Where are your watches made?
Most of our watches are made at our factory, in Porrentruy, in the Swiss Jura. The assembly is also carried out on site. these timekeepers are Swiss Made. However, watches from the Frontenac Chronograph & Number 8 Chronograph collections are not entirely from Swiss production. These watches are commercialized under the "Swiss Movement" label.
What does Swiss Made or Swiss Movement on my watch mean?
The Swiss Made indicates that the watch has a minimum Swiss value of 60%. The Swiss Movement ensures that the movement in the watch is produced in Switzerland. The final assembly and controls of a Swiss Movement watch must also be made in Switzerland.
