THE ORIGINS

Three generations and over 100 years of dedication to the craft demonstrate the wisdom of the path taken by TOUS.

The origins of TOUS date back to 1920, when the young apprentice Salvador Tous Blavi started out in the watchmaking business.

In 1930, he moved to Manresa (Barcelona) and opened his own establishment, where he was joined in 1953 by his son, Salvador Tous Ponsa,who, with his future wife Rosa Oriol and their four daughters, transformed the business into what we know it as today.
