Swiss watch brand Lebois & Co today has launched a Kickstarter crowd funding program to raise funds for the ‘3rd Re-launch Edition’ of their Avantgarde Date – the first model in the collection.
About Lebois & Co
Lebois & Co watch brand was founded in 1934 by Raymond Dodane from the third generation of the Dodane watchmaker family in order to create aesthetic and affordable Luxury Swiss timepieces.
After World War II the brand Lebois & Co was handed over to Italian importers who outsource production to Dodane as well as other Swiss watch manufacturers. With its new owners Lebois & Co’s primary market was Italy but the brand was also well established in the rest of Europe.
In 1972, Lebois & Co ceased trading 40 years after it was founded, the original Lebois & Co stopped producing watches and the brand ceases to exist. Despite the disappearance of Lebois & Co the brand is still known today and popular with watch collectors all over the world. In 2014, the brand was re-launched, exactly eighty years after the original company was founded.
