The Swiss region of Le Locle and its surrounding valleys, La Chaux-de-Fonds, the valley of Saint Imier and the Bienne Region, have been particularly active in the manufacture of top-quality watches for the past 200 years.
A large number of workshops, specialised in the manufacture of pocket-chronographs since the late 19th century and later producing wristwatches, are located in this region. The Montblanc Haute Horlogerie Manufactures located in Villeret and Le Locle are among those still active in this business today.
While Montblanc’s exquisite timepieces keep track of the precious moments that embody our life stories, they are also living bodies in themselves. A timepiece’s individual segments — its wheels, spring, dial and movement — are proud and resilient organs which thrive beneath its skin, a case made of stainless steel or even sapphire crystal.
