Switzerland – La Chaux-de-Fonds / Le Locle, Watchmaking Town Planning

Recently, Angus Davies travelled to the watchmaking capital of La Chaux-de-Fonds. While visiting this Swiss city, Angus was granted an interview with Flavio Pellegrini of Ebel. Mr Pellegrini, the company’s President, revealed much about the firm he manages on a day-to-day basis and provided a fascinating insight into the brand’s products, in particular the Sport Classic collection.

During this interview with Flavio Pellegrini of Ebel, the President of the company covered a range of subjects, including aspects of the brand’s DNA, its product offering and the future direction of the company.

La Chaux-de-Fonds is synonymous with the creation of Swiss watches. It is located in the canton of Neuchâtel, close to the French border. In 1794, after fire devastated La Chaux-de-Fonds, the city was extensively reconstructed. Streets were arranged in a grid-like form with due thought to safety, health and fairness. Buildings were positioned to prevent potential fires spreading and consideration was given to natural light, an essential resource when working on clocks and watches.
