In consultation with the designer, the Manufacturer will design a movement to fit the case. The development office designs a large scale blueprint folder for each little piece using dedicated 3D software. Materials and manufacturing methods are planned here, with full knowledge of the limitations of each workstation involved in the manufacture. It’s not unusual for a folder to contain a hundred or so plans, equivalent to two years of work. This task requires perfect knowledge of all the technical angles of watchmaking.
