Driva was been founded in 1924 by the family Hirsch, in Chaux-de-Fonds (Swiss). The family Hirsch was an important family of the Swiss matchmaking industry since 1875, and operated the company until 1929 when the world depression caused its bankruptcy.

In 1938 the brand was revived  in Geneva and by the 1940/50's, it had an important factory in Geneva with an annual production of several hundreds of thousands of pieces.

Driva Watch Co. in Geneva was the first manufacturer producing quarter repeating wristwatches in series. The watches were mainly cased in stainless steel, fitted with rectangular-shaped movements surrounded by a gong onto which the quarters were stroked twice and the hours once by means of one hammer.

Production was also geared to "private label" manufacturing for some of the biggest American brands; including Sears and Roebucks and their "TRADITION" watch brand.
