Integrated into the Swatch Group in 2002, Rubattel & Weyermann, based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, is a specialist manufacturer of watch dials. The company’s principal customers are the up market, prestige and luxury brands of the Swatch Group. The company, founded in 1890 by Frédéric Rubattel and Walther Weyermann – two engravers and guilloche decorators – complements its product range with added-value services ranging from design consultancy to support for technical development.
For several years, Rubattel & Weyermann has made a priority of mastering traditional crafts in danger of dying out; two of which have been successfully integrated into the know-how of the company. Thus, by restoring machines known as «tours à guillocher» (rose engines) and «straight line engines», and training many members of the workforce in their use, the company has now acquired the art of guillochage, and so is able to meet the present needs of the Group’s prestige brands. In the same vein, and in pure watchmaking tradition, Rubattel & Weyermann can offer the opportunity to equip their timepieces with enameled dials.
