What are the alternatives?

There are several possible lines of action to reduce the negative environmental impact of extracting precious materials. One solution would be for buyers to form a pressure group and request that producers provide guarantees. In 2008, the Swiss watch industry used 36 tonnes of gold or 1% of global consumption. This could be enough to put pressure on the market.

The future

The current economic crisis clearly implies spending cuts in non-essential or secondary sectors. Regrettably, the environment is often considered as such. However, not every Fine Watch brand is feeling the effects of recession to the same degree. In this context, a company could be well-advised to manage its environmental impact, given the repercussions this can have on its image. Unauthorised constructions, accidental pollution due to non-respect of safety regulations or the increased number of commuters in the Arc Jurassien regions are all detrimental to a company’s reputation. Note too that proper environmental management also saves money through optimised use of resources and routine recycling.

David Walter Clocks: In Resonance

In the age of the wristwatch, many scoff at the mechanical clock and don’t deign to consider owning one. Such snobbery would be a mistake, particularly because you would miss the chance to relish the mechanical artistry performed by David Walter.

The Innovative Fire of De Grisogono

Fawaz Gruosi isn’t the type of man to follow trends. No, that wouldn’t hold the interest of this creative firebrand. When Gruosi shows up to play, he arrives with his own rules for the game.
