Discover Hands Manufacturing in Watchmaking

Tags: Hands, Manufacturing, Watchmaking supplier

More than 30 operations and at least one week are necessary to manufacture a hand for a high-end watch. The WATCHES.tv filmed into the whole production process at Fiedler's factory in Geneva. It is amazing to see how much attention such a tiny part needs.

    As hard as they are to make (with a machine) they are even harder to put on the pinions! IMHO the single hardest part of assembling a mechanical watch for me, is placing the hands back on. :)

    And I have been to Geneva and I bought a luxury watch there. At the time the exchange rate was very favorable to the dollar and instead of the dollar being a lot cheaper about a third cheaper it was a third more and therefore the deal was very good.
