Just a few firms in Switzerland can generate silicon parts. The tools required for this task are very pricey, which comprises the labour needed to run and program them. Most watch manufacturers that use silicon components do not create the parts themselves. Is presently a time to begin given apparent levels of greater need? Note again that investments by watch makers into acoustic technologies in traditional watchmaking was going on for well over a decade. Though, little of the technology has trickled down into what we might call “cheap” timepieces. Jean-Claude Biver said see manufacturers won’t create their own silicon components till they can also make parts for different businesses in various industries.Biver’s vision for relevancy by watch makers in the future includes the bold but functional notion that observe makers will need to use their skills to create parts for other businesses like those that create medical equipment or robotics. In case the silicon part-making arm of a watch maker only needs 30 percent of the power of its outputsignal, then it’s only possible to do business if the other 70 percent of the output signal is used to market products others can purchase. Biver believes there are loads of software watch manufacturers can thrive in being successful at functioning, which might help them earn money allowing them the luxury to keep making mechanical watches around the side.
