Mark of Geneva, the strictest quality mark for fine watchmaking
Since the name Geneva is synonymous with advanced craftsmanship, in order to prevent this symbol from being abused, the Society of Watchmakers (Société des Horlogers) has asked the Geneva state government to publish laws that establish the rules for the implementation of the Geneva Seal. This may be the first countermeasure against counterfeit in history.
The Geneva Seal entered into force in 1886. Issued by the Geneva government, only a few watch factories can adhere to this tradition and win this award. The Geneva mark is engraved directly on the movement. Only official watch movements that are entirely handmade, assembled and adjusted in the Geneva area and meet the strict watchmaking quality requirements can obtain this official certification.
On the occasion of its 125th anniversary, the Geneva Mark has recently evolved into a standard for measuring timepieces: in addition to the 12 standards related to the movement, it has also added codes for watch assembly and performance. With the new rules, the new Geneva Seal not only follows the current and future evolutionary trends of the fine watchmaking industry, but also responds to customer demand for overall watch satisfaction.
For Roger Dubuis, the Geneva mark is not the end, but the starting point for excellence. It is for this reason that Roger Dubuis is the only watchmaker to engrav the Geneva mark on all timepieces, proving the brand’s principle of perseverance from the initial design to the final test of the watch. This is a distinctive logo recognized and trusted by connoisseurs.
