Made in Switzerland

To be stamped “Swiss Made”, a watch must satisfy at least 60% Swiss value.

Since 2018, LAVENTURE watches are 100% Swiss value. 100% Swiss Made: All components are really produced in Switzerland.

A quality requirement

The proximity of suppliers, the choice of quality materials, the transformation by passionate craftsmen, are essential assets to meet the objective of creating beautiful products.

Local production

Design in Neuchâtel, conception and production in La Chaux-de-Fonds: only 18 km separate these two places.

Limited editions & production

Certain models from the LAVENTURE® collections are produced in very limited editions, numbered with a beautiful and deep engraving on the caseback. When a limited edition is sold out, it’s over. It will not be reproduced.

For the other models which are not limited edition, it is their annual production which is limited. A choice driven by the quality requirements of the House and the desire to equip more adventurers.
