Everything has been said about the crisis of quartz, I myself concluded my series of articles on this event saying that the Swiss industry was coming to the end of a cycle. The so-called Japanese rivalry was, in fact, only the late awakening of an industry then plunged into a lethargic sleep.

While some were throwing themselves headlong into the new technological paradigm of quartz ( read our article on the Beta 21 ), others went to explore new avenues to create a new rupture, from the inside, on pain of disappear forever.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
