History From 1853 to the present day, Tissot has continually surprised and delighted customers with its product innovation. A relentless pioneering spirit led the company from its foundation in the small Swiss Jura town of Le Locle, to a presence in 150 countries. From its first pocket watch with two time-zones in 1853 to its revolutionary touch-screen technology T-Touch watch, Tissot has presented a series of "firsts" in terms of technology, materials and design – even to the extent of creating watches made of rock, wood and pearl.
From day one, Tissot was also dedicated to taking its innovations to destinations well beyond the Swiss borders. In 1858, the founder's son, Charles-Emile Tissot, left Le Locle for Russia and successfully sold Tissot savonnette pocket watches across this huge and influential empire. International expansion went from strength to strength and Tissot is today the leading producer of the traditional Swiss watch industry in number of units. Being sold by 16,000 Points of Sale across five continents, Tissot products offer a wide selection of watches to suit diverse functional needs and tastes.
History Rado watches are associated with top quality timepieces made from the finest scratchproof materials in the world and has succeeded over a short period in building up a distinctive brand with successful worldwide distribution. The company was founded in 1917 in Switzerland, although it wasn't until the 1960's that the world's first scratchproof watch was made under the name Rado DiaStar. In 1983, Rado joined the elite SMH group, now known as the Swatch Group, the biggest watch conglomerate in the world. Rado watches are unique in every way. While other brands use conventional materials like gold, brass or steel, Rado goes for materials of the future such as hardmetal, sapphire crystal, high-tech ceramics, high-tech lanthanum or high-tech diamond. And this is always in the endeavour to develop design/material combinations that unite in perfect harmony the double functions of the watch as a modern piece of jewelry and a functional timepiece. The basis for this is provided by the mastery of highly developed leading technologies for the manufacture and processing of the hardest materials in the world.It has taken decades for Rado to build up this know-how, which today constitutes the core expertise of its material-technological developments.
History Longines has been based at St Imier, Switzerland, since 1832. Its watchmaking expertise, built up over 175 years, reflects a strong devotion to tradition, elegance and the sporting world: it has generations of experience as the official timekeeper at world championships and as a partner of international sports federations. Longines is a member of The Swatch Group S.A., the world’s leading manufacturer of watches and associated products. With an excellent reputation for creating refined timepieces, the brand, whose emblem is the winged hourglass, is now established in more than 130 countries.In 1832, Auguste Agassiz entered the world of watchmaking by establishing a partnership with a watchmaking counter in Saint-Imier. Before long, he quickly took control of the enterprise and renamed it “Agassiz & compagnie”. At the time, the company assembled watches according to the “etablissage” method, with people working at home, and developed trade links that enabled the company to sell its timepieces around the world, particularly in North America. In the 1850s, Ernest Francillon, a nephew of Agassiz, took over the management of the reputed company and looked for ways to improve the traditional manufacturing methods used in local watchmaking. His idea was to group the different operations involved in the finalisation of timepieces together in one factory, where he would use mechanical production methods to assemble and finish complete watches. To bring this project to fruition, he purchased two adjoining plots of land on the right bank of the river Suze in the Saint-Imier valley in 1866. This area of land was called “Les Longines.” To help him develop the machines he needed to perfect the watchmaking processes, Ernest Francillon employed a young relative, an engineer named Jacques David. In the 1870s, the industrial approach that Francillon had chosen proved highly successful and the factory continued to grow until the first third of the 20th century. By 1911, the Longines factory employed more than 1,100 people and its watches were being distributed around the world.

History Pierre Balmain was one of the outstanding figures of Parisian haute couture. He dressed exceptional women who left their mark on their era, including queens, princesses, movie stars and well known names in the theatre.Through his art he helped to spread the idea of luxury a la franchise right across the world. As a great lover of art he was continually inspired by the oldest and most Elaborate styles of art in the world - Arab and Mandarin art in particular, which both featured oversize, stylised and realistic images of flowers and plants. The arabesque motif was the core of what inspired the creative genius that Pierre Balmain was. Through all his collections he included this motif in the lace, embroidery and trimmings of his exquisite dresses and coats.When we were given the delicate task of creating and developing Montres Pierre Balmain in 1937, it was clear that the design of our timepieces had to centre around the famous arabesque motif and the sense of elegance if the models were to be worthy of this prestigious name. And thus, year after year, collection after collection, the dials with the arabesque motif have always been at the heart of Montres Pierre Balmain's creations.As apostles of the inspiration of the haute couture genius that was Pierre Balmain, through the watches that bear his name, it is our duty to perpetuate his name by maintaining his original inspiration, the arabesque motif and the sense of elegance. We take the liberty of creating bold shapes and adapting cutting-edge watchmaking technology to continually surprise and seduce our customers through our regular new collections. In this way we in turn hope to pass on the torch of this incredible instigator of elegance and style.

