Synthetic gemstones, a French invention

It was a Frenchman, Auguste Verneuil, who invented the flame fusion process at the end of the 19th century, which enabled him to obtain, from aluminum oxide crystals, synthetic precious stones such as sapphire. and the ruby. This process is still used to make high-end “watch crystals”.
Sapphire was therefore obviously chosen to equip Apose watches. This exceptional material, difficult to handle and expensive to produce, is particularly resistant to shocks and scratches, and has a superb luster.

The best of sapphires for Apose watches

The challenge of an irreproachable sapphire crystal for Apose watches left no room for hesitation. Apose immediately worked with the undisputed specialist in synthetic sapphires: Saphir Industrie, founded in 1917 and now part of the famous Dalloz group. Since its creation, Saphir Industrie has been based in Septmontcel, a small village in Haut-Jura, known for centuries for the skill of its inhabitants, farmers in the summer and lapidaries in the winter.

Saphir Industrie, which supplies the biggest brands in Swiss watchmaking, has a state-of-the-art industrial tool. It employs 260 people in a brand new site of 7000 m2 which contrasts with the mountain charm of its small adopted village.
