Topic Overview

Swissness 2017

Case Assembly Ronda Time Center

Basically, the 60% rule will come into force. This relates to the watch as a whole – not including the bracelet – and comprises the production costs together with the execution of an essential production step in Switzerland. The respective steps for Swiss Made watch cases are stamping, processing and polishing. In addition, assembly and final quality control must also be carried out in Switzerland. Even under these circumstances, at least 60% of the production costs must be incurred in Switzerland.

From January 2017, you can have your cases, including glasses, pipes and pushers assembled by the Ronda Time CenterWe also offer filling or glueing of fashionstones. Naturally, this assembly will be subject to a standardized final quality control, including a water-resistance test.
