Since 1865, Reuge manufactures traditional music boxes in the Swiss mountains – a carefully composed mechanical music movement housed in an elegant wooden box with or without wood-inlay.
Founded in 1865 in Sainte-Croix, the story of REUGE began with the production of pocket watches fitted with musical movements. Due to its unique know-how, REUGE is the only company in the world capable of perpetuating the prestigious manufacturing of luxury mechanical music boxes, having mastered the complex art of transcribing piano music, with up to 6 or 7 octaves, into a miniature mechanical piano containing either 36, 72 or 144 notes. Through its unparalleled expertise and highly complex movements, comparable to major horological complications, REUGE music boxes boasts an assortment of singing birds and musical watches with or without automaton.
At the dawn of the 21st century, through its constant quest for excellence, REUGE music boxes have become the ultimate expression of traditional mechanical musical instruments allied with new technologies. Its future is represented by a combination of strengths. As the guardian of tradition for classically aesthetic music boxes, REUGE now looks to the future by developing and fusing cutting-edge technology into its creations, bringing new perspectives to its music boxes. To achieve its objectives, REUGE has redefined its products offering a completely redesigned line with enhanced sound and cases that have become veritable playgrounds for creative expression. If the excellence of our products is assured by maintaining the traditional craft at the heart of every one of our creations, it is through the emergence of technologically advanced projects that our creations then become highly functional objects of art and design.
