Switzerland “craftsman spirit” The first is a firm commitment. Watch industry before the industrial revolution is the most sophisticated handicraft, Ziranziyuan poor is relying on Swiss firm attachment in the “roof of Europe” on its own to create the pinnacle of industry. Before World War II broke out, 90 percent of the world’s watches are produced in Switzerland. When can the supremacy of the 1970s, at a lower cost, portable, on-time Japanese quartz watch large-scale attack, the traditional Swiss mechanical watch experienced an unprecedented “quartz crisis.” In just 10 years, the production of watches produced in Switzerland in the global market share fell from 43% to 15% of the cliff-style, over 100,000 unemployed watchmakers. At that time, market participants generally agreed that the Swiss watch, especially in the end mechanical watches has come. However, the Swiss watch industry refused to follow the crowd, but rather focus on their own upgrades, stick with “artisan spirit” fine hand-made mechanical watches. After a difficult transition after 20 years, the Swiss watch industry is not only out of the trough, and ushered in unprecedented prosperity.
Switzerland “craftsman spirit” lies in excellence. Swiss luxury watch craftsmen are a part of a part polished. Watchmakers for each part, every procedure, every watch is carefully polished, carefully crafted. Craftsmen eyes, only to manufacture meticulous, quality excellence, diligent pursuit of perfection. For example, a high-quality watch is not only a strong movement, but also a beautiful shell. Watchmakers tend to use the most reasonable way to install movement, the dial to leave enough space to decorate. A seemingly simple dial, but also in the hands of watchmakers become intensive land Jiangxinduju: carving craftsmen able to apply engraving, carving and polishing process on the case and dial, even in fragile movement on exquisite carvings; inlaid jewelry division is committed to select the size of the most appropriate and present the best reflective effect of stones, to set off the work itself blinding light; and enamel craftsmen then use filler-enamel, cloisonné enamel and micro-painted enamel, giving watches fascinating perspective effects and vivid colors.
Switzerland “craftsman spirit” was undoubtedly the most pioneering and innovative core. Innovation and firm attachment without contradiction, innovation is the inevitable result of excellence. For the purposes of the Swiss watchmakers, “only better, not the best” is definitely not an empty slogan. In pursuit of the ultimate experience, artisans carve their products constantly, constantly improve their processes. It is worth mentioning that the history of the world watches recognized as one of the greatest inventions – Tourbillon technology. In 1795, the Swiss watchmaker Louis Breguet invented a delicate exquisite timepiece speeder, which consists of 72 fine component parts, most of which are handmade, weighing not more than 0.3 grams, namely a swan feather or two piece weight parrot feathers. Tourbillon amazing contribution that it can maximize the watches from the influence of gravity, the gravity compensation for travel time accuracy losses. Today, the Swiss watchmakers continue to focus on upgrading innovative watch technology, just in the last 20 years on the development of many extremely complex process, phase, when the two, such as an upgraded version of the tourbillon, Caruso, calendar, months, or even there are Chinese calendar.
