CIC 2019


In 1919, Adrien Jaquerod, rector of the Université de Neuchâtel, made an appeal to the Swiss watchmaking industry : to conserve its role as leader of the global watch market, it should organise its research. The positive response created in the 1920’s the Laboratoire Suisse de Recherche Horlogère (LSRH) and our Société Suisse de Chronométrie.

In order to celebrate the 100 years of Swiss horological research, the 2019 edition of the Congrès International de Chronométrie (International Congress of Chronometry) will gather historians, watchmakers and scientists on September 25 and 26 at the Stravinski Auditorium, Montreux, Switzerland. Speakers are invited to submit proposals relating to historical, technical or scientific standpoints aspects of horological research.

  • History of horological research
  • Current technical research
  • Current scientific research
  • Tomorrow’s innovation

While keeping the past century in mind, the leading edge innovation presented by the speakers will define the state of the art of horological research and provide an outlook into its future.
