To make life easier for these smaller companies and to increase the expertise in watchmaking, the association openmovement wants to produce raw parts of movements that are available to all.
Openmovement was founded in Bern in 2009, out of a love for the art of watchmaking. The unique project of the association: the members would like to make the knowledge about the construction of watch movements, accumulated over decades, united in a first watch construction available to the general public. Something that, according to the association, has not existed before.
Thus, the small group of about ten experts from the watchmaking town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, revolutionizes the watch industry worldwide.
