Instruments & Mesures du Temps: born of a passion

For a company launched barely five years ago, the slogan "Watchmakers + Since Always" could be considered yet another impertinence in a branch that sees more than its share. As with any promotional claim, there is undoubtedly an element of exaggeration, of wishful thinking even, but also a sound reality.
