Universo SA is the leading European manufacturer of watch hands, founded in 1909 by a group of small individual watch hand producers who merged into a single entity. Universo controls the entire complex process of manufacturing in this highly specialized field. Serving the most prestigious brands, the company is uncompromising in its values, its pursuit of new production processes and its efforts to make effective use of new materials.
Thanks to its close partnership with its customers, Universo successfully develops and launches innovative solutions aimed at both the design and the technical complexity of its products. They included for instance the high-definition electroforming of watch hands whose geometry is such that traditional swaging is impossible. Moreover, adapting production capacities to growing volume demand is not merely a matter of the means of production, which is why Universo placed specific emphasis and investment on qualitative human resources and on training.
