Swatch – Since 1983
The late Nicolas Hayek established Swatch in 1983, and with the plastic quartz watches that numerous ‘serious’ authorities dislike today, he saved the whole watch industry. Quartz watches destroyed the Swiss watch industry during the 1970s and mid 1980s, and keeping in mind that brands like Omega, Rolex, Longines and so forth additionally made quartz watches, it were these modest models from Asia that individuals spent their cash on. Modest, dependable and you could simply throw them away when they quit working and get another. With Swatch, Hayek figured out how to create a competitive item to those modest quartz watches from Asia. With a shrewd development of the watch, that necessary less parts than most quartz watches, he had the option to decrease the expenses by 80% compared to the normal cost of a quartz watch. Moreover, the watches were quickly seen as popular and stylish. From the primary snapshot of presentation in Zurich in 1983, the Swatch watches were a moment hit. Worldwide.
Its brand name, Swatch, alludes to ‘second watch’ (and not Swiss watch!), as these were intended to be an extra as opposed to a genuine watch.
With these plastic Swatch watches, the Swatch Group (then Société de Microélectronique et d’Horlogerie) got such a lot of money flow, that it empowered them to go out and save a portion of the current very good quality watch brands. A piece of the Swatch Group is Swatch (obviously), Certina, Mido, Hamilton, Longines, Omega, Blancpain, Glashütte Original, Breguet and Harry Winston, for instance. Notwithstanding, Swatch Group likewise possesses creation companies like ETA (developments), Nivarox (springs), Comadur (sapphire, pottery), Simon et Membrez (cases, etc. You could say that without those chic Swatch watches during the 1980s, the watch business would most likely have appeared to be unique than it does today.
