Traditions are being lost and so is manual work. Horotec does not only want to distinguish themselves but to promote professions which are tending to disappear. These are the professions that have allowed watchmaking to reach its level of quality - losing them would be a terrible mistake. Founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds within this watchmaking heritage, it is with importance that Horotec will favor the know-how of local craftsmen. With their knowledge and experience, they will contribute to revisiting watchmaking tools.
The custom products offered by Horotec will be in limited quantities in order to distinguish them from their traditional products. The tool’s function does not change but its visual identity and physical appearance do. With the tools customized by Horotec, you will distinguish yourself from traditional watchmaking tools while also showing that you attach importance to quality products which will be reflected in your work.
