The Swiss Watch

The Swiss Watch

The watch industry started in Geneva in mid 16 th century. In 1541 there was a ban on use of jewelry which forced the craftsman to turn to making watches. By the end of the century these watches received recognition for their quality. Switzerland today ranks third amongst the largest exporters after the chemical industry and machines globally.
