2006 - A Foundation for the advancement of Fine Watchmaking
The 'Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie' fulfils an essential and primary purpose: to promote and develop the art and expertise of technical and precious Fine Watchmaking around the world through its creations, inventions and know-how.
In this early twenty-first century, Fine Watchmaking stands as a cultural and artistic exception: taking its origins in techniques invented between six and seven hundred years ago and which, over the course of its fabulous history, innumerable figures have striven to perfect, it appears destined for ever-greater success.
Spanning art and technique, Fine Watchmaking brings a little extra soul to our contemporary world. It embodies a culture that is the stuff of dreams. Fine Watchmaking is also a unique concentration of centuries-old expertise, craftsmanship and art. And while these origins and tradition provide the foundations on which Fine Watchmaking has grown, it has always looked to the future through aesthetic and technical innovation.
To diffuse, strengthen and develop this proud inheritance, the 'Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie' created the website www.hautehorlogerie.org, the Fine Watchmaking portal.
