In 1888, the talented young watchmakers named Barbezieux  & Baillot founded a watch factory under the same name in the city of Le Locle (Switzerland).

They immediately starting producing quality watches {pocket} often with complications & gathered a strong rep; very quickly

They invented the “quiet regulator” & later won a Gold medal at the Exposition Universelle Paris in 1900 for the watch.
Le Phare watches gathered a strong following & a hint of financial success ahead.

Winning 3 gold medals in the late 19thC ,   1889 at the Great Universal Exhibition in Paris,   2} 1896 at the National Exhibition in Geneva and
3} 1906
In 1897 they had made a “quiet regulator”  which was a significant invention as regulators at that stage were quite noisy watches. With the medals being awarded for their ‘quiet reg;’ & other models.

The company specialised in watches with complications  ~ wristwatches of sophisticated design, such as chronographs , watches with a triple date capability etc.
They again expanded and moved from Le Locle to La Chaux-de-Fonds ,  home to many major watch companies.
