The Territoire has been forging its reputation as a hotspot of industrialisation since 1777. This is the date when Frédéric Japy moved to Beaucourt and began producing early watches, and machine tools which were more efficient and less expensive. He went on to fully mechanise his production systems for watches, alarm clocks, and clocks. From 1806, Japy started to produce bolts and screws. Around this time he also passed on the baton to the next generation. As a true 18th Century captain of industry, Frédéric Japy still stands out as a forefather of industrialisation.
