Что связывает фабрику ETA и Hublot, Panerai, IWC и др.? 10 June 2019
Did you know that most Swiss watch manufactories buy movements or spare parts for movements at the ETA factory? For example, TAG Heuer, Breitling, Chopard, IWC, Omega, Panerai, Hublot and other more democratic brands. ETA was formed in 1793 as a result of the merger of several independent factories for the production of mechanisms and spare parts for them. Even with the outbreak of World War II, despite the difficulties, the production of basic mechanisms continued, and ETA became a leader in this field. The price range of manufactured calibers is very large, so the company divided the mechanisms into series, depending on the properties and purpose. Some mechanisms are produced in China, but they are designed for watches of low and medium price categories, as well as in fashion watches. ETA factories are also in Thailand and Malaysia. But they work mainly in local markets. The mechanisms made there are not branded “Swiss Made”, although their quality meets the very high requirements of the company, of course, taking into account the price level.

Since then, the watch has changed many times, as well as individual elements in the watch. And still, they are in the same place, despite the fact that the store has moved to a neighboring street.

Vacheron Constsntin Mecaniques Savage Collection
In Paris, a new unique collection of watches from Vacheron Constantin - Mecaniques Savage was presented. This collection is dedicated to the wild world of animals. On each unique watch model, a wild animal or bird is engraved or painted with enamel. Most watches were sold immediately after the presentation. Usually, Vacheron Constantin does not advertise such novelties. But this time they made a “leak of information” and we can enjoy almost all the copies. More
