The watch is entirely assembled and checked in Switzerland in the PH Saner SA workshop. This family business has specialized for more than 50 years in the assembly of mechanical movements and the casing-up.
PH Saner SA operates from the fitting of bracelets (T3) to the casing (T2), right up to the assembly of mechanical movements (T1). Within a site on a human scale, the workshop has the tools to combine the traditional and the modern, the made-to-measure and the mass-produced. Now in its third generation, the company is constantly expanding its skills with the development of new activities, including trimming and engraving.
Founded in 1970, PH Saner SA has lived to the rhythm of watchmaking. From a small family workshop specialising in the winding of mechanical movements, the company evolved into a production site in the 1980s. Driven by the quartz boom, it operated as an assembly plant for major watchmaking groups for over two decades. In the 2000s, the return of mechanical movements enabled the company to return to its core business: the assembly of watch movements.

WORKS ON PART
Each part is assembled by hand and checked at each stage by a watchmaker. The after-sales service is entirely operated in Switzerland, by the assembler.
The Hommage edition is guaranteed for two years from the date of shipment.
For each model, a watchmaker performs an initial visual inspection. This is followed by a water-resistance test, carried out with compressed air to avoid damaging the watch. A functional check is then carried out by placing the watch inside a balance wheel that simulates the movement of the wrist. Finally, a final visual inspection is conducted by the operator before shipping.
The casing is a very delicate step that requires the technical know-how of a watchmaker. The operator places the movement in the case, carefully attaching it to the base and dial. He then places each hand individually, before fitting the winding mechanism. A final check is then made to ensure that no dust has settled in the case or on the dial.
