In order to keep improving processes and logistics, the latter industrial activities have been brought together under one roof in Saignelégier thus creating an integrated watch exterior competence centre.
This division dedicated to the production of all watch exterior components employs 125 people. The existing building has been completely refurbished and extended to house the more than 20 many skills involved in case, bracelet and dial-making.
While in the Swiss watch industry these activities are often fragmented by trade typology, Bulgari has decided to unite them under one roof in order to promote synergies and foster the discovery of new expertise for both activities, the objective being to develop skills within a cross-disciplinary approach.
