Angular Momentum of Switzerland
Angular Momentum of Switzerland & Manu Propria
Manu Propria (with my own hand)
Angular Momentum of Switzerland is a small, independent one-man manufacturer based in Bern, the Capital of Switzerland.
"In 2004 Angular Momentum was restructured with the vision to create and manufacture beautiful handmade timepieces, made under inclusion of old technologies and traditional craft with the premise that no single part is made by CNC machines, not depending to suppliers and all working steps from case making to the artwork done with my own hands."
