Léonard Frédéric Nardin (* 1792) was the first watchmaker of the family. His son Ulysse (1823-1876) founded a watch factory in Le Locle, Switzerland in 1846. After the sudden death of its founder, it specialised, among others, in ship chronometers under the not even 20-year-old son Paul David. It received many awards for them.
