Whether representing traditional or contemporary watchmaking, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie is pleased to announce the arrival of two new partner-brands: Louis Moinet and Rebellion Timepieces. In joining the Foundation, they show their support of its action to promote the culture of watchmaking through training, information and by showcasing watchmaking excellence worldwide.
