In a move designed to ensure that all its production and creative facilities are housed under one roof, HAUTLENCE, the Neuchâtel watchmaking brand, is moving to the heart of the Swiss watch making metropolis: La Chaux-de-Fonds.
The move means HAUTLENCE’S craftsmen will be able to challenge still further traditional watchmaking traditions and the reinterpretation of the mechanics of time.

HAUTLENCE, Atelier D’Horlogerie Contemporaine, 150 Rue Numa Droz, La Chaux-De-Fonds.
The name, an anagram of Neuchâtel, was founded in 2004 earning the approval of collectors and watch-lovers around the world.
The brand draws its inspiration from the past, combining this with innovative mechanics to create new approaches to reading time. 11 specialists led by Guillaume Tetu, one of the brand's founders and its current CEO, are now working in departments which include Research and Design, Production, Assembly, Quality Control and after sales service.
Talent at their fingertips
The move to La Chaux-de-Fonds, ensures HAUTLENCE is now closer to a number of talented partners, including profile-turners, case-makers and dial-makers, as well as craftsmen in the arts of finishing and decoration such as hand-bevelling, guillochage and engraving.