History : 1888: Founding of the factory at Grenchen, Switzerland. Reliability, precision, innovation: the Kurth Brothers' fundamental principles to guide the Swiss company's early years. The watchmaking firm rapidly climbs to an important rank in the international watchmaking world. Third Millennium: Certina reasserts its ambitious trajectory by strengthening its commitment to international motor-sports. The sportwatch brand displays brilliant creative impulse through inspired new collections that gain wide public success. At Certina, the past and present share common denominators, of uncompromising excellence and clever audacity. Since its creation, the spirit of the brand has stood at the apex of technological evolution, through the use of the finest components and materials: titanium, 316L stainless steel, sapphire crystal and world-famous Swiss Made ETA movements. As leader in the sportwatch segment between CHF 300.00 and CHF 2,000.00, Certina has always championed the best quality at an affordable price. From early on, the brand showed a keen interest in sports, boosted by the launch of its Double Security concept in 1959, raising water and shock resistance to new levels. Tested during a number of extreme international expeditions, Certina DS timepieces successfully withstood the most challenging conditions. Through the decades, Certina has shown great dynamism and linked its name to those of legendary champions such as Muhammad Ali, Mike Doohan, Alex Criville, Colin McRae, Petter Solberg, Sete Gibernau, Timo Glock, Robert Kubica and last but not least, Hollywood's famous Swiss-born stuntman, Oliver Keller. In 2001, Certina became a sponsor to the Swiss 125cc GP motorcycle rider Thomas Luthi, who went on to win the 2005 World Championship. The Swiss watchmaking brand then decided to take a bold step into prestigious Formula 1 and became Official Partner to the Sauber Petronas F1 team. The following year, Certina introduced its new ambassador, Polish-born Robert Kubica, team driver with the BMW Sauber F1 Team. The partnership was a big success. In 2008, Kubica and Heidfeld claimed the team's first F1 race win ever, a one-two finish at the Montreal Grand Prix. Today, Certina's motorsport commitment remains faithful to fellow-Swiss Peter Sauber and the Sauber F1 Team. In 2010, Certina signed on Fabio Leimer, a talented Swiss driver in the GP2 series, and since 2011, the company is a partner of the affable Norwegian star and most successful biathlete in sporting history Ole Einar Bjorndalen. Indeed, in watchmaking as in sport, passion and extreme demands live side by side, in a dynamic environment without compromise, and where talent, drive and technology are essential for achieving the best results. True to its philosophy, Certina has always shown outstanding aesthetic innovation and continues to bring deep creative talent to its sporty timepieces. In design tendencies from extreme sport to classical or delightfully elegant themes, its collections continue to express a great mastery of time, keeping with today's most cutting-edge active lifestyles.

History : The Swiss Army is one of the strongest in Europe. It is a tough, well-trained professional fighting force so formidable that it has kept the country from being invaded through two World Wars. Every able-bodied Swiss male is required to serve and remains in the army as a reservist until age 50. As a condition of preparedness, each soldier is provided with the most advanced technology and simplest – a folding pocketknife. It dates back to 1886 when the Swiss Army decided to equip every soldier with a regulation single-blade folding knife. In 1889, a new rifle was introduced. To disassemble the rifle, a screwdriver was needed. So a decision was made to create a multi-purpose tool incorporating a knife, screwdriver, reamer and can-opener – The Swiss Army Knife. At that time, the cutlery industry in Switzerland was well established but incapable of mass production. So the knives were made in Solingen, Germany. However, a Swiss cutler soon established a knife manufacturing company, today Victorinox, and began to make army knives.Shortly after in 1893 at Courtetelle in the Delemont valley, the second industrial cutlery manufacturer of Switzerland, Paul Boechat & Cie – and the future Wenger – received a contract from the Swiss Army to produce knives. In 1895, a group of entrepreneurs from Delemont bought Boechat and built a new plant at Courtetelle. About two years later, Theodore Wenger was hired to be its General Manager. The son of a pastor, Theodore Wenger was a minister who had served in the USA. He decided this calling was not for him and his Swiss wife was homesick, so he returned to Switzerland. There he learned the world of business in his father-in-law’s cloth trade. After a few years, he applied for a job at Courtetelle. One of Wenger’s first acts was to acquire a manufacturer of spoons and forks, which he moved to a rented factory in Delemont. Then in 1900, he built a new 18,000 square foot facility there. Both the utensil operations and the Courtetelle cutlery production were incorporated into the new plant now called Fabrique Suisse de Courtetelle at Services. A few years later, Wenger acquired Fabrique Suisse, renamed it Wenger et Cie. and shepherded its growth for the next forty years. The Compromise of 1908: The company from which Wenger emerged had been a supplier to the Swiss Army as early as 1893, and its sister-company, Victorinox, since 1890. Wenger is in the French-speaking Jura region and its competitor is in the German-speaking canton of Schwyz. To avoid friction between the two cantons, the Swiss Government decided in 1908 to use each supplier for half of its requirements. So Victorinox can lay claim to being the “original”, Wenger can state its Swiss Army Knives are “genuine”. In any case, both have been manufacturing Swiss Army Knives for over 100 years and both must meet identical specifications defined by the Swiss Army.

History : Candino was founded in 1947 by Adolf Flury-Hug, who opened a watch-making studio in the annex of his family home in Herbetswil in the Swiss canton of Solothurn. Even today, the original workshop proudly remains standing beside the company's ultra-modern factory inaugurated in 1989.

The Festina Group was founded 30 years ago by entrepreneur Miguel Rodriguez. The group's central head office is in Barcelona and there are subsidiaries in 9 countries. The group includes the following brands: Festina, Lotus, Jaguar, Candino et Calypso. More than 3000 people work in the group worldwide, selling more than 4,5 million watches a year in 65 countries.
