Rodolphe is a Swiss watch brand, currently owned by Franck Muller's Watchland group.

For many years the designer Rodolphe Cattin had designed watches for renowned companies such as Omega, Tissot, Longines, Breil, Esprit, Caterpillar and others. Under his own label "Rodolphe" Cattin produces watches in Les Bois in the Neuchâtel Jura. They bear his own unmistakable handwriting and predominantly are equipped with mechanical movements made by Dubois Dépraz.

In 2004 the Franck Muller Swiss luxury watch group acquires majority control of the luxury watch and jewelry companies of Rodolphe Cattin. In 2009, disappointed by the insufficient support, Cattin leaves the group. The rights to the trademark remain property of Watchland group.

In October, 2006 Rodolphe wins the prestigious "Watch of the Year" award of the watch magazines Montres Passion and Uhrenwelt with the innovative model Instinct Chrono 180°.
