CRAFTSMANSHIP

A watch bearing the Poinçon de Genève is not only an instrument for measuring time, it is a work of art. To obtain this distinction, each watch component must be made with the utmost care, and finely decorated. The Poinçon de Genève is synonymous with exceptional aesthetic quality, and guarantees that the product purchased is flawless and unique, a source of great sentimental, artistic and material value.

Baseplates and bridges

These are the names of the solid parts that house the wheel trains and mechanisms. To eliminate any manufacturing marks, the Poinçon de Genève applies specific criteria on every section of these parts.

Adjustment system

At the “heart” of the watch, the balance-wheel and balance-spring guarantee the watch's accuracy. Due to its significance, the Poinçon de Genève defines and guarantees that the balance-spring fixing is elegant and the use of glue strictly prohibited.

Wheel train and jewels

The wheel trains are the symbols of a watch. They must be esthetically perfect. The Poinçon de Genève applies very strict decorative criteria in order to eliminate all machining marks.

Shaped parts

This category covers a number of components such as screws and pins. Each part must be finished in a specific way in order to eliminate manufacturing marks. They must have polished chamfers, straight-grained sides and smoothed down faces. More strict criteria can be applied to specific parts.
