The company began as Josue Robert, founded in 1770. The founder worked in the business with his sons, his grandson and son-in-law Louis Courvoisier until his death. In 1781, the company was renamed 'Josue Robert & Fils' and Louis Courvoisier had a share; he was director of the pocket watch division. The pocket watches by Robert & Courvoisier gained an excellent reputation in the early 19th century and were often countersigned with the names of the dealers, such as those of a certain number of Viennese dealers.
