 1947. This factory was equipped with the latest technical improvements, and represented the crowning achievement of an entire dynasty of craftsmen. This house marketed these watches under the brands: Flora since 1894, Oranje, Sillon, Cypar, Cyp, Ajax and Alac. In 1948, the house "Les fils de Paul Jobin & Cie Montres Flora" celebrated its centenary. The house sells its products all over the world.

Like many watch factories at this time, the brand struggled with the arrival of Asian quartz watches in the early 1970s.
