Founded by a small group of French engineers in 1919, JAZ recognized the need for well-designed and stylish alarm clocks and decorative timepieces. In 1957, JAZ had sold its 20 millionth clock, and were producing more than a million timepieces each year making it the largest clock manufacturer in France, and continues under the same name, even today.
